Civil Engineering at Cardiff offers you a highly regarded degree course at one of the top universities in this area with a wealth of exciting future career opportunities in designing and working with the built and natural environments, nationally and internationally. You will develop a thorough understanding of civil engineering theory, which will be backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field courses and design classes, enabling you to develop your career in any area of the Civil Engineering industry. You will also gain significant experience in a range of transferrable skills for whatever career path you choose.
The MEng programme is a Civil Engineering degree which leads to a higher qualification than the traditional BEng programme, and requires an additional year of study. The programme shares the first two years with the BEng programme, while you can use the final two years of study to expand and strengthen your knowledge in Civil Engineering. This offers you a quicker, more direct route to chartered engineer status than the BEng programme and has therefore become the preferred route to becoming a chartered engineer. By choosing the MEng you will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques required to manage and organise a multi-disciplinary engineering design project.
The MEng degree is fully accredited by the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers and satisfies the educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
The MEng degree produces highly numerate, analytical and adaptable graduates and so is highly regarded by employers in Civil Engineering, the built and natural environment and many other professions. For example, our graduates may undertake careers in the Forces, the financial sector or other high-ranking professions where the skills obtained are highly valued. It is ideal preparation for further study (either at MSc or PhD level).
We are delighted to answer any queries you may have on our courses or the application process – please get in touch with us via the contact details provided.
The Year in Europe Programme
The Year in Europe programme is also an enhancement of the MEng programmes, whereby you will spend a year attending a Higher Education establishment in France. Your year in Europe is undertaken after completing your first three years of study in Cardiff, so the MEng programme will take five years to complete.
At Cardiff, we place a great emphasis on flexibility, and appreciate that you may be unsure of your future and which path to choose. If you are unable to decide which degree programme is the right one for you, you can change your course at a later date.
