Overview and aims of the Programme Many employers need professional engineers who have a broad understanding of key engineering disciplines and expertise in more than one area. Integrated engineers have a wide set of skills which they can apply to complex engineering challenges and use to interact with engineers across specialisms. Our multidisciplinary course, built around electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering topics, aims to produce experts in the areas of manufacturing, mechatronics, computer-aided design, and renewable energy. Your broad knowledge of the various aspects of engineering will ensure you can interact with engineers across the disciplines, as well as being familiar with the business environment. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to explore a range of authentic engineering problems and industry-focused scenarios, to work on both individually and with student engineers from other degree programmes. Group work mirrors the relationships of an engineering team and will help you to build professional skills, such as teamwork and communication. Our open access makerspace provides a place for you to design, create and collaborate. Distinctive Features of the Programme Professionally accredited course Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Flexible course You can make your degree your own with the flexibility to choose where you want to focus your studies later in the course. If you change your mind about your programme, in most cases you may request a switch at the end of the first year. Join Cardiff Racing You will have the opportunity to join Cardiff Racing and participate in the design, development, construction, and testing of a proven Formula Student racing car. Industry-standard facilities You will have access to designated design studio space, specialist laboratories, workshops, and computer suites. External scholarships available Students are eligible to apply for external scholarships and summer placements from the UK Power Academy and UK Electronic Skills Foundation UKESF (Cardiff University is a member of both schemes).
