Cardiff University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The complexity and sophistication of modern engineering requires a multidisciplinary approach. Industry is therefore seeking engineers with broad knowledge and skilled in more than one of the traditional engineering disciplines. The Integrated Engineering degree embraces many aspects of electrical, electronic, mechanical and manufacturing engineering. By completing this course you will qualify as an engineer of the highest quality: your broad knowledge of various aspects of engineering will ensure you can interact with engineers from all the traditional engineering disciplines in any multidisciplinary environment. You will also become familiar with the role of engineering within the business environment, as particular attention is paid to economics, management and law. Choosing this four-year Cardiff MEng Integrated Engineering degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng. The MEng allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project. Other Cardiff University Integrated Engineering courses include: A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of engineering if you choose a BEng course The opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option The opportunity to study abroad at a partner institution for one semester if you choose the relevant MEng (International) degree option The opportunity to study a language if you choose the relevant MEng degree option with a sandwich year at a university in France, Germany or Spain Distinctive features The distinctive features of the course include: Fast-track route to Chartered Engineer status The course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Energy Institute The integrated course, which draws on modules taught across the School, benefits from the ‘Excellent’ teaching rating achieved by the School The facilities that come with a successful research unit The opportunity to learn from leaders in their fields, through direct access to academic staff, many of whom are Chartered Engineers or have worked in industry An open and engaging culture between students and staff Some external scholarships may be available from the UK Power Academy and UK Electronic Skills Foundation UKESF (Cardiff is a member of both schemes)
