Integrated Engineering (with a year in industry)

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 the Cardiff MEng Integrated Engineering degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the shorter BEng. It 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. This course includes the opportunity to take a year of industrial placement between your second and third years of academic study. With this option we will support you in finding a placement that will allow you to experience at first- hand, a professional working environment. If you are successful in securing a placement you will be paid a salary and will enhance your employability skills through direct experience of working in business, industry or the public sector.
