Program description

Civil and Environmental Engineering (International) (MEng)

Our Civil and Environmental Engineering programme offers you a highly regarded degree course at one of the top universities in this field, preparing you for exciting future career opportunities in designing and working with the built and natural environments.

You will develop a thorough understanding of civil and environmental engineering theory, which will be backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes.

The added advantage of this MEng Civil and Environmental Engineering (International) course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. There are currently more than 65 destination universities on four continents.

Choosing the four-year MEng degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng and it has therefore become the preferred route for this.

The MEng allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge in civil and environmental engineering. 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.

Admission requirements

Typical A level offer

AAA - AAB including Mathematics. If you are studying a science A level, a pass in the practical element (where applicable) will be required. Please note, General Studies will not be accepted.

Extended Project Qualification: Applicants with grade A in the EPQ will typically receive an offer one grade lower than the standard A level offer. Please note that any subject specific requirements must still be met.

Qualification

What skills will I practise and develop?

This course is currently undergoing accreditation via the Engineering Council, as it is a new course. The core competencies required for UK-SPEC (UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence) are integrated throughout the taught years of the course. 

You will develop a number of practical skills during the laboratory-based sessions, while there is a consistent core of management skills and personal development. 

You will also:

  • Develop your understanding of the application of architecture, building conceptual design and building services within the context of engineering and construction
  • Develop your understanding of environmental problems arising from activities and the consequences of construction –  and how to mitigate or remedy them
  • Enhance your communication skills, both orally and in writing through a series of reports and assignments
  • Develop your knowledge, skills and confidence to solve multidisciplinary problems in a civil engineering context

Continuing studies

A number of graduates have opted for further study, either at MSc or PhD level, at Cardiff as well as institutions across the UK and beyond.

Career opportunities

Graduates from this course are mainly employed in the civil engineering industry with major consultancy and contracting firms, such as Sir Robert McAlpine, Ramboll, Arup, Mott McDonald and others. Typical roles include graduate civil engineer, site engineer or design engineer, and they are based throughout the UK as well as further afield.
