Program description

Civil Engineering with Year in Europe (France) (MEng)

Civil engineers play a key role in planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the physical environment around us, including buildings and structures, flood defences and water supply programmes.

Our Civil 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.

The added advantage of this MEng Civil Engineering course with a year in France is that you study the French language as part of the first three years and spend year four studying engineering at a partner university abroad before returning to Cardiff for the fifth year.

This MEng degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng.

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.

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

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).

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 and Critical Thinking 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 accredited via the Engineering Council, meaning the core competencies of UK-SPEC (UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence) are integrated throughout the taught years of the course.

Through lab work you will develop practical skills focused on the application of a range of engineering principles to real-life technological, regulatory and ethical problems encountered in the engineering profession.

You will develop your French language skills and gain an understanding of the academic culture of Higher Education and professional practice in France.

You will also:

  • 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 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.
