Program description

Civil & Environmental Engineering (International) (Year in Industry) (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.

Choosing this four-year Cardiff MEng Civil and Environmental Engineering degree offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng.

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.

An added advantage of this International course is that one semester of year four 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.

Other Cardiff University Civil and Environmental Engineering courses include:

  • A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of civil and environmental engineering if you choose a BEng course.
  • 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.

Admission requirements
