Program description

Integrated Engineering (BEng)

The complexity and sophistication of modern engineering requires a multidisciplinary approach. Industry is therefore seeking engineers with broad knowledge and skills in more than one of the traditional engineering disciplines.

The BEng Integrated Engineering is a multidisciplinary degree built around electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering, which aims to produce experts in the areas of manufacturing, mechatronics, computer-aided design, and renewable energy. 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.

Note that if Chartered status is important to you, one of our MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than this BEng course.

Other integrated engineering courses available may include:

  • 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

Admission requirements

Typical A level offer

AAB-ABB. Must include Maths. You will need to pass the science practical element of the A-level if this is part of your programme of study.

Extended/International Project Qualification: Applicants with grade A in the EPQ/IPQ 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 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
  • Enhance your team-working skills, ability to exercise original thought and good professional judgement.

Career opportunities

In 2015/16, 95% of the School’s graduates who were available for work reported they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduation.

Our integrated engineering graduates hold key positions in leading firms such as Halcrow, Atkins, BP, BAE Systems, RWE npower, Mott McDonald, Network Rail, Rolls Royce, Ford, Tata Steel, Nokia, Bosch and beyond. Our graduates have also moved on to work within local government, UK and international utility companies and organisations such as Climate Energy and GlaxoSmithKline.

Being at the forefront of engineering research means Cardiff has excellent links with industry. These links have been developed with companies, both in the UK and overseas, through our Year in Industry schemes and through consultancy work by staff. This involves advising on matters such as energy policy, bridge design, magnetic materials and semiconductor devices.

Graduate careers

  • Civil Engineer
  • Project Manager
