Program description

Mechanical Engineering With a Year in Europe (France) (MEng)

Mechanical engineers are essential to the workings of the modern world, combining imagination and technology to offer innovative solutions across society and industry. They work across all industrial sectors, developing and manufacturing well-designed products through efficient manufacturing processes.

Choosing the MEng program offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the three-year BEng. It allows you to use years three and five to expand and strengthen your knowledge in mechanical 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.

An added advantage of this course 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.

Other Cardiff University Mechanical Engineering courses include:

  • A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering if you choose a BEng course
  • 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

Distinctive features

The distinctive features of the course include:

  • Fast-track route to Chartered Engineer status
  • The opportunity to learn in a research-led teaching institution served by staff rated highly in the last Research Excellence Framework
  • The facilities that come with a successful research unit
  • The opportunity to learn from leaders in their fields, through direct access to academic staff, many of whom are Chartered Engineers or have worked in industry
  • Accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers
  • The opportunity to participate in the design, development, construction, testing and competition of a proven Formula Student racing car
  • An open and engaging culture between students and staff
  • The opportunity to improve your French language skills
  • A year spent studying at a French university

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2020/21 academic year. The final modules will be published by September.

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.
