About this program

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

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.
