  • Application Deadline
  • 36 months
    Duration
University rank #101 (ARWU) Cardiff, United Kingdom
The Integrated Engineering degree programme from Cardiff University provides you with a broad engineering education which covers a wide range of engineering principles embracing mechanical, manufacturing, electrical and electronic engineering, information technology and computer-aided design.

Overview

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

The Integrated Engineering degree programme from Cardiff University embraces many aspects of electrical, electronic, mechanical and manufacturing engineering. By completing this course you will qualify as an engineer of the highest quality: 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, a four-year Cardiff MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than this BEng course.

Other Cardiff University 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

Distinctive features

The distinctive features of the course include:

  • 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
  • This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Energy Institute.
  • Some external scholarships may be available from the UK Power Academy and UK Electronic Skills Foundation UKESF (Cardiff is a member of both schemes).

Career prospects

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.
