Trosolwg y cwrs

The creation of buildings is a complex operation that requires the skills of many disciplines. Our BEng Architectural Engineering degree aims to provide you with an in-depth understanding of civil engineering with a specific focus on structural engineering and the built environment. This course brings together the precision of engineering with the creativity of building design, with an emphasis on environmental factors.

You will develop a thorough understanding of theory, backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes, preparing you for a successful career in the civil engineering industry.

All of our civil engineering related degrees are fully accredited by the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers. In your professional development as an engineer, the BEng degree satisfies the educational requirements to become an Incorporated Engineer (IEng), and partially satisfies the requirements to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Note that if Chartered status is important to you, a four-year Cardiff MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route.

Other Cardiff University Architectural Engineering courses available include:

  • the opportunity to satisfy the full educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer if you choose a MEng 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
  • 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.

Nodweddion nodedig

  • This course offers you the opportunity to study at the highest-rated civil engineering school in the UK (according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework)
  • All of our courses are informed by industrial collaboration and accredited by the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers.
  • You’ll have 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.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

You will be taught the fundamental aspects of engineering through a combination of lectures and tutorials, supplemented by practical lab sessions and project-based work.

The taught modules in the first two years are largely compulsory, but options are available in year three. All students complete a 30-credit individual project in year three, for which they are allocated a supervisor from among the teaching staff.

There are opportunities for interaction with potential employers through careers fairs and guest lectures. Speakers from industry give regular lectures on their areas of expertise. These offer you the opportunity to hear experts speak on topics that are relevant to your degree and give you an insight into working in industry.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who is a member of the academic staff associated with your degree course. Your tutor will be there to advise you on academic, non-academic and personal matters in a confidential and informal manner. We aim to help you overcome any problem, however big or small, as smoothly and quickly as possible.

For the 30-credit project in year three, you will be allocated a supervisor in the relevant area of research specialism and meet regularly.

You will have access through the Learning Central website to relevant multimedia material, presentations, lecture handouts, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises and discussion circles. Opportunities for you to reflect on your abilities and performance are available through the Learning Central ‘Personal Development Planning’ module.

An extensive programme of careers lectures and workshops is delivered within the School and a Careers Consultant is also available.  

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.

Feedback

We’ll provide you with frequent feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including oral feedback in classes like design and project work and via return of marked coursework.

The opportunity to test your knowledge and understanding will be provided throughout the semester via class tests in Years 1 and 2, plus feedback on written assessments.  Occasionally, peer assessment of an individual’s contribution to a group may be used, and you may also receive oral feedback on presentations and contributions to group activities.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Your progress in each module is assessed at various stages throughout each semester (through a short test) to give you feedback on your progress, then finally at the end of the appropriate semester. Assessment is undertaken using methods including formal written examinations, case studies, assignments and project work.

Examinations count for 60% to 70% of all assessment throughout the course, depending on the options chosen. The remainder is mainly project work and larger pieces of coursework, plus performance in laboratories.

The opportunity to test knowledge and understanding is given through class tests throughout years one and two, plus feedback on written assessments. Occasionally, peer assessment of an individual’s contribution to a group may be used, and students may also receive oral feedback on presentations and contributions to group activities.

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:

  • develop your understanding of architecture, building conceptual design and building services within the context of engineering and construction
  • 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 civil engineering context

Gyrfaoedd

Rhagolygon gyrfa

Rhagolygon gyrfa

Our graduates are mainly employed in the civil and structural engineering fields with major consultancy and contracting firms, with roles such as graduate civil or structural engineer or building design engineer.

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 graduates are typically employed in major companies such as Arup, Atkins, Capita Symonds and Ramboll, in destinations all over the UK and further afield. We also have graduates working for architectural and building services practices.

A number of graduates have opted for further study, either at MSc or PhD level, at institutions across the UK.

Others have chosen to work for national and multinational companies. Recent examples include companies in the financial, media and marketing sectors with destinations including Deloitte, PwC and Virgin.
