Engineers use maths, science and technology to design, test and develop machines, structures and processes. From farming to medicine to energy, engineers are solving the big problems facing the world today.
Why study with us
Engineers bring ideas to life. The devices we use to communicate, our built environment and infrastructure, and the mechanical products and processes we rely on have all been designed and constructed by engineers. Engineers are finding solutions to some of the world's most complex challenges. They’re developing advanced prosthetics, producing sustainable materials, investigating alternative fuels and creating clean water systems.
Facilities and location
Mechanical and manufacturing laboratoriesLocated in Queen's Buildings
Our mechanical and medical engineers can use our labs to gain practical skills in testing and diagnostics, and they can access a wide range of 3D printing technologies.
Electrical power system simulatorLocated in Queen's Buildings
Our electrical and electronic engineering students can use our labs to get a real feel for working on a power grid, including setting up, running and testing simulations of a power system.
High voltage laboratoryLocated in Queen's Buildings
Our electrical and electronic engineers can use our extensive facilities to improve their understanding of high voltage systems and phenomena, from the National Grid to alternative insulation gases to lightning strikes on aircraft.
Civil engineering laboratoriesLocated in Queen's Buildings
Our civil, environmental and architectural engineers can use our labs to gain practical experiences in water-based designs, such as pipes, and understand and test concrete and its properties.
Cardiff Racing paddockLocated in Queen's Buildings
We provide support, facilities, and ample space for the Cardiff Racing team to build, design and work on racing cars for the Formula Student event.
Explore our many accredited BEng and MEng degree courses, each with outstanding industrial relationships and a diverse student community. Watch the videos below for an overview of the courses and support available to you when you study with us.
Our student experience
We are a friendly and inclusive engineering school with a diverse range of students and staff. Our students are highly valued by employers and 97% of our graduates were in employment or further study, due to start a new job or course, or doing other activities like travelling 15 months after the end of their course (HESA data).
