Programmes in the Spotlight
- Neuroimaging Methods & Applications MSc.
The hub of the MSc is the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC). Recent advances in non-invasive neuroimaging and neurophysiology techniques seem to offer a bridge between investigations of single neurons through to studies of human cognition and perception, by providing a window on brain structure and function at the regional level. This MSc programme aims to equip graduate students with the methodological tools to undertake neuroimaging research at the highest level.
A key feature of this course is that students will gain hands-on experience using all of the following techniques: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Electroencephalography (EEG) and Trans-cranial Stimulation (TMS/TDCS).
Run in conjunction with the Welsh School of Architecture and the School of Geography and Planning, this course enables students to learn by deploying design, theory, and development and design control practices, which inform urban design processes.
Urban design is transdisciplinary, straddling professional fields such as architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and public policy, and also disciplines such as politics, economics, sociology and cultural studies. The programme fully embraces this transdisciplinarity through the theory, research training and design teaching it offers.
You will learn from academics in two Schools which are ranked among the top 50 in the world. The course is taught via lectures, workshops and design studios, by staff drawn from both the architecture and planning schools, who are leading experts in their fields. Design Tutors include leading practitioners who bring their experience of cutting edge practice to the core of design studio work.
Accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
- Civil Engineering (MEng).
Study this four-year programme at the highest civil engineering school in the UK for their research and its impact.
You will develop a thorough understanding of civil engineering theory, which will be backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field courses and design classes, enabling you to develop your career in any area of the civil engineering industry. 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.
You will 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.
Graduates from this course are mainly employed in the civil engineering industry with major consultancy and contracting firms, others have chosen to work for national and multinational companies. Recent examples include companies in the financial, media and petrochemical sectors with destinations including Deloitte, PwC, Virgin and Shell.
