Course summary

Overview This three-year course will help you develop your capacity to answer society’s biggest questions and provide you with the tools for integrated learning. Engineering is the pursuit of solutions. Engineers are arguably the most significant shapers of society, poised to lead the innovations of the digital revolution. Studying at UEA will bring the opportunities of this new industrial phase to your learning experiences. You’ll graduate as a digital change-agent, enabling engineering industries to deliver smarter digital responses to societal challenges. Throughout this course, you’ll have the opportunity to explore several pathways of engineering before choosing a specialised pathway, such as mechanical or electronic and electrical engineering. Alternatively, you may choose to remain on the general engineering pathway, focusing on a breadth of knowledge and skills. About This Course This is a three-year course that will nurture your curiosity and give you the tools, experience, and insight you need to pursue a career in engineering. Our engineering courses follow an integrated programme structure for the first year. This broadens your insight into the wealth of opportunity that is available to you as a student of engineering, as you forge your future career pathway. In your second year, you can tailor your course to pursue the areas of study that are of particular relevance to you. You may choose to keep your degree focused on a breadth of learning or alternatively you can pursue a learning pathway more closely aligned to Mechanical or Electronic and Electrical engineering. You’ll have further access to experience and resources from across UEA Schools such as Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, ensuring that your learning opportunities match your personal and career ambitions. Throughout your course, we will facilitate connections with our extensive network of industrial contacts through the Select partnership programme and UEA internship schemes. You’ll also encounter a varied range of role models, site visits and experiences that will shape your learning and future in engineering, to help you explore the many potential career paths you might choose to follow. This course is perfect for aspiring engineers who are committed to studying for three years – with the option to extend your learning. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
