Course summary

Overview This course combines four years of engineering studies with a year of hands-on industry experience, aiming to produce the future leaders of the engineering sector. A historic lack of skills in the sector means that engineers are in high demand, particularly those with the skills to take us through the digital age. In the School of Engineering at UEA, we’re dedicated to developing this new breed of engineers. That's why Productivity East, the home of Engineering at UEA, was established—to support the development of the engineers of the future. Our integrated Master’s degree in Engineering will help you grasp the technological and digital developments that are shaping key industries like the energy sector. From the outset, you’ll be able to integrate your learning in a real industrial context, supporting the development of your soft and hard engineering knowledge and skills. In the third year of your engineering studies, you’ll consolidate your learning even further on a year-long industrial placement. About this course This course offers the first steps to your development as a Chartered Engineer, presenting all the learning experiences and opportunities for industrial connection that will support your aspirations. Our engineering courses follow an integrated programme structure for the first year. This broadens your insight into the wealth of opportunities that are available to you as a student of engineering, as you forge your future career pathway. This MEng Engineering with a Year in Industry course delivers the learning outcomes and skills required of a graduate engineer seeking Chartered Engineer status. You’ll also be able to tailor your engineering studies to your interests, selecting from our catalogue of optional modules. Our general engineering course presents an opportunity to access resources and experience from across UEA Schools such as Environmental Sciences and Computing Sciences, so your learning can match your personal and career ambitions. For your first two years, you’ll follow the same programme as our BEng Engineering course. You’ll then spend your third year on an industrial placement, getting professional experience first-hand and consolidating the skills you’ve built in your engineering studies so far. Following your year in industry, you’ll return to UEA with a focus on individual and group project work. The final-year multidisciplinary design project will mark the culmination of your study, encouraging you to explore the breadth of your learning in partnership with industry. You’ll work from a real-world industrial brief, and you’ll be encouraged to undertake site visits so that you can develop proposals, designs, and operations supported by financial considerations. You’ll consider the project planning, implementation, and delivery in association with risk, all themes fundamental to engineering businesses. You’ll then present your proposals to professional engineers. We produce pioneering graduates with the intellectual flexibility to support a changing industry. Our Master’s degree in engineering with a year in industry establishes a new breed of highly versatile engineers who can span the boundaries of the engineering disciplines, adapt to change, and find solutions to society’s biggest challenges.
