Course summary

Overview Choose an engineering programme that is tailored to your specific interests and fast-track your journey to becoming a chartered engineer with our four-year MEng degree. You’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your course. You’ll get a taste of the many career paths engineering will open up to you, through mentors and role-models, site visits, and short-term internships and placements. We actively encourage you to develop your networking abilities, learning to make the most of our industrial contacts. You’ll also have the option of participating in our Select partnership scheme and UEA’s Engineering internship schemes to enhance your studies.   About This Course 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. In your second year, you’ll have the knowledge and experience to tailor your degree programme to 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 could follow a learning pathway more closely aligned to Mechanical or Electronic and Electrical engineering. You’ll have 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 ambitions and career aspirations. For your first three years, you’ll follow the same programme as our BEng Engineering course. Then in your final year, you’ll focus on a multidisciplinary design project. This major team-based project will mark the culmination of your study and will encourage you to explore the breadth of your learning in partnership with industry. You’ll be given a real brief to work from, and you’ll be encouraged to undertake site visits so that you can develop proposals, which you’ll then present to professional engineers. We produce pioneering graduates who are capable of supporting a changing industry through their intellectual flexibility. Our courses promote the development of a new breed of highly versatile engineers, with the capacity to find solutions to society’s biggest challenges. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.

Subject options

This course offers the following subject options:

  • Electronic and Electrical
  • Mechanical


Year 1 is made up of compulsory modules which will provide you with a solid grounding in mathematics and engineering. These modules include Engineering Studies, Engineering Principles and Law and Mathematics for Scientists. As your studies progress, you will develop knowledge of general, Mechanical or Electronic and Electrical engineering. In Years 2 and 3, you will have a combination of compulsory modules - such as Analogue and Digital Electronics - and optional modules such as Vibration and Dynamics or Meteorology and Global Environmental Change. You will also complete an individual research project in your final year which you can be based on your own engineering interests. In your final year, you will complete a team-based design project required for Engineering Council accreditation. This will give you the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice and address and solve a real-world problem.
