Overview Electrical and electronic engineers have a vital role to play in responding to the climate crisis and shaping the future of our society. They bring key expertise to deliver electrification and digitisation across multiple sectors such as transport, power generation, heating, and cooling, and beyond. There is therefore a growing need for highly competent electrical and electronic engineers, especially those with the skills to tackle society’s biggest challenges. The School of Engineering at UEA is mindful of the need to develop this new breed of electrical and electronics engineers and its Institute of Productivity East was established to support both the demand for the volume and characteristics of the engineers that are needed for the future. About MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering with a Year in Industry is professionally accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and designed to form the next generation electrical and electronic engineers. All engineering courses within the School of Engineering share an integrated programme structure for the first year, giving you a well-rounded skills base to build upon. From the second year onwards, you’ll specialise in electrical and electronics engineering, refining your theoretical knowledge and practical skills. You’ll also have the chance to work closely with other UEA Schools including Environmental Sciences and Computing Sciences, so your learning is limitless. The inclusion of a year in industry within your MEng degree will enhance your learning, giving you real-world engineering experience and a deeper insight into your chosen career. From day one, you’ll have access to a wide range of simulation tools and experimental lab facilities. You’ll make use of our well-equipped electrical and electronics lab throughout your engineering studies, for various electronics design projects and electric circuit prototyping and testing. Our electrical power lab is equipped with electrical machine test rigs, allowing for practical, experimental study of various types of electrical motors and drives. You’ll also learn how to model and analyse different engineering systems using industry-standard simulation software such as MATLAB/Simulink, ANSYS, and COMSOL Multiphysics finite element tools. You’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your course. Productivity East, our state-of-the-art engineering facility, offers a space for connection between UEA engineering students and our industrial partners. These connections will give you unparalleled industry insight, helping you forge your own career pathway. Through meeting role-models, attending site visits, and networking with professional engineers, you’ll have a clear sense of the many career options available to you. This close contact with industry will also help you decide where you’d like to spend your industrial placement year. In addition, you can take advantage of our annual Select partnership scheme, an exclusive employability event for engineering students which attracts several prestigious employers each year.
How to apply
