This four-year course will help you develop your capacity to solve society’s biggest challenges. Through integrated learning opportunities, you’ll develop a holistic knowledge and skill set that will serve you throughout your studies and beyond. Engineering is the pursuit of solutions. Engineers are arguably the most significant shapers of society and will define the next industrial revolution. Your curiosity will be encouraged and enriched from the day you start the course, and you’ll leave here as a graduate with rich practical experience and the intellectual flexibility to succeed as an engineer. Our department’s mission is to equip you with all the knowledge you will need to thrive as an engineer, while also ensuring you are confident in dealing with clients and operating in teams. As well as knowledge and practical techniques, you will develop all the soft skills needed to succeed throughout your course and future career. About This Course As investment in new energy sources like wind, solar, nuclear and biofuels increases, so does the need for highly qualified energy engineers. This integrated master’s programme opens up a significant range of career pathways, focusing on the sustainable future of energy production, usage, and supply. East Anglia is a major hub for the UK energy sector, giving you a unique opportunity to explore a wide range of potential career paths during your studies. For example, in previous years, students have enjoyed site visits to wind-farm installations and operation sites as well as the Sizewell nuclear plant. All engineering courses at UEA benefit from this close connection to local industry and this course has been designed and delivered in line with industry needs. Our close partnerships with major engineering companies enable us to support and encourage skills that are critical to the sector, like innovation and networking skills. Graduates of this course are the engineers the energy industry needs, right now and in the long term. Each of our engineering courses follows an integrated programme structure for the first year. This is designed to provide you with a broad insight into the incredible potential of engineering as a discipline. From your second year onwards, you will focus more closely on energy. You will be able to enrich your experience and tailor your degree to your own interests by choosing modules from other UEA Schools like Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so that your learning is limitless.

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 major design project with students from a variety of disciplines where you will work as part of a team. This will give you the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice.
