Course summary

Overview As the demand for alternate energies grows, so does the demand for experienced Energy Engineering graduates who are ready to enter the industry. This course is backed by the East of England Energy Group and was established in collaboration with major energy industries and their supply network. These industry connections have shaped the design and delivery of our programme. Its content is tightly linked to the skills the industry requires, plus you’ll benefit from an impressive network that will enrich your learning experience. About This Course Investment in a sustainable energy sources is at an all-time high, and that includes a strong industry focus on the next generation of engineers with the appropriate skillset. Interaction with industry is a key component of this course, which opens significant career pathways and focuses on the sustainable future of energy production, usage and supply. On this course, you’ll apply your skills to increase efficiency and further develop sustainable sources of energy, building operations, and manufacturing processes. East Anglia is a significant region for energy engineering, and you’ll see the benefits of our connections with local industry from the very start of your three-year course. We place a strong emphasis on ‘soft skills’ – building your network through site visits and opportunities for short-term internships and placements, facilitated by our SELECT interview scheme. Our close partnerships with major engineering companies encourage and promote innovation and have shaped the design and delivery of the course. Our Energy Engineering courses are tailored to the sector and are accredited by the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET). Graduates are highly employable, becoming the engineers the energy industry needs, immediately and for the future. 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. In your second year, you’ll focus more closely on Energy. You will be able to enrich and tailor your experience by choosing modules from UEA Schools like Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so that your learning is limitless. This course is for those students with an interest in the sustainable future of energy production, usage and supply. As well as gaining a solid grounding in the foundations of engineering as a wider subject, you’ll be introduced to the specifics of energy engineering by practicing energy engineers and graduate as a highly employable and well-connected individual. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website:


Year 1 is made up of compulsory modules that will provide you with a solid grounding in engineering. These modules include Engineering Studies, Engineering Principles and Law and Mathematics for Scientists. In your second and third year, 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 tailor to your own interests.
