About This Course

Deepen your knowledge and understanding of engineering and fast-track your journey to becoming a chartered engineer with our four-year MEng Engineering degree.

For your first three years you’ll follow the same programme as our BEng Engineering students. Then in your final year you will put what you’ve learnt to the test with a multidisciplinary design project. A major team-based project, it will mark the culmination of your study and will encourage you to explore the breadth of your learning in the context of an industrial project. You’ll be given a real brief to work from, and you’ll be encouraged to undertake site visits, engage with the company as a client and develop proposals, which you’ll then present to professional engineers.

Our programmes promote the development of a new breed of highly versatile engineering graduate, possessing the capacity to take the lead in finding solutions to society’s biggest challenges. We aim to produce pioneering graduates, capable of supporting a changing industry through their intellectual flexibility.

Overview

All engineering courses within the School share an integrated programme structure during the first year to demonstrate the potential breadth of the discipline. In subsequent years you can tailor your course or continue to pursue a broad-based approach. We work closely with other UEA Schools including Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so your learning is informed by a range of expertise.

You’ll benefit from and experience 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 meeting role-models, attending site visits and exploring opportunities for short-term internships and placements. We actively encourage you to develop your networking abilities, learning to make the most of your exposure to our industrial contacts. You’ll also have the option of participating in SELECT, UEA’s engineering internship scheme, from your first year.

Subject options

This course offers the following subject options:

  • Electronic and Electrical
  • Mechanical

Modules

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.
