About This Course

As the demand for alternative energies grows, so does the demand for Energy Engineering graduates. This course was established as a result of strong support from industry, and is backed by the East of England Energy Group (EEEGr). These 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 generous contact with industry to enrich your learning experience.

As well as gaining a solid grounding in the foundations of engineering as a wider subject, you’ll be introduced to the specifics of the different aspects of energy engineering by practicing energy engineers. So you’ll graduate confident in your knowledge of renewable energy generation – wind turbines, micro-hydro schemes, nuclear power, biofuels and more – and ready to pursue a successful career in the sector.

Overview

East Anglia is a major region for energy engineering, and you’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your three-year course. You’ll get a taste of the many career paths energy engineering could open up to you through role-model meetings, site visits and opportunities for short-term internships and placements.

Our close partnerships with major engineering companies also enable us to support and encourage student innovation and the development of your networking skills. Both of these are critical to the sector and to ensuring that we can deliver the engineers the energy industry needs, both today and in the future.

All engineering courses within the School share an integrated programme structure during the first year, to demonstrate the potential breadth of the discipline. We work closely with other UEA Schools including Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so your learning is informed by a range of expertise.

This course is distinguished from our BEng Energy Engineering with Environmental Management by offering greater flexibility of option modules but a reduced number related to environmental management.
