Subject

Energy engineering

**About This Course**

As the demand for alternate energies grows, so does the demand for Energy Engineering graduates. This course is backed by the East of England Energy Group (EEEGr).

The course was established as a result of strong support from industry, and 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 energy engineering by practicing energy engineers. So you’ll graduate expert in wind turbines, micro-hydro schemes, nuclear power, biofuels and more – and ready to pursue successful career in the sector.

**Overview**

East Anglia is a significant region for energy engineering, and you’ll understand the benefits of our connections with local industry from the very 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 which are critical to the sector and to ensuring we can deliver the engineers the energy industry needs today, and for 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, after which you can elect to tailor the course or continue to pursue a broad-based approach. We work closely with other UEA Schools including Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so that your learning is informed by a range of expertise.

**Disclaimer**

Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**

Modules

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.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
