Subject

Energy engineering

**About This Course**

As the demand for alternate energies grows, so does the demand for the experienced Energy Engineering graduates with a strong connection to the industry.

The course is backed by the East of England Energy Group and was established in collaboration with major energy industries. 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 an impressive network that will enrich your learning experience.

**Overview**

Investment in alternative energies is at an all-time high, and that includes a strong industry focus on the next generation of engineers. 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 will 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 encourages and promotes innovation and has shaped the design and delivery of the course.

Our Energy Engineering courses are tailored to the sector and accredited by the Energy Institute. 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 will focus more closely on Energy. You will have access to resources 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 the different 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: **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?
