**About This Course**

Broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of engineering with our four-year MEng degree.

This 4-year course will help you develop your capacity to answer society’s biggest questions and provide you with integrated learning opportunities for the development of a holistic knowledge and skill set.

Engineering is the pursuit of solutions. Engineers are arguably the most significant shapers of society and will define the next industrial revolution. Your curiosity will be encouraged and enriched from the day you start the course, and you will leave here as graduates with a rich experience and the intellectual flexibility to succeed.

Our department’s mission is to guide you in the principles and theories of engineering while also ensuring you are confident in dealing with clients and operating in teams and have all the soft skills needed to thrive throughout your course and future career.

**Overview**

As new energy sources like wind, nuclear or biofuels become increasingly widespread, so does the need for highly intelligent and qualified energy engineers. All the engineering courses at UEA benefit from a close connection to local industry and this course has been designed and delivered in line with industry needs. East Anglia is a major hub for the UK energy sector, giving you a unique opportunity to explore a wide range of career paths.

Our close partnerships with major engineering companies enable us to support and encourage skills that are critical to the sector, like innovation and networking skills. Graduates of this course are the engineers the energy industry needs, right now and in the long term.

**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 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 major design project with students from a variety of disciplines where you will work as part of a team. This will give you the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice.

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?
