**About This Course**

As the demand for alternate energy sources grows, so does the demand for experienced energy engineering graduates equipped with the knowledge of the various energy technologies.

This course is backed by the East of England Energy Group and was established as a result of strong support from industry. 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**

Energy Engineering at UEA, with the addition of Environmental Management, provides a cross-disciplinary understanding of societal and environmental challenges. With optional modules like environmental politics and policy making, climate change and modelling of environmental processes, this course opens significant career pathways and produces graduates with highly specified and desired skills.

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. Our partnerships with major engineering companies encourages and promotes innovation in our students. We also place a strong emphasis on ‘soft skills’, building your network through site visits and opportunities for short-term internships and placements.

Past engagement activity has enabled our students to team with Vattenfall and local government?organisations?to explain the benefits of?wind power?to younger members of the public. These types of activities are critical to the sector and to ensuring that we can deliver the engineers the energy industry needs.

Our Energy Engineering courses are tailored to the sector. Our graduates are 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. As well as developing a strong understanding of key principles in engineering, mechanics, electrical and electronics, students will gain knowledge on more specialised energy topics from their second year.

Throughout your course you will have access to resources from UEA Schools like Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so that your learning is limitless.

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. You will also have optional modules related to environmental aspects like environmental politics and policy making, climate change and modelling of environmental processes. You’ll graduate confident in your knowledge of renewable energy generation – wind turbines, micro-hydro schemes, nuclear power, biofuels and environmental management – and ready to pursue a successful career in the sector.
