**About This Course**

Deepen your knowledge and understanding of engineering and fast-track your journey to becoming a chartered engineer with our four-year MEng degree.

You’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your course. You’ll get a taste of the many career paths engineering will?open up?to you, through mentors and role-models, site visits and short-term internships and placements. We actively encourage you to develop your networking abilities, learning to make the most of our industrial contacts. You’ll also have the option of participating in SELECT and UEA’s Engineering internship schemes to enhance your studies.

**Overview**

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 can tailor your course to your interests, keeping the broad-based approach or focusing more closely on Mechanical, Electronic or Electrical engineering. You will have access to experience and resources from across UEA Schools such as Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, ensuring that your learning is limitless.

For your first three years you’ll follow the same programme as BEng Engineering. In your final year you will focus on a multidisciplinary design project. This major team-based project will mark the culmination of your study and will encourage you to explore the breadth of your learning in partnership with an industrial project. You’ll be given a real brief to work from, and you’ll be encouraged to undertake site visits so that you can develop proposals, which you’ll then present to professional engineers.

We produce pioneering graduates who are capable of supporting a changing industry through their intellectual flexibility. Our programmes promote the development of a new breed of highly versatile engineers, possessing the capacity to find solutions to society’s biggest challenges.

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 team-based design project required for Engineering Council accreditation. This will give you the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice and address and solve a real-world problem.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

This is the percentage of final-year students at this university who were "definitely" or "mostly" satisfied with their course. We've analysed this figure against other universities so you can see whether this is high, medium or low.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), for undergraduate students only.

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

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?
