Energy Engineering

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. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you’ll take on small design projects to gain a grounding in engineering mathematics and principles, supported by a broad introduction to energy from practising engineers. Engineering Studies will allow you to study a number of more focused engineering disciplines. Introductions to mechanical, electronic and electrical and energy engineering are delivered through fieldwork, hands-on component assembly, CADCAM and case studies provided by visiting industrialists. **Year 2** Year two will build on the foundations of your first year, exploring design codes of practice in greater depth and using renewable energy examples to illustrate advanced principles. For example, your basic understanding of wind turbine towers will not only encompass drag-induced forces and foundation stability, but also the aerodynamics of airflow past the turbines. You’ll develop a thorough understanding of micro-hydro schemes by analysing pumps and turbines linked to pipe flow and networks. The study of grid storage will push your understanding of electricity further and your mathematical knowledge will be developed through more advanced material, including programming skills. **Year 3** Your individual project will be a major focus of your final year. Your supervisor may suggest suitable topics, but essentially this is your chance to become an expert in the area of energy engineering that fascinates you most – and in which you are likely to work. Your exploration of your in-depth study will be one of the areas of learning that really differentiates you from other energy engineering graduates. At UEA, we aim for both depth and breadth in our teaching – and it shows in our graduates. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
