Engineering

All engineering courses within the School share an integrated programme structure during the first year to demonstrate the potential breadth of the discipline. After this year you can elect to tailor your 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. You’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your three-year course. You’ll get a taste of the many career paths engineering will open up to you, through meeting role-models, site visits and opportunities for short-term internships and placements. We’ll actively encourage to develop your networking abilities, learning to make the most of your exposure to our industrial contacts. You’ll also have the option to participate in SELECT, UEA’s engineering internship scheme, from your first year. **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. After these introductions you’ll be given the flexibility to change your degree path based on what you’ve learnt. You can choose your preferred path at any point before the start of your second semester or, with appropriate module choices, further delay the decision until the end of second year. **Year 2** In addition to the core material that builds on themes from the first year, you’ll be exposed to electronic and electrical engineering, together with the fundamentals of mechanics, dynamics and vibration that are essential to mechanical engineers. Teaching in Engineering Principles and Design will carry the thread of design through to your final year. Prior to entering final year, you may want to take advantage of the flexible ways in which UEA will connect you with industry, by taking a 10-week placement in the summer of your second year, which will replace an optional module in your third year. If you achieve 60% or above in your second year you may be eligible to transfer onto our four year MEng Engineering programme. **Year 3** In your final year of study we’ll encourage you to take ownership of elements of your learning through the exploration of a detailed project, based on your specific interests. This could involve experimentation, research, practical construction, circuit assembly or computer modelling. This experience will help you define your path towards a specific career. When an opportunity presents itself, we will link these individual projects to explore real engineering problems. We’re keen to ensure you graduate industry-ready, so we embed project management skills modules throughout your final year. We’ll also give you a greater understanding of business, as well as commercial risks and opportunities. Alongside these business modules, our engineering teaching will focus on stress analysis and design, and control systems, which provide further insight into more specialised fields of engineering. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
