Engineering with a Year in Industry

Engineering at UEA was established through the demand of local industry. This connection permeates the design and delivery of all our programmes – and makes our students’ learning experiences all the richer for it. You’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your course. We’ll give you a taste of the many career paths engineering will open up to you, through role-models, site visits and opportunities for short-term internships and placements. We’ll actively encourage to develop your networking abilities, and to make the most of your exposure to our industrial contacts. On this course you will spend your third year working in industry, allowing you to gain experience and insight that’s highly valued by future employers, putting you one step ahead of other graduates. 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. And 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. If you achieve 60% or above in your second year you may be eligible to transfer onto our four year MEng Engineering programme. And if you want to take advantage of the flexible ways in which UEA will connect you with industry, you could also take a 10-week placement in the summer of your second year. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third year on industrial placement, working for an organisation related to your chosen engineering discipline. You’ll then return to UEA to complete your degree in the fourth year. During your placement year you’ll gain invaluable real-world skills and experience, while also making contacts through which you can hopefully further your career once you’ve graduated. **Year 4** 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. 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.
