Subject

Energy engineering

**About This Course**

This course will help you train to be a future leader in the energy sector. Wind turbines, nuclear power stations and biofuels are becoming increasingly widespread, and at UEA we aim to produce Energy Engineering graduates with the capacity and expertise to support their design and construction.

Our integrated Master’s course will help you understand the technological and digital developments that will shape the energy industry of the future. And you’ll be given integrated learning opportunities from the outset that often reflect a real industrial context, supporting the development of your soft and hard engineering knowledge and skills.

In your final year you’ll have the opportunity to put everything you’ve learned into practice through a major team-based 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.

**Overview**

East Anglia is a major region for energy engineering, and you’ll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of this four-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 these are critical to the sector and to ensuring that we can deliver the engineers the energy industry needs, both today and in 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. We work closely with other UEA Schools including Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics, so your learning is informed by a range of expertise.

For those wishing to pursue Chartered Engineer status, this course is accredited by the Energy Institute.

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 major design project with students from a variety of disciplines where you will work as part of a team. This will give you the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice.

What are graduates doing after six months?

This is what graduates told us they were doing (and earning), shortly after completing their course. We've crunched the numbers to show you if these immediate prospects are high, medium or low, compared to those studying this subject/s at other universities.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Want to make good money from the word go? This is the degree for you! The UK has had a shortage of chemical engineers for a while now so starting salaries are very good. In fact, across the UK, only doctors and dentists bettered the average starting salary for chemical engineering graduates, with an average starting salary of around £28,000. Key sectors for chemical engineers last year included the petrochemicals, food, nuclear, pharmaceuticals, materials and consultancy industries. Their skills set also means that the finance industry likes graduates from these degrees, so there are options if you don't fancy engineering as a career. Most graduates take a longer course that leads to an MEng — which is what you need to take if you want to be a Chartered Engineer. Chemical engineers are also more likely than other engineers to take doctorates and go into research roles, so if you want to take an engineering subject but fancy a research job, this might be a good subject to take.

Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF):

We've received this information from the Department for Education, via Ucas. This is how the university as a whole has been rated for its quality of teaching: gold silver or bronze. Note, not all universities have taken part in the TEF.

Have a question about this info? Learn more here

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).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

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?
