Subject

General or integrated 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. Youll benefit from our connections with local industry right from the start of your three-year course. Youll 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. Well actively encourage to develop your networking abilities, learning to make the most of your exposure to our industrial contacts. Youll also have the option to participate in SELECT, UEAs engineering internship scheme, from your first year.**Course Structure****Year 1**In your first year youll 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 youll be given the flexibility to change your degree path based on what youve 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, youll 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 well 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.Were keen to ensure you graduate industry-ready, so we embed project management skills modules throughout your final year. Well 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. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**

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 a 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 base on your own engineering interests.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

As a mixed subject within engineering where students get a chance to learn from a range of disciplines, this course isn't taken by as many people as some of the more specialist disciplines. Demand for engineering skills is high, though, and so unemployment rates are low and the average starting salary was a very healthy £26,400 for 2015 graduates. Graduates are able to specialise enough to be working in jobs in engineering — especially in design and development - as well as engineering project management. IT and management consultancy were some of the more common jobs outside engineering. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to a MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.
