The future security of our energy supply is one of the most pressing issues society faces today. This course prepares future energy engineers for the challenge. It's your chance to get real-life practical industrial experience in this rapidly-growing field, and work your way towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status faster. With the support of our highly skilled teaching staff, you'll gain the contemporary technical design, power generation and operations skills you need to increase energy efficiency and further develop renewable sources of energy. This course is firmly industry-led, meaning you'll graduate with the skills and knowledge you need to engineer a sustainable future. With the MEng, you'll get all the benefits of our BEng programme with an extra year to deepen and embed your knowledge, further your real-world, hands-on industrial experience (and therefore improve your employment prospects on graduation) and take you closer to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
Energy engineering is a growing discipline and graduates are in greater demand than ever, which means your options within the sector are varied.
Year 1: Compulsory modules; Analytical methods, Introductory mechanics, Electrical principles, Drawing and CAD, Engineering Applications, Manufacturing engineering.

Preston’s such a lovely student city – there’s something on each night and the prices are amazing, it’s really geared toward students. Warehouse and The Ship Inn saw the most of my nights out in town. It’s not really a bustling metropolis, but less distractions = more work done! And if you’re wanting a huge night, Liverpool’s about half an hour on the train and is amazing. My course is great, with fascinating, empathetic teachers who really support and encourage us, and the facilities are top notch. The Student Union is also incredibly supportive, and they always have time for us.

Honestly I could not recommend UCLan anymore than I am. I wholeheartedly believe that the lecturers are there to help you learn and grow as a person rather to just keep up rankings. You are made to feel like an individual and not just another student.
I think uclan is a really good choice of uni for a take of students. They allow room for independent learning and have an incredible wealth of recourses while also offering the help anyone may need and hubs for information whenever you might need it.
