Course Summary:
East Anglia is a major region for energy engineering, and you'll feel the benefit of our connections with local industry right from the start of your three-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 which are critical to the sector and to ensuring we can deliver the engineers the energy industry needs today, and for 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, 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** Year two will build on the foundations of your first year, exploring design codes of practice in greater depth and using renewable energy examples to illustrate advanced principles. For example, your basic understanding of wind turbine towers will not only encompasses drag-induced forces and foundation stability, but also the aerodynamics of airflow past the turbines. You'll develop a thorough understanding of micro-hydro schemes by analysing pumps and turbines linked to pipe flow and networks. While the study of grid storage will push your understanding of electricity further. And your mathematical knowledge will be developed through more advanced material, including programming skills. **Year 3** Your individual project will be a major focus of your final year. Working under the guidance of our academic staff, this is essentially your chance to become an expert in the area of energy engineering and environmental management that fascinates you most. Examples of previous projects include one linked to the contentious issues of fracking in the UK, as well as a study of floating offshore wind turbines. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.

UEA has a great atmosphere which makes both studying and socialising easy. The facilities on campus range from the library to the bar and from shops to accommodation which means that it is possible to live on campus without venturing away but at the same time the city of Norwich is a lovely place to explore. The university had the largest natural environment in the UK which includes a lake and woodlands which are relaxing to explore.

    The nightlife could be better in terms of more diverse music, but the lcr is enough for most people due to convenience. Lots of activities and sport to get into. Wish only I had time to do them all!

    I would thoroughly recommend UEA because I've had such a great time here so far!
