Key facts

Developed in partnership with the East of England Energy Group, this course will prepare you for a future career in engineering. As well as being academically rigorous, the course allows you to develop varied skills for a career beyond university thanks to close partnerships with major companies. We take a multidisciplinary approach to our teaching, working closely with UEA’s prestigious schools of Environmental Sciences, Computing Sciences and Mathematics so you can learn from a range of experts.

As an Energy Engineering with Environmental Management student, you will also be educated in the environmental impact of energy engineering and benefit from our long-established expertise in environmental sciences.

Our engineering courses allow you to develop your own career plan, and all have a common first year so you can get to know the subject before focusing on either Energy, Mechanical, Electronic and Electrical, or maintaining a mixed approach.

Overview

Year 1 is aimed at introducing the fundamental principles of all engineering disciplines using energy engineering as a focusThe Energy Engineering Revolution module aims to provide an up to date assessment of the energy industry, using visiting speakers, mini-projects and case studies to address topical issues such as renewable heat incentives, feed-in tariffs and maintenance in the offshore environment. The Engineering Principles module builds knowledge in fluid flow, electricity, structural design and materials. Engineering Practice introduces the design theme and uses  it as a vehicle to explore professional practice and ethical codes of conduct. A range of communication techniques including sketching and drawing skills as well as team working are all taught in an energy context. The two mathematics modules consolidate pre-university knowledge and push it a bit further. The engineering mathematics component complements the theoretical work with estimation challenges and energy data analysis using a range of software.

Year 2  builds on the foundations to explore design codes of practice in more depth and uses renewable energy examples to illustrate advanced principles. For example a basic understanding of wind turbine towers includes considerations of drag-induced overturning forces and foundation stability, as well as the aerodynamics of flow past the turbines. A thorough understanding of micro-hydro schemes is developed by analysing pumps and turbines linked to pipe flow and networks, while the study of grid storage pushes the electricity theme further. The important mathematical theme continues to more advanced material including learning programming skills.

Year 3 includes the important element of your individual project. Your supervisor may make suggestions for suitable topics, but essentially this is your chance to become an expert in the area of energy engineering that fascinates you and in which you are likely to work. Industry is keen to see this in-depth study, as many energy engineering degrees can be somewhat superficial in their coverage. At UEA we aim for both breadth and depth in our teaching.

Themes

Engineering Design

Engineers design things. This is a highly creative process that builds upon a fundamental understanding of fluid flow, material properties, structural behaviour, dynamics of systems and mathematics. But rather than save up all the fun bits until the base theory is complete, you will tackle engineering design challenges from the start of your degree and gradually build up your confidence until by third and fourth year you are capable of completing a detailed design to industry standards.

Health and Safety Risk Management

Engineering is becoming ever safer. Many companies now operate strict health and safety policies using sophisticated risk assessment and management techniques. Identifying risks can also lead to financial opportunities. The culture of safe working begins in first year with laboratory exercises and site visits, before permeating all the design work. The chemical engineering hazard study approach to design is adopted throughout.

Professional Ethics and Commercial Awareness

It is obviously important to understand the technical aspects of your discipline, but this is only half the story. Professional life raises all sorts of ethical dilemmas, from the care that must be taken in checking calculations to the consideration of risks to public health. Often the dilemmas are compounded by the underlying need to make a business profitable. There is a growing interest amongst practising engineers in these important aspects. You will discuss ethical and commercial responsibilities with practising engineers who balance them  during their working lives. By the time you graduate you should have a confident foundation understanding of how industry works, which will allow you to get the most out of your initial training.

Energy Technologies

It is quite likely that you were attracted to energy engineering by the technology involved, whether it was the majestic sweep of a wind turbine or the sheer size of the support vehicles and boats installing them. Or perhaps you are fascinated by the decentralisation of energy supply and the idea of making maximum use of the energy potential in waste appeals to you. Whatever your technical interests there will be something in our degrees for you. Renewable energy technologies from marine to solar are complemented by a thorough understanding of modern conventional technologies such as combined cycle gas turbines or carbon capture to prolong the life of coal. Nuclear power is used as a vehicle to introduce the very important subject of risk assessment, as well as for its important contribution to the energy mix.

Environmental Awareness

Environmental Impact Statements are a key feature of all major energy engineering schemes, but industry is concerned that many engineers attempt to apply them to the end of a design rather than embedding them from the start at every key decision stage. At UEA we are uniquely placed to educate our students on the environmental impact of energy engineering because of our long-established expertise in environmental sciences. Climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and other crucial concepts become second nature to our students. It is possible to investigate this theme through all years of your degree or to develop your mathematical ability further in third and fourth year instead.

Name Code Credits

ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS AND MECHANICS

RESERVED FOR ENGINEERING STUDENTS. This module utilises the mathematical concepts from the Mathematics for Scientists module in an engineering context, before complementing the material with practical mechanics to solve real-world problems. Over the first semester students are introduced to the vocational necessity of estimation in the absence of accurate data through a team-based competition, as well as the practical geometry and numerical methods which can be used when analytical techniques fail. This is supplemented by practical exercises in graphical presentation and data analysis which will contribute to the coursework element of the module. Teaching then concentrates on mechanics in the second semester, encompassing Newton's laws of motion, particle dynamics and conservation laws before a final exam.

ENG-4004Y

ENGINEERING PRACTICE

Engineering Practice prepares students for the financial and ethical considerations of working in the engineering industry as well as starting the creative design theme of the course. Semester 1 begins with a team-based induction activity. The group then studies the historical developments which govern modern design principles, including sustainability. Students produce professional technical drawings and sketches alongside 3D models using CAD software. Learning is supplemented by industrial site visits in both semesters. Semester 2 provides opportunities for students to apply the skills they have learned to a real conceptual design and culminates in an introduction to economics with applications. This module includes important introductions to design, technical report-writing, oral presentations and team-working. Professional ethical principles are introduced using classic design failures as examples. The skills learning autumn term are then brought to bear on a significant conceptual design challenge such as the EWB Engineering for People Design Challenge. The basics of economics round-of the year with the final team-based activity. Scattered throughout are support sessions run by the Careers Service and Librarians.

It provides a hands-on introduction to electronic-electrical engineering, exposes students to a range of energy industry specialists and encourages students to develop their understanding of the UK and global energy mix. In addition to a brief overview of civil engineeringit introduces the basics of structural engineering and fundamental principles that civil and mechanical engineers use (structural frames, bridges, foundations, stresses, mechanisms) putting some of these in context.Permeating the delivery of the above topics isthe development of programming, simulation and practical skills using e.g. Matlab, Simulink, Arduino. # The energy sector calls on engineers from a variety of disciplines when developing new sources of power. This module exposes students to a range of energy industry specialists and encourages students to develop their understanding of the UK and global energy mix, its challenges and future. # Most engineering equipment requires electrical power for its use and in many cases electronic control systems for its operation. This module provides a hands-on introduction to both aspects in preparation for the electronic-electrical theme that continues in second year for all students. # Civil engineers are always required for the construction of engineering facilities, whether it is to house them, to provide load carrying supports or to establish the ground conditions necessary for safe foundations. In addition to a brief overview of civil engineering this module introduces the basics of structural engineering. The way that solid and lattice structures are used to transfer loads is explored and the important topic of engineers' bending theory builds on consideration of actions such as compression, tension, torsion and shear. # Of all the disciplines of engineering mechanical engineeringappearsto be the most versatile. The bulk of the first and second year include fundamental principles that both civil and mechanical engineers use (fluids, structures, thermodynamics, mathematics, dynamics etc.) and this module puts some of these in context. # Permeating the delivery of the above topics is the development of programming and simulation skills using e.g. Matlab, Simulink, and practical skills using breadboard and Arduino.

PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROCESSES IN THE EARTH'S SYSTEM I

The habitability of planet Earth depends on the physical and chemical systems on the planet which control everything from the weather and clim ate to the growth of all living organisms. This module aims to introduce you to some of these key cycles and the ways in which physical and chemical scientists investigate and interpret these systems. The module will lead many of you on to second and third year courses (and beyond) studying these systems in more detail, but even for those of you who choose to study other aspects of environmental sciences a basic knowledge of these systems is central to understanding our planet and how it responds to human pressures. The course has two distinct components, one on the physical study of the environment (Physical Processes: e.g. weather, climate, ocean circulation, etc.) and one on the chemical study (Chemical Processes: weathering, atmospheric pollution, ocean productivity, etc.). During the course of the module the teachers will also emphasise the inter-relationships between these two sections This course is taught in two variants: this module provides a Basic Chemistry introduction for those students who have little or no background in chemistry before coming to UEA (see pre-requisites). This course will run throughout semester 2 involving a mixture of lectures, laboratory practical classes, workshops and a half day field trip.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLITICS AND POLICY MAKING

The most significant obstacles to problem solving are often political, not scientific or technological. This module examines the emergence and processes of environmental politics. It analyses these from different theoretical perspectives, particularly theories of power and public policy making. The module is focused on contemporary examples of politics and policy making at UK, EU and international levels. The module supports student-led learning by enabling students to select (and develop their own theoretical interpretations of) 'real world' examples of politics. Assessment is via seminar presentations and a 4000 word case study essay. The module assumes no prior knowledge of politics.

ENGINEERING INDUSTRIAL PROJECT 1

This module provides an opportunity to gain valuable credit-bearing industrial experience. It comprises a 10-week minimum placement over the summer vacation and submission of inception, interim and final reports which are presented at an assessed viva in the autumn term. This module replaces a 20-credit option module in the following academic year. . Where possible a distinct project element of the placement will be identified for which you have overall responsibility. The main objectives of the placement are to develop your understanding of real engineering industry, the importance of risk and commercial awareness, and how sustainability in modern engineering practice. The module comprises a 10-week minimum placement over the summer vacation and submission of inception, interim and final reports which are presented at an assessed viva in the autumn term. To ensure that this contributes to your degree and to provide enough time to complete the reports, this module replaces your 20-credit option module in the following academic year. A learning plan at the beginning sets clear aims and objectives which satisfy professional accreditation and are consistent with the UEA Code of Practice on work-based learning. You will maintain a log-book and complete quarterly reports, as you will when you graduate and progress to chartered status. You will have an academic and industry supervisor. Although the Inception and Interim Reports are formative it is absolutely essential that students take them seriously. A student who fails to complete a satisfactory interim report will be removed from the module before the start of the autumn term and will have to choose to replace it with an option module from either Environmental Sciences or Mathematics. If you are interested in the module it will be important to take advantage of opportunities to find a placement during the spring term before the placement.

MODELLING ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSES

The aim of the module is to show how environmental problems may be solved from the initial problem, to mathematical formulation and numerical solution. Problems will be described conceptually, then defined mathematically, then solved numerically via computer programming. The module consists of lectures on numerical methods and computing practicals (using Matlab); the practicals being designed to illustrate the solution of problems using the methods covered in lectures. The module will guide students through the solution of a model of an environmental process of their own choosing. The skills developed in this module are highly valued by prospective employers.

THE CARBON CYCLE AND CLIMATE CHANGE

What do you know about the drivers of climate change? Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the greenhouse gas that has, by far, the greatest impact on climate change, but how carbon cycles through the Earth is complex and not fully understood. Predicting future climate or defining 'dangerous' climate change is therefore challenging. In this module you will learn about the atmosphere, ocean and land components of the carbon cycle. We cover urgent global issues such as ocean acidification and how to get off our fossil fuel 'addiction', as well as how to deal with climate denialists.
