Providing energy for human activity is probably the greatest challenge facing engineers today. Whilst the energy industry is centred on large scale electrical power generation and distribution, it also includes effective use of power by the end user, micro generation schemes and combined heat and power systems. This course provides you with a good grounding in both electrical and mechanical principles, excellent professional skills and a sound understanding of business. We offer you the opportunity to develop skills in a range of power generation technologies including nuclear, wind, tidal and solar, in addition to more traditional fossil fuels. We bridge the electrical and mechanical subject areas to provide you with knowledge and skills that will maximise your career potential within the increasingly important energy industry. We strongly recommend that you take the option of a placement year. You’ll develop your confidence and greatly enhance your CV.Course contentThe course has been designed by drawing on the strengths of the Electrical and Electronic and the Mechanical and Automotive subject groups within the Department of Engineering and Technology. The core themes of Electrical and Mechanical knowledge are developed in parallel with design, management and business skills. The course is designed to take four years to BEng(Hons) level and five years to MEng level, the third year in both cases being an industrial placement.Learning experienceSpecialist knowledge is typically delivered using a lecture format combined with directed student centred learning. This knowledge is reinforced and skills are developed using seminars, practical work and project activity. Projects may be individual or carried out in groups. Assessment is by assignments, laboratory activity, examinations, in-class tests and presentations.IndividualityThe MEng course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and allows you to apply for Chartered Engineer status early in your career.
