This new MSc programme combines investment in engineering with existing and substantial expertise across the Faculty of Science in the fields of applied mathematics, energy resources, environmental management and electronic engineering. The programme has been developed in partnership with industry and employers through close collaboration with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR), aiming to address the national and regional shortage of high-calibre qualified graduates in the field of Energy Engineering.

The Faculty of Science houses an impressive base of engineering knowledge, particularly in the Schools of Mathematics, Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Computing Sciences and Chemistry. We are internationally renowned for our research and teaching in many relevant fields, including Applied Mathematics, Computer Systems Engineering, Geophysical Sciences and Physical Oceanography and Physical Chemistry, to name but a few. This existing expertise will ensure that this MSc programme equips students with training in the fundamentals of engineering, along with its application to the energy industry.

All students will be required to undertake a substantial engineering project as part of the MSc programme, and it is anticipated that many students will have the opportunity to undertake the practical elements of this project in an industrial setting within the energy sector. Accreditation has been awarded by the Energy Institute to allow graduates partial exemption towards CEng status.
This programme will offer excellent career prospects to graduates. Employers have identified a shortage of engineers in the energy sector, so high calibre graduates from this programme will be in demand.

“As a locally based company that employs engineering graduates to MSc level, we are delighted by the new courses which will be available through UEA. This is a great example of industry and academia working together through the Skills for Energy programme over the past three years to help design and deliver a Masters and Bachelors course to meet the needs of our regional industry. In the past we have always had to take graduates who have qualified elsewhere, unable to recruit from those trained within our local area. Now we have the opportunity to sponsor our BSc level graduates to complete MSc courses, without the need for this to be undertaken with Universities much further afield.”
Paul Chilvers, Regional Manager, ODE

“The East of England has a unique and fast-growing energy mix. We have leading-edge businesses in offshore gas, nuclear and renewables and a heritage of hands-on work in marine, agricultural and engineering sectors. For those who can add management skills to this tradition of hard work, the future is bright. What better place than the Energy Region to acquire these skills?”
Douglas Nunn, Managing Director, Fraser Offshore Ltd

“The UEA Masters and Bachelors programmes are just what the energy industry in the East of England needs. Because of the involvement of the industry from the outset of the design of the courses and support through their delivery, the results should be far more applicable to the industry’s needs and what we need in the graduates that we employ. They will underpin long term career opportunities by increasing the ability to work across the energy sectors in an area where the industry is vibrant and growing.”
Blair Ainslie, MD, Seajacks (and Chairman of Skills for Energy)

“The development of a local degree programme forms a key milestone for the energy industry within the region. It is our belief that through the diverse range of energy supply and ongoing investment within the region, the East of England can form an internationally recognised ‘hub’ for future energy production and storage.
This programme forms a key part of the region’s ability to attract, develop and recruit the skills needed for the next generation of Oil and Gas production, providing opportunities for local people and organisations. Without such a programme, these goals would be harder to achieve”.
John Sewell, Operations Manager, Perenco (and Vice Chairman of Skills for Energy)

Entry Requirements Degree Subject: This programme is open to students with a degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject, which includes significant mathematical content. The minimum mathematical qualification will be A-level mathematics (or equivalent). Degree Classification: Good undergraduate degree (minimum 2.1 or equivalent) Alternative Qualifications: Entry with other qualifications or experience will be considered if the necessary mathematical and technical expertise has been acquired elsewhere (e.g. relevant industrial experience). Students for whom English is a Foreign language

We welcome applications from students whose first language is not English. To ensure such students benefit from postgraduate study, we require evidence of proficiency in English. Our usual entry requirements are as follows:

  • IELTS: 6.5 (minimum 6.0 in all components)
  • TOEFL: Internet-based score of 88 (minimum 18 in listening, 21 speaking, 19 writing and 20 reading)
  • PTE (Pearson): 62 (minimum 55 in all components)

Test dates should be within two years of the course start date.

Other tests such as TOEIC and the Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English are also accepted by the university. Please check with the Admissions Office for further details including the scores or grades required.

INTO UEA and INTO UEA London run pre-sessional courses which can be taken prior to the start of your course. For further information and to see if you qualify please contact intopre-sessional@uea.ac.uk (INTO UEA Norwich) or pseuealondon@into.uk.com (INTO UEA London).

  • A Unique Partnership with Industry
    Our degree programmes have been set up in close collaboration with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR). The Skills for Energy sub-group of EEEGR provides energy engineering students with industry-driven case studies, site visits, on-site lectures, breakfast meetings and sponsored equipment.
  • Teaching Excellence
    The quality of teaching within all Schools in the Faculty of Science was rated very highly in recent external assessment exercises, as reflected in our consistently high National Student Survey results. We continuously listen to feedback from students about how to improve our courses.
  • Research Quality
    The Faculty of Sciences already has an excellent reputation for conducting world-class interdisciplinary research. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), all of our science departments were rated as having world-leading research and over 93 per cent of our research outputs were assessed as being of international quality.
