Engineering at UEA is built on strong links with industry. Employers value our emphasis on multi-disciplinary working, transferable skills, and independent thinking.

Engineering covers a huge range of skills and disciplines, so we make sure our students are trained in everything from mathematics to managing risk. We’ve got a great track record of getting our graduates employed, thanks to our vocational and diverse teaching.

We not only develop the skills you need to make a great engineer, but we also introduce you to employers and working engineers at every stage. You’ll be exposed to real-world scenarios, get the chance to regularly meet industry professionals, and explore innovative technology first-hand on numerous site visits.

In fact, thanks to our great industry links, we've been shortlisted for a National Undergraduate Employability (NUE) Award for 'Best Collaboration between a University and Employer'. Our extensive collaboration with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) has gained recognition as one of the 'most effective and influential collaborations [...] between a university and employer to offer students additional employability skills and opportunities'.
