The University of East Anglia offers courses at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level in Energy Engineering with Environmental Management. With the support of local and national energy industry partners, the University of East Anglia is emerging as a major player in the energy education arena offering students the opportunity at an institution that is in the World Top 100 (Leiden Ranking 2013), in the UK top 10 for research citations (Times Higher Education 2013) and is the Number 1 for Student Experience in the UK (Times Higher Student Experience Survey 2013).
The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Engineering.
If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.
Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys).
Welcome to Engineering, which is housed within the School of Mathematics. We are very pleased you have decided to study with us and we look forward to working with you, ensuring that you have all the support you need to be successful.
Studying Engineering is a career choice but you can take your time to decide which aspects of Engineering you want to focus on, using the many opportunities we provide. Through real-world teamwork exercises in the autumn term you meet practising engineers in an informal setting. Our relationships with professional institutions provide free membership and access to their on-line resources. Site visits and evening branch meetings of the institutions or the Norwich Engineering Society can provide easy ways to develop networking skills.
The students who gain the most from their time at UEA not only work hard but also get involved with some of the myriad activities on offer at the University; for example, we really encourage you to engage with your student society ENGSOC. It is going to be a busy time and we hope you will look back fondly on your time a UEA as one of the very best times of your life.
A huge amount of information will be given to you, including that on this website about your induction programme. Try to look over all of it, and above all ask questions if you are confused – the staff and students in the School are friendly and approachable, and will be happy to answer.
We hope you will find your time here enjoyable, challenging and rewarding and look forward to meeting you in the next few weeks.

Steps to Success - Getting started in your School of Study
You will have received an email from UEA confirming your place. Follow the links to register online and set up your IT account, username and password.
Go to E:Vision to view your personalised timetable information. There will be UEA wide events for all students as well as our School events and activities.
Go to the SCI Student Zone.This is our area for all Science students to find common and School only information. It is an important reference area not only in your first few weeks but also during all your time here. Right now, your School areas on the SCI Student Zone will also have more information about any essential or recommended reading for your course (if needed before you arrive) or if you have optional module choices to make in your first year, there will be some more information about that. Most Schools have a ‘New Student Information’ area but do take time to browse the other tabs, including the general Science Student Information tab.
Follow these instructions once you have registered online:
- Go to https://portal.uea.ac.uk/
- Select BLACKBOARD from the 3 orange buttons towards the top of the screen
- Type in your UEA username and password, and select Sign In
- At the top right of the screen select SCI Student Zone
Double check you have done all of above! Keep regularly checking your timetable and School Student Zones up to and during arrival week as sometimes things are added or rooms can change.
