Integrated Masters with a Year Abroad

You spend Year 4 working in industry, gaining valuable skills and experience – while you earn. The industrial placement is usually organised during the third year and taken in Year 4. This year is fully assessed and counts towards your final degree result; it therefore requires the successful completion of academic assignments, a continuous log and a final report.

Integrated Masters with an Industrial Placement

You will spend Year 4 studying overseas at a university of your choice. During this year, you will follow a programme of study that will be agreed between yourself and the School prior to your departure. You will take all assessments set by the host university while you are overseas, for which marks will be awarded and a final transcript released.

Fees and funding

UK/EU: £9,250

Overseas: £16,000

About the course

Employability is one of the key goals of our Electrical, Electronic and Energy Engineering MEng degree, putting you in a strong position to enter the engineering industry – where talented graduates are highly sought-after. It builds on the University of Hull’s reputation for outstanding engineering programmes and equips you with the advanced interdisciplinary knowledge and technical skills required for designers of renewable and other energy systems.

There are three options available for studying Electrical, Electronic and Energy Engineering at Hull. You can choose to study the four-year programme or boost your employability further by opting for one of the five-year courses. Students who complete the five-year programme have the opportunity to study abroad or earn while they learn on an industrial placement in Year 4, before returning to complete the final year.

This degree has a major focus on teaching practical skills. We offer state-of-the-art workshops, specialist computing facilities and teaching and project laboratories. Your career prospects are enhanced by the University’s unique location within the Yorkshire and Humber region. The ‘Energy Estuary’ is rapidly emerging as Europe’s renewable energy capital, with engineering giant Siemens and partner Associated British Ports investing £310 million in a wind turbine production facility at Green Port Hull. Meanwhile, Vivergo Fuels’ plant near the city is set to become the country’s largest producer of bioethanol.
