Course Summary

This MSc will equip you with the advanced knowledge and skills to develop a successful career in the rapidly growing renewable engineering sector. A choice of study routes enables you to specialise in developing the state-of-the-art technical skills required to design renewable energy systems, or to focus on managing renewable engineering projects and systems. Ranked in the UK top 5 for mechanical engineering, Cranfield offers a unique, postgraduate-only environment, unique engineering-scale facilities for the development of efficient renewable energy technologies with low CO2 emissions and a teaching team with extensive experience of solving real world renewable energy challenges.

Who is it for?

This course is designed for engineering, maths or science graduates who wish to develop a successful and rewarding career in the renewable energy sector. It will equip you with the multidisciplinary skills required to design, optimise and evaluate the technical and economic viability of renewable energy schemes. The engineering route will provide you with the state-of-the-art technical skills required to design renewable energy systems, including Finite Element Analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and technology lifecycle management (TPLM). Alternatively, you can specialise in managing renewable energy projects and systems; focusing on topics such as health and safety and environment; energy entrepreneurship and asset management.

Your career

With the current global focus on developing low carbon energy production and renewable energy technologies, you can expect to be highly sought after by employers. Equipped with the expertise to analyse current and future energy needs and to design and implement appropriate solutions, a wide range of careers are open to you, as a professional scientist or engineer across the full breadth of industrial and public sector organisations involved in renewable energy.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.

Modules

This module aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to design advanced maintenance, monitoring and asset management strategies for complex engineering systems through the lifecycle.
