Course Summary

Gain the theoretical and practical skills to explore the growing field of renewable energy technologies

Overview

Renewable energy technologies have become an important part of energy production. Strong initiatives and investments from the public and private sectors have made this a rapidly growing field and created further career opportunities in the sector.

This is one of the few courses offered at Masters level which not only encompasses renewable energy technologies but also complements with the essential related elements of renewable energy finance and environmental law.

These elements touch on financial analytical tools, project structuring, finance and management in renewable energy, while the law element will consider legal framework impacting upon renewable energy provision.

Course details

The course will extend your skills into various renewable energy technologies such as wind, solar, hydro, biomass etc.

Study renewable energy capture, energy storage, energy audit and life-cycle analysis, as well as learning the concept of the system, design, development and applications.

The course is accredited by the Energy Institute UK. Combined with a suitable accredited undergraduate degree, the MSc degree would then satisfy the academic requirements of the UK Engineering Council for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Assessments

Assessments will primarily be in the form of written coursework submissions and examinations. Other form of assessments are presentation, demonstration, class test and dissertation viva.
