Course Summary

Overview of the Programme

To meet the 2050 carbon reduction targets to control climate change, member states of the EU have signed legally binding targets to transition from traditional fossil fuel energy sources to renewable and sustainable energies. This MSc programme offers a graduate a chance to access this exciting, dynamic and highly innovative field.

The programme provides an up-to-date overview of all the major renewable energy sources. This includes the engineering skills associated with selecting, designing and installing the apparatus to capture, as well as store, convert and transfer it into useful forms.

The programme also looks at the engineering aspects of clean energy, energy economics and markets. The cost/ benefit/ tariff/risk analysis of renewables is compared with traditional fossil fuel and nuclear energy sources. Socio-economic, energy security and political issues are addressed as well as environmental factors of different energy sources.

The future of renewable energy will rely on innovative forward-thinking businesses, politicians, engineers and managers and as such this programme also encourages creativity and entrepreneurship to produce solutions to real-world problems.
