Course Summary

This programme aims to prepare students with science backgrounds to develop unique expertise in the fundamentals of energy and the environment, their applications for the benefit of humankind, and the ability to stay abreast of the field of sustainable energy engineering. The programme structure is designed to appeal to students with sciences or mathematics backgrounds, and is modular in format. The content of the programme includes a compulsory Engineering Methods module in the first semester, which aims to introduce and develop engineering techniques for students with varied backgrounds. Other than these modules students will be taking specialist energy engineering modules that are being developed for the MSc. This will bolster our current offering, but will also allow these students to become specialists in their field.

Several high performance computing clusters owned by the university support a full spectrum of computational research. Our well equipped laboratories include a wide range of IC engines, heat transfer facilities, wind tunnels, an anechoic chamber, a UK CueSim Flight Simulator and France-Price Induction Jet engine test bench, and energy materials synthesis and characterisation labs. support Systems, Aerodynamics and Propulsion research. Nanotechnology research is further supported by the facilities and expertise provided by Nano force, a company directly associated with the School. The methods of assessment are coursework and formal examinations. Many courses will include continuous assessment so that some or all of the work you do during the course counts towards the final mark.
