Course Summary

This programme is an advanced MSc course in renewable energy engineering, with an emphasis on the design, analysis and implementation of renewable energy projects. Designed to help you develop critical understanding, the course will equip you with the engineering knowledge and practical skills necessary to develop and implement creative solutions to engineering problems encountered in renewable energy capture and conversion, system design and analysis, project development and implementation. You will use lab and field-testing facilities for measuring and monitoring performance of different renewable energy systems, such as wind turbines, photovoltaic power systems and heat pumps.

Graduates from this course will find employment in the growing renewable energy sector as a system engineer, design engineer, project engineer, energy consultant and in energy management and would eventually aspire to lucrative director-level positions in the renewable energy sector. Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
