Course Summary

This course is delivered by the Faculty of Science – which houses an impressive base of engineering knowledge, particularly in the Schools of Mathematics, Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Computing Sciences and Chemistry. We’ve developed this MSc programme in partnership with industry and employers through close collaboration with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) – aiming to address the national and regional shortage of high-calibre qualified graduates in the field of engineering. You’ll master fundamental energy and electrical engineering principles alongside specific modules in wind, oil and gas – plus options to focus on conventional energy or future developments. The option in environmental risk assessment exploits our links with the word-renowned School of Environmental Sciences. Ultimately you’ll recognize the long-term goal of renewable energy alongside the broader reality of a sustainable energy mix. Throughout your course there will be many opportunities to mix with practicing professional engineers during modules, at trade events, local branch meetings and on project work. Your most significant project will be your dissertation, where you’ll have the chance to do the practical element whilst on placement within the energy sector. Upon graduation this enhanced experience puts you one step ahead of other graduates. Employers have identified that there’s a shortage of engineers in the energy sector, so graduates from our programme are in high demand and many are already in key positions. We have been accredited by the Energy Institute (EI) as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. And our affiliate membership with the EI provides you with free student membership and a free magazine.

Modules

Wind energy is the main provider of renewable energy and the source that is receiving the majority of investment, making its study vital to energy engineering. This module begins by examining the kinetic energy of moving air and the design of wind turbines to extract this energy. Different turbine designs are briefly examined and comparisons made of their effectiveness. Issues regarding placement of wind turbines and practical considerations are discussed and include data collection of wind speeds for possible wind farm sites using optimal spacing of turbines. The focus is on developing Excel skills and Technical Report-writing skills using wind energy as the context.
