Course Summary

The Institute for Energy Systems (IES) helps shape tomorrow's difficult energy decisions in decarbonising society. It continues a long line of world leading innovation by Edinburgh researchers, including the 1970s 'Duck' wave energy converter, invented by Stephen Salter - now Emeritus Professor of Engineering Design. Our research covers all aspects of the low carbon energy chain: resource modelling, impact of climate change, wind, wave, tidal & solar energy, electrical power conversion, energy storage, carbon capture, biofuels and delivery into the electrical network. In addition, we have established a low carbon vehicle group developing more efficient internal combustion engines.

An MSc by Research is based on a research project tailored to a candidate's interests. It lasts one year full time or two years part time. The project can be a shorter alternative to an MPhil or PhD, or a precursor to either - including the option of an MSc project expanding into MPhil or doctorate work as it evolves. It can also be a mechanism for industry to collaborate with the School.
