Careers

Employer-valued skills

The MSc in Renewable Energy Engineering has been designed to include the knowledge and skills that potential employers in the energy sector have told us they require.

The UK’s commitment to expansion of renewable energy is likely to mean a high level of investment in the sector in the next decade. The adoption of the UK’s microgeneration tariff in 2009, the Green Deal in 2013, the phased adoption of the Renewable Heat Incentive from 2011-2014 and introduction of Contracts for Difference in 2014, suggests continued strong support for rapid expansion of renewable energy in the UK.

National and international job opportunities

Internationally, many other countries are making similar investments with major industrial nations including the US, India and China investing heavily in renewable generation. This investment will create broad opportunities for those seeking to work in the sector, both nationally and internationally.

Modules

Starting with a background in current energy mix, the challenges of cutting carbon emissions and the barriers to new energy technologies this module will cover a number of renewable energy technologies from their fundamental operational principles to the latest developments. It will explore design considerations for project development and operations and maintenance. Wind, solar, marine and renewable heating will be explored in detail. Hydro power, geothermal and conventional energy will also be covered.
