Course Summary

Marine wind, wave and tidal energy are key elements of UK, European and global renewable energy roadmaps. Begin your voyage to being a part of this vital transformative development by studying on the UK’s first MSc Marine Renewable Energy programme. Building on our international reputation for marine research and teaching, along with regional and national initiatives, this distinctive degree focuses on the growing marine renewable energy sector.

Key features

  • Be at the forefront of the emerging field of offshore renewable energy at a time when such expertise is increasingly sought after.
  • Benefit from University and government aspirations to develop the southwest as a centre for ORE and as embodied by PRIMaRE and the Universities leading role in Supergen.
  • Develop a whole systems vision through this cross-discipinary MSc programme comprising expertise from engineering, marine science, economics, law and policy.
  • Gain through access to existing ORE relevant facilities in the University: e.g. the COAST laboratories, the Marine Station, the High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster.
  • Capitalise on ongoing and proposed University of Plymouth research as funded by RCUK, Interreg, Horizon2020 and other funding streams.
  • Benefit from our research team’s expertise – our staff achieved ratings of ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ in the UK Government’s most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).
  • Live and study in ‘Britain’s Ocean City’, with easy access to businesses and the marine environment, this is an ideal location to study offshore renewables.

Modules

This module provides an introduction to the engineering, technological, environmental, socioeconomic and legal issues relevant to the development and exploitation of marine renewable energy. The relative influence of the various factors in determining the success of specific sites is assessed and the current barriers to future development identified.
