MSc in Energy and Environmental Engineering
Energy and the environment are increasingly taking their place as a major issue in today's world. With this qualification, you'll build on your current credentials in the field, or take the first step into this vital industry. The course emphasises renewable energy techniques and theories, while also addressing the scientific background associated with sustainable construction and renewable and alternative energies. As well as advanced engineering principles and practices, you'll learn to effectively manage projects and develop your research skills. You'll be given practical experience in applying these principles to the investigation and development of renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind and wave energy.
