The MSc in Sustainable Energy will enable you to join the new generation of professionals at the forefront of the energy revolution. The world is becoming acutely aware of the urgent need to resolve the many issues associated with energy consumption and climate change. The limited availability of fossil fuels and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions call for fundamental changes in the global energy landscape.
The MSc in Sustainable Energy is a broad-based, highly adaptable programme, based on practical and fieldwork experience. Students study sustainable energy from the perspective of business, science and technology and learn about a wide range of renewable technologies that suit different regions and societies.
