Program Description

Sustainable Energy Systems MSc

London South Bank University

Overview

This course is for engineers who wish to develop their skills and knowledge in energy systems that will meet future energy needs. Such energy systems will need to be designed and implemented in accordance with principles of sustainability.

The course content is designed to be relevant to international, national and local government energy policies and strategies, and will be of value to anyone working in an energy related engineering discipline. The primary focus of the course is for graduates in building services, mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering.

The aims of the course are to:

  • Present and take forward arguments for sustainability in the design and implementation of energy delivery systems
  • Provide you with a broad basis of advanced understanding in the technologies that deliver high quality energy services with minimum environmental impact
  • Design appropriate decentralised energy delivery systems, based on a range of criteria including environment, cost and engineering potential
  • Develop your understanding of policy, market and institutional factors that promote or constrain innovation.

Accreditations

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CISBE) and the Energy Institute as masters further learning to meet the academic requirements of becoming a Chartered Engineer (with a suitable first degree).

The course is accredited on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Modules

An indicative list of topics covered on this course are:

  • Renewable energy technologies 1
  • Renewable energy technologies 2
  • Energy resource and use analysis
  • Electrical power
  • Sustainable refrigeration
  • Environmental management
  • Energy engineering project

Employability

The emergence of sustainable energy technologies, together with targets for implementation, mean that specialist engineers will increasingly be in demand to specify, design and install these systems. Many engineering consultancies and energy service companies are developing specialist sustainability teams, and already there is a shortage of skilled personnel.

Professional accreditation

The course provides the Masters level academic requirements leading to Chartered Engineer status when following on from an appropriate accredited BEng degree.

The course is accredited on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Timetable

Full-time schedule: Thursday and Friday – 2 days per week; part-time day-release schedule: Year 1 Thursday, Year 2 Friday.

Entry requirements

A Bachelor degree equivalent to UK Second Class Honours Lower Division in a relevant subject.

The course is designed for students with undergraduate degrees in building services, mechanical, electrical, or chemical engineering, or other relevant engineering disciplines.
