This MSc will prepare you for specialised industry roles in energy engineering or allow you to advance to specialist PhD study in energy and sustainability engineering.
A strong emphasis is placed on the practical application of knowledge. The University has strong, direct links with industry, providing you with opportunities to work on real-world engineering projects.
What you’ll study
This MSc will produce specialists with advanced skills in distinct areas of energy engineering. A very strong emphasis is placed on the practical application of theory.
The programme comprises a combination of lectures, practical and design exercises, tutorials, computer-based process simulation and optimisation, and resource-based, problem-based and enquiry-led learning.
Semester one comprises core modules that will provide you with general background knowledge of the energy industry, including economics, policy and impact assessment as well as a technical overview.
You will develop competence and confidence in the application of engineering knowledge and techniques to a range of industrial and real-world energy-related problems.
You will develop a good theoretical and practical understanding that balances the core fundamentals with the latest industry and research practice.
A final project and dissertation will enable you to identify and apply theory and practice to the analysis and solution of complex engineering problems.
Your future prospects
The energy engineering industry is expanding rapidly and employment opportunities are high. An increased focus on renewable energy projects is creating demand for sector specialist engineers. This programme provides you with the skills, competencies and knowledge to be successful in the workplace or will prepare you to advance to specialist PhD study in energy and sustainability engineering.
There are many opportunities to work with energy companies during the programme, enhancing your employability. This MSc has a host of industry advisors from companies and organisations likely to offer employment opportunities to students completing the programme. Our industry partners include Spencer Group and NPS Humber Limited.
The Humber is the largest Renewable Enterprise Zone in the UK. Green Port Hull, a collaboration between Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Associated British Ports, promotes investment and development of renewable energy sector in the region.
Normally an Honours degree (typically 2.2 or above, or international equivalent) in an engineering or related discipline, but less well-qualified applicants with relevant industrial experience may be considered.
If you require a Tier 4 student visa to study or if your first language is not English you will be required to provide acceptable evidence of your English language proficiency level.
This course requires academic IELTS 6.0 overall, with no less than 5.5 in each skill.
