Program Description

MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems

London South Bank University

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 of the technologies that deliver high-quality energy services with minimum environmental impact
  • Design appropriate decentralized 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.

Modules

An indicative list of topics covered in 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.

At LSBU, we want to set you up for a successful career. During your studies – and for two years after you graduate – you’ll have access to our Employability Service, which includes:

  • An online board where you can see a wide range of placements: part-time, full-time or voluntary. You can also drop in to see our Job Shop advisers, who are always available to help you take the next step in your search.
  • Our Careers Gym offering group workshops on CVs, interview techniques and finding work experience, as well as regular presentations from employers across a range of sectors.

Our Student Enterprise team can also help you start your own business and develop valuable entrepreneurial skills.


Entry requirements

The course is designed for students with undergraduate degrees in mechanical, electrical or chemical engineering, or other relevant engineering disciplines, and seek to develop specialized skills in building services engineering to enter this industry.

  • A BEng (Hons) degree in an appropriate discipline. Normally upper second class would be considered a minimum, but a lower class may be acceptable depending on experience.
  • Cognate degrees in appropriate disciplines (e.g. physics, chemistry or mathematics) will be accepted provided the candidate demonstrates some knowledge of building services engineering.
  • Other qualifications may be accepted depending on age and experience. This category would normally be reserved for mature candidates who have had several years experience in the building services industry.
  • For applicants whose first language is not English, an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent is required.

All modules are subject to change by the university and may differ from the modules you are offered during your studies.
