Energy Studies

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Energy studies are useful for those looking to learn about how power works. Specialized energy programs may focus on a specific type of energy, such as solar or wind. Some programs may teach about sustainable energy and reducing the negative environmental impact of conventional power.

Even if you choose East Africa’s mythological, enchanting Tanzania; Senegal, land of teranga or South Africa, with its wide opportunities to soak in and serve, research in Africa will be overwhelming.

Master in Energy

The Institutional Research Theme “Energy” strives to provide the best balance between the University’s current research activities and the energy focus areas that are prioritised by Government, with an initial focus on electrical energy. This will set the University on the road towards national relevancy as it will be searching for solutions to South Africa’s energy problems.

The main research themes include:

Energy Production (This includes all viable energy production technologies, ranging from coal to nuclear to renewables.) Energy Distribution (This includes highly relevant topics such as “smart grids” and energy storage, which are gaining importance in the light of the increasing contribution of renewable energies such as solar and wind energy.) Energy Optimisation (The majority of energy plants are not very efficient, which creates considerable opportunities for research to improve thermal efficiency, improve efficiency by managing the demand side, plant lifetime extension, etc.) Advanced Materials (Almost all energy systems make use of advanced materials. Specific focus materials would be, for example, high-temperature materials and graphite.)   Policy, Economics and Society (Many energy systems do not fail technically, but fail because of poor policy decisions, legal shortcomings, poor economic modelling, poor project management, or poor societal management strategies.) Environment (Climate change is seen as a large component within the energy sector, notably aspects that link to greenhouse gases, nuclear and other waste, and carbon footprint.) ... [-]
