Course summary

This course focuses on energy conversion processes and practical abilities in management-related issues.

Overview

MSc Building Performance Engineering is designed to provide you with a high level of engineering and technical expertise in energy conversion processes, combined with practical abilities in management-related issues.

This course is tailored towards graduates in engineering, science and related disciplines. The strong emphasis on science, technology and engineering is specifically targeted towards subject areas within the context of renewable and sustainable energy technologies and the built environment and uniquely combines this with effective management skills, economic appraisal and an understanding of the current policies and regulations that can be applied within modern industry in the UK, EU and internationally.

This course offers a unique combination of advanced engineering and technology-focused study, combined with management, current regulations and auditing skills. Advanced study in engineering-related research methodologies provides invaluable experience either towards further academic study or industry-based research and development.

Graduates currently working in industry are encouraged to apply for part-time registration and work towards obtaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Registered part-time students are strongly recommended to be resident in Nottingham during the autumn and spring semesters.

Careers

Many graduates of this MSc programme have been rewarded for their innovative ideas and contribution to real energy projects, for example the prestigious National Energy Award for work on a large-scale solar project in Mexico. Graduates have entered both academia and industry in the UK and overseas.

This course develops a practical and theoretical understanding and therefore enables graduates to work with architectural or engineering firms, move into teaching at university level, or undertake research leading to a PhD.

This course is fully accredited by the Engineering Council UK (ECUK) and the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) enabling a clear path for graduates who wish to obtain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and professional body membership (MCIBSE).

The acquisition of a masters degree from the University of Nottingham demonstrates a high level of knowledge in a specific field. Whether you are using it to enhance your employability, as preparation for further academic research or as a means of vocational training, you may benefit from careers advice as to how you can use your new found skills to their full potential.
