Course summary

With the increasing costs associated with fossil fuel, the focus of the energy sector is moving steadily to renewable energy applications. As well as gaining an understanding of the renewable energy sector, students will also be able to develop a sound understanding of current environmental and waste management systems, their future development and the legislation surrounding changes in environmental practice and resource management. Foundation Degrees (FD) are distinctive in that they integrate employer involvement, accessibility, articulation and progression, flexibility and partnership into a single award. The Foundation Degree in Energy, Environment and Sustainability meets all these attributes through the provision of work placement, real-life case studies, an articulation route to the BSc Honours Land Use and Environmental Management degree within Queen's and partnership with South West College, Omagh Campus, where the programme is delivered. This Foundation Degree develops and improves participants' environmental knowledge and sustainable practices aimed at increasing diversification of economies. Through consideration of up-to-date environmental issues, a focus on economic and social renewal and knowledge transfer from best practice and demonstration models, graduates will be provided with a qualification to benefit business communities, their support workers and the public.
