Course summary

Overview

Energy and Environment is a research theme within which you can focus your studies as part of our suite of Engineering research programmes (MPhil, PhD). One of the School’s three research themes is that of Energy and Environment, which aims to advance energy technology and play a key role in addressing the increasing demand for sustainable and low carbon technologies, while reducing environmental impact and ensuring a sustainable environment. Research work carried out under the Energy theme is innovative and pioneering, with a mission to advance energy technology in the global quest for a sustainable energy economy. The aim of the Energy theme is to contribute both to the longer term creation of knowledge, but also to analyse and understand what is necessary to encourage the adoption of existing low carbon technologies that have yet to be deployed widely. Research in this theme also plays a vital role in reducing environmental impact and increasing sustainable practices in a wide range of areas, including construction, fuel, energy, waste disposal, water quality and flood protection. The combination of these fields represents a multidisciplinary approach to some of the biggest challenges that face a society moving towards more environmental awareness and increased need for sustainability. To address the different aspects of energy and environmental research, the Energy and Environment theme is divided into seven groups with specialised research interests; the Geo-environmental Research Centre (GRC), the Hydroenvironmental Research Centre, and the BRE Centre for Sustainable Construction, the Centre for Integrated Renewable Energy Generation and Supply (CIREGS), the Advanced High Voltage Engineering Research Centre (AHIVE), the Wolfson Centre for Magnetics and the Centre for Research into Energy, Waste and the Environment (CREWE).
