Course summary

Energy systems around the world are in transition, with policy drivers including: environment - climate change or air quality, increasing demand, and access to reliable supplies, greater urbanisation, putting pressure on infrastructure.

To meet these aims, new technologies are being developed, but the systems themselves are also changing. People are needed not just to develop or deploy single technologies, but to understand the context in which they will operate. This interdisciplinary programme is designed to cater to that need in a global context.

Chemical engineering in general is an extremely flexible and wide-ranging field, with direct impact on many sectors that are critical to the lives we lead, with the generation and delivery of energy being one of the most important of these sectors. The offering of this course fulfils a critical need to educate the next generation of energy professionals in concert with the internationally recognised research being undertaken through the Thermal Energy Research Accelerator (T-ERA) programme and the Birmingham Energy Institute (BEI).

This programme provides an ideal foundation for a career in the energy sector. Due to the wide-ranging scope of the course, we expect our graduates to gain expertise not only in the processes by which energy is generated, but also the larger-scale systems in which energy is utilised.

It is widely accepted that the annual investment in global energy infrastructure needs to greatly increase in order for challenges surrounding energy supply and demand, sustainability and climate change to be tackled. To these ends, the opportunities for exciting careers in the energy sector will also grow. The skills obtained through this course will give an excellent basis for a career oriented towards working in the expanding energy sector.

Our Careers Network offers a range of events and support services designed to help you maximise your employability: from networking opportunities and career coaching workshops, to our effective-careers-strategy toolkit and one-to-one guidance. We also offer subject specific careers consultants and advisers for each college and a dedicated careers website for international students.
