Course summary

The world faces major challenges in meeting the current and future demand for sustainable and secure energy supply and use. The one-year MPhil in Energy Technologies programme is designed for graduates who want to help tackle these problems by developing practical engineering solutions, and who want to learn more about the fundamental science and the technologies involved in energy utilisation, electricity generation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy.

Energy is a huge topic, of very significant current scientific, technological, environmental, political and financial interest. The complexity and rapid change associated with energy technologies necessitates engineers with a very good grasp of the fundamentals, with exposure and a good understanding of all main energy sources and technologies, but also with specialisation in a few areas. This is the prevailing philosophy behind this MPhil, fully consistent with the prevailing philosophy and structure of the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering as a whole.

The educational target of the MPhil in Energy Technologies is to communicate the breadth of energy technologies and the underpinning science. The objectives of the course are:

  • To teach the fundamental sciences behind technologies involved in energy utilisation, electricity generation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy.
  • To develop graduates with an overall view of energy engineering, while offering specialisation in a selected area through a research project.
  • To prepare students for potential future PhD research.
