Course summary

Why choose this course

Could the design of novel nanomaterials based on atoms and molecules hold the secret to saving our planet from predicted climate catastrophe? Will solar energy provide the long-term alternative to fossil fuels? And how will we successfully harvest this energy?

Our MSc in Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy allows you to discover the practical implementation of nanoscience and quantum engineering, nanomaterials, and nanotechnology for renewable energy generation and storage.

You’ll be taught by world-leading experts at the University’s Advanced Technology Institute, and gain specialised skills through an individual research project within our research groups, using the latest advanced equipment and facilities.

What you will study

Our MSc in Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy explores the practical implementation of nanoscience and nanomaterials for clean and green energy applications.

You’ll begin by learning the fundamentals behind nanotechnology before discussing its implementation using nanomaterials – such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, 2D materials and perovskite solar cells.

You'll discover how advanced nanotechnology tools are used to allow us to see things at a nanoscale and learn about future trends and applications for energy generation and storage. Topics here include sustainable energy generation from solar, thermo electrics, piezo electrics, tribo electrics, hydrogen fuels cells, and storage with supercapacitors and batteries.

Completion of the course will provide you with the essential skills you need to advance your career in the rapidly developing renewable energy field. You can take part in the clean energy revolution taking place today where decarbonising of energy is number one priority all around the world.
