Course summary

Designed in collaboration with local industry and the sector skills council, this course will help you to develop the skills and knowledge to operate in one of the rapidly emerging fields in engineering. The renewables sector has grown in recent years with large-scale investment in areas such as wind turbines and solar energy. This course helps to address the skills gap for this relatively new sector through the delivery of core and specialist modules, focusing on renewable energy principles and practical applications. You will be given the opportunity to work towards EngTech or IEng professional status with the Engineering Council, through a regulatory body. You will be offered the opportunity to visit various engineering companies throughout your studies to gain vital first-hand experience of how engineering theory is put into practice. This course will provide you with the necessary skills to gain employment within the renewables sector or the general engineering environment. Academic progression is available through our one-year BEng Manufacturing Engineering (Top-Up), BEng Electrical Engineering (Top-Up) or BSc (Hons) Engineering Management (Top-Up).
