Course summary

Industries worldwide are increasingly turning towards renewable sources of energy generation as we seek to find ways of powering our world without destroying our planet. On our MSc Renewable Energy Engineering course you’ll explore the design, analysis and implementation of renewable energy projects in depth.

We’ll equip you with the engineering knowledge and practical skills you need to develop and implement creative solutions to the engineering problems you’ll encounter when capturing and converting renewable energy. You’ll gain a deep understanding of system design and analysis, project development and implementation.

Throughout this course you’ll make use of lab and field-testing facilities for measuring and monitoring the performance of different renewable energy systems, such as wind turbines, photovoltaic power systems and heat pumps.

You’ll also learn to use various tools for component and system design, as well as simulation of the performance and monitoring of renewable energy systems. Some of the tools you’ll get to use include Matlab/Simulink, GH WindFarmer and WAsP for wind farm design; PVsyst for photovoltaic system design; and Labview for system monitoring.
