Course summary

This course is designed to enable science and engineering graduates to assess different energy supply options and to analyse sustainable energy technologies.

Overview

This 12 month course is designed to enable science and engineering graduates to assess different energy supply options. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of modern sustainable, renewable and conventional technologies for a wide range of applications.

Due to a growing skills shortage in the energy sector, especially in emerging energy technologies, industry requires graduates with specialist knowledge and multidisciplinary ability.
