Course summary

Warwick's Engineering Department is consistently in the top ten of UK league tables. Join their Sustainable Energy Technologies MSc where you will gain in-depth and advanced knowledge of a diverse range of sustainable energy technologies, including wind, solar, fuel cells and bioenergy.

Course Overview

The development of sustainable and renewable methods for energy supply is a global priority, driven by the impacts of carbon-based fossil fuel use on the environment, as well as dwindling reserves of fossil fuels. The main challenges in the shift away from fossil fuel based power generation lie in the development of sustainable energy technologies, ranging from the engineering of new materials to the integration of these technologies into power distribution networks. This course provides the fundamental scientific and technical aspects of sustainable energy technology, introducing you to key enabling technologies, including electrical, electrochemical, mechanical and thermal aspects.

Teaching

The degree comprises eight taught modules and a project. The research project entails an in-depth experimental, theoretical or computational investigation into a topic chosen by the student in conjunction with an academic supervisor. Previous titles include: Developing and testing an improved solar thermal collector (for hot water); Gearbox design for wind turbines to withstand electrical faults; Energy footprint of power device fabrication.

Assessment

A combination of coursework and written examinations.
