Course content

The growing international interest in different energy sources and their uses has shifted priorities in the energy field. The future leaders that will form the new global vision and develop the policies regulating the field will need a solid and diverse skill set.

The MSc Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics has been designed to develop the knowledge and the skills of the participants in cost-effective management and regulation of the rapidly changing energy sector.

City University London offers you exposure to a wide variety of subjects ranging from managing conventional energy production units to renewable technologies and from regulating policies relevant to low carbon emissions to risk management assessment. The subjects are covered from the perspective of both high level national and international policies and economics to energy supply markets as seen from the users' and suppliers' perspectives.

One of the distinguishing features of our course is that the lectures are delivered by a range of experts from the energy industry. Our students gain up-front knowledge of what is a rapidly evolving energy perspective from those directly involved. It also gives experienced recognition of regulations and national policies that are being developed or must be conformed to.
