Course content

Production from conventional oil resources has peaked and similar peaks will occur in the future for natural gas and coal. Use of renewable resources and application of renewable energy technologies is likely to play a major role in future energy supply.

The MSc course comprises eight assessed modules, an integrated group project and an individual project. Students undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) complete the eight modules and the group project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students complete six modules, a project and a personal development portfolio.

This course develops professional engineers and scientists with the multidisciplinary skills and ability to analyse current and future energy engineering problems. In addition you will be equipped to design and implement appropriate solutions for these issues, taking into account the social, environmental, technical, regulatory and commercial issues and constraints.

Evidence is growing that production from conventional oil resources has already peaked and that, at current usage rates, similar peaks will occur in the foreseeable future for natural gas and coal.

Developed economies now face a number of challenges in procuring energy security and responding to energy pricing and affordability issues, as well as dealing with contributions to carbon emissions in line with the UK Government’s ambitious targets of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Students benefit from dedicated state-of-the-art facilities including unique engineering-scale facilities for the development of efficient technologies with low CO2 emissions.
