Entry requirements

To be admitted to the MSc programme in New and Renewable Energy, you need the equivalent of a UK Honours degree to at least an upper second class standard. This should normally be in an appropriate Engineering or Engineering-related subject including modules in electrical engineering and/or thermodynamics although in some instances we can consider industrial or other relevant experience if you have a different first degree.

Course content

The MSc in New and Renewable Energy is designed to equip our graduates with the skills required to meet the growing challenge to achieve energy and environmental sustainability through the application of new and renewable energy technologies. The course aims to enable students to develop the capacity to solve problems across the traditional Engineering boundaries and to have an appreciation of complete energy systems from source to the end-user, to have knowledge of the relevant technologies and to understand the interactions between them. The course also provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in research, development, design and project management through individual and team-based project work.

Course Structure

The programme consists of five core modules to provide advanced engineering education in New and Renewable Energy technologies alongside an optional module that allows students to increase their understanding in an area suited to their interests and needs. In addition to these taught modules, you will also complete a group design project and a major, individual research and development project working closely with an academic in your chosen subject area.

Core taught content:
  • Renewable Energy Technologies
  • Future Vehicles
  • Electrical Energy Conversion
  • Smart Energy Networks
