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 programme 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 end user, to have knowledge of the relevant technologies and to understand the interactions between them. The programme 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 four core modules to provide an advanced engineering education in New and Renewable Energy technologies alongside an optional module that allows students to increase their understanding in a core area suited to their interests and needs. The modules include lecture courses, laboratory experiments, a group design project and a major, individual research and development project.

Core Modules

  • Low Carbon Technologies
  • Energy Conversion and Delivery
  • Group Design Project
  • Research and Development Project.

Optional modules

Students select one optional module. In previous years optional modules have included:

  • Electrical Engineering 3
  • Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics 3.
