Course content

This is the first and only postgraduate course of its kind in the UK focusing on solar as a renewable energy. The MSc Solar Energy Systems course will help you to develop an in-depth understanding of the theory and practice, along with professional and research skills necessary to characterise, design and manage solar energy systems.

A unique element of this course is the collaboration with industry and its relevance to the current issues in the modern-day solar energy sector. We are actively working with Scottish companies on the development of solar energy systems for new applications, and this provides you with opportunities to work on industrial projects which will enhance your employability.
