Course content

The MRes in Energy Demand Studies is designed to equip students for careers as professional researchers. Technical work is highly topical, focusing on energy demand in the built environment, and is complemented by the development of research and transferable skills.

The UCL Energy Institute is a leading centre for research into energy demand and the built environment, a sector of increasing importance due to the challenges of climate change, energy affordability and energy security. Students undertaking the Energy Demand Studies MRes have the opportunity to undertake original research in a multidisciplinary environment and engage with top class researchers.

Research into demand and the built environment provides many challenges for researchers due to the complex interplay of people, buildings and economics. The unique multidisciplinary approach of the programme helps students develop into more complete individual researchers and effectively integrate into research teams.
