Course content

The focus in this programme is on equipping the students with the information base and skill set to actively participate in this growing global market where energy/environment policy and technological innovation meet. The students will choose 10 taught modules from a prescribed list and carry out a preliminary research project within the first 8 months from October. Those who obtain at least 50% in both coursework and research are then eligible to undertake a minor thesis (4 months) over the Summer, leading to the award of the Masters degree.
