Course content

The University of Birmingham, as a partner in The Midlands Energy Graduate School (MEGS), has launched a new taught Masters in Efficient Fossil Energy Technologies.

Consisting of core and optional modules, delivered by experts from the universities of Nottingham, Birmingham and Loughborough, this MSc will encourage and embed excellence in fossil energy technologies, carbon capture and efficient combustion. It will prepare future leaders and industrial engineers with knowledge and skills to tackle the major national and international challenges of implementing new fossil-based power plant and processes more efficiently, with near zero emissions and CO2 capture.

This course provides expert teaching from three leading universities in the UK a unique partnership to allow students to benefit from a wide range of expertise. Modules studied represent the academic specialism offered by each university and the research project, taken at the university where you register, will focus on specific aspects of fossil energy technologies: Birmingham specialises in managing chemical reactions, plant design and carbon capture technologies; Loughborough in materials technologies for power generation and high-temperature applications; and Nottingham will focus on combustion technologies, power generation, environmental control and carbon capture. It is therefore important to select your choice of university carefully. Full details of these options and specialisms are in the Modules section of the Course Details tab and all enquiries are welcome.
