Course content

Climate change and the need to manage diminishing fossil fuel reserves are, today, two of the biggest challenges facing the planet.

In order to secure the future for ourselves and generations to follow, it is widely accepted that we must act now to reduce energy consumption, switch to renewable energy sources and substantially cut greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide.

To do this, the renewables sector requires Renewable Energy Engineers with the right multidisciplinary skillset to pioneer the design, building and management of its infrastructure.

Drawing upon our particular research strengths in marine, solar and wind based generation alongside specialist modules in energy storage, this programme prepares you for a career in a variety of energy-related roles across the sector.

Our wide-ranging expertise in renewable and energy engineering is reflected by the broad array of modules offered as part of this degree, allowing graduates from a multitude of first degree backgrounds to adjust their learning towards personal interests and career aspirations.
