Course content

This MSc is part of the Midlands Energy Graduate School (MEGS), a partnership between the universities of Nottingham, Birmingham and Loughborough.

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.

You must be sure of the university within MEGS that you wish to study before you make an application. This will be dependent on the type of research project you are most interested in, you will apply to the university where you wish to undertake your research project.

Please contact the course director Dr Cheng-gong Sun, providing your degree subject and university and an outline of the fossil energy topics that interest you, we will then get back to you to advise where your application should be submitted.
