About the course

This course is for graduates and established professionals pursuing careers in energy management. We blend theory with hands-on experience, giving you the level of insight and understanding you need to be a great manager. We also cover:

  • Industrial applications
  • Industry-relevant applications of engineering analysis
  • Working in teams
  • Independent working and learning

Demand for energy is growing. But the world’s energy resources are limited. To address this, we need to change to the way we use energy and dispose of waste. That’s the focus of our MSc: to produce new generations of managers who are equipped to deal with these challenges.
