Course content

The one-year Sustainable Energy Technologies masters course offers engineering, science and mathematics graduates an academically challenging introduction to current and modern energy technologies for sustainable power generation.

Sustainable energy technologies need to meet a range of criteria across economic, social and environmental metrics. The first semester will focus on giving you a detailed overview of sustainable energy systems, resources and usage. You will learn to design and assess the performance of fuel cells and photovoltaic systems, wind power and hybrid propulsion systems. You will also understand thermo-fluid engineering processes for low carbon energy.

In the second semester, you will look at further renewable technologies and have the option to undertake a range of specialist modules, from Waste Resource Management to Bioenergy.

In the last four months, you will put your new found knowledge into practice. Under the guidance of world-class experts in this field, you will develop your practical skills as you complete a research project.
