Course content

This course allows students to come into contact with those in other engineering programmes and thus develop multidisciplinary interests and skills. The course focuses on the design and operation of the energy systems that provide the environments in which people live and work. It responds to the growing awareness that quality of life must be balanced by the need for conservation of world resources, especially energy, and the protection of the environment. The course produces professionals who understand this balance and who seek to harness energy resources in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly manner.
