Course content

Renewable Energy Systems and the Environment is one of the pathways offered in the Sustainable Engineering programme.

This course examines the design and operation of the energy systems that provide the environments in which people live and work. It explores how quality of life can be balanced by the need for conservation of world resources.

You’ll learn about different energy resources:

  • renewable
  • fossil
  • nuclear

You’ll look at the systems that are employed to control these resources such as:

  • combined heat & power schemes
  • heat pumps
  • solar capture devices
  • high efficiency condensing boilers
  • advanced materials
  • adaptive control systems

You’ll explore the impact energy has on the environment and how it can be reduced.

Our course has been running for over 20 years and has over 400 graduates. External examiners consistently refer to our beneficial links with industry and the high quality of our project work.
