New and Renewable Energy
The MSc in New and Renewable Energy is designed to equip our graduates with the skills required to meet the growing challenge to achieve energy and environmental sustainability through the application of new and renewable energy technologies. The programme aims to enable students to develop the capacity to solve problems across the traditional Engineering boundaries and to have an appreciation of complete energy systems from source to end user, to have knowledge of the relevant technologies and to understand the interactions between them. The programme also provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in research, development, design and project management through individual and team-based project work.
The programme consists of four core modules to provide an advanced engineering education in New and Renewable Energy technologies alongside an optional module that allows students to increase their understanding in a core area suited to their interests and needs. The modules include lecture courses, laboratory experiments, a group design project and a major, individual research and development project. Core Modules: Low Carbon Technologies, Energy Conversion and Delivery, Group Design Project, Research and Development Project. Optional modules: Students select one optional module. In previous years optional modules have included: Electrical Engineering 3, Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics 3.
A major individual research and development project completes the core modules. This provides an open-ended challenge to each individual student, in collaboration with a staff supervisor. Regular meetings are held with the supervisor to discuss project progress and planning issues. A mid-term assessment is carried out to ensure project is on track. At the end of the project you will be required to submit a final report on your work, in the style of a research paper. You are also required to prepare and to present a poster to allow an assessment to be made of your understanding and ability to present your work, plus an oral examination is held to allow detailed questions to be put to the student regarding the technical aspects of their project.
