New and Renewable Energy
This course is designed to equip 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.
Applicants need the equivalent of a UK Honours degree to at least an upper second class standard. This should be in an Engineering or Engineering-related subject although in some instances we can consider industrial or other relevant experience if you have a different first degree.
Core modules; renewable energy fundamentals; renewable energy and environment; group design project; research and development project. Optional modules: students select 3 optional modules, consisting of low carbon and thermal technologies; turbomachinery and nuclear power engineering; energy delivery and network integration; energy generation and conversion technologies; energy markets and risk.
Laboratory work, assignments and a dissertation.
