Renewable Energy Enterprise and Management

Renewable Energy Enterprise and Management (REEM) is a multi-disciplinary course blending appropriate project evaluation techniques and business enterprise with awareness of the potential of renewable energy technologies. The distinctive flexible learning approach blends distance learning with intensive face-to-face weeks on campus. The course supports those without prior technical education in energy who want to apply management, planning or business skills in expanding renewable energy developments. The main focus is developing enterprise culture and capability. Newcastle University has sustainability as one of our three key societal themes. Modules and projects are led by staff from across our Faculty of Science Agriculture and Engineering and build on our many strong research teams, including our leading Institute for Sustainability. DELIVERY: Each module typically takes nine weeks to complete, including one week on campus at a scheduled time between September and June. Within our flexible learning framework, assessment for each module is normally based on a combination of a pre-intensive assignment based on the initial distance study (eg a report, presentation or preliminary evaluation); an examination at the end of the intensive week (written, oral or submitted); a post-intensive assignment (eg report, project plan, etc). There is a strong emphasis on the development of research and autonomous study skills, preparing you for a future career in a rapidly evolving environment.
