Efficient Fossil Energy Technologies

This programme aims to encourage and embed excellence in fossil energy technologies, carbon capture and efficient combustion. It includes modules on power generation and technologies, industrial case studies, economics of energy and innovation and allows students to assimilate the contextual issues surrounding fossil-based energy alongside technical aspects. Coupled with the major research project, this core will thus promote enquiry-based learning which will be supplemented by a range of optional technical and contextual/managerial modules.
