University of Cambridge
The world faces major challenges in meeting the current and future demand for sustainable and secure energy supply and use. The programme is designed for graduates who want to help tackle these problems by developing practical engineering solutions, and who want to learn more about the fundamental science and the technologies involved in energy utilization, electricity generation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy. The course aims to teach the fundamental sciences behind technologies involved in energy utilization, electricity generation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy, develop graduates with an overall view of energy engineering, while offering specialisation in a selected area through a research project and prepare students for future research.
Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK 1st Class Honours degree. A wide range of graduates are encouraged to apply, including mechanical, chemical, civil, or environmental engineers. Physics and chemistry graduates are also encouraged, while electrical engineers who want to learn more about the thermo-fluid aspects of energy technologies can also apply. Selection is carefully done to ensure sufficient academic background. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 7.0 (with a minimum 6.5 in reading and 7.0 in listening, writing and speaking) or equivalent.
Assessment methods include essays, written examinations and a thesis.
