Energy Engineering

Climate change and limited fossil fuel reserves are creating an unprecedented demand for renewable energy and Hull, on the Humber - Britain's energy estuary, is the ideal location to study energy engineering. This MSc will prepare you for specialised industry roles in energy engineering or allow you to advance to specialist PhD study in energy and sustainability engineering. A strong emphasis is placed on the practical application of knowledge. The University has strong, direct links with industry, providing you with opportunities to work on real-world engineering projects. There are two pathways leading to the following awards:; MSc Energy Engineering: Energy Technologies in Building; A mainly design-based programme, involving energy consumption analyses in building, building services (heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration) systems design, as well as renewable energy (solar, ground soil, wind, biomass and fuel cell) application in buildings. The projects are specifically tailored to solve practical problems.; MSc Energy Engineering: Renewable Energy Technologies; An opportunity to study a range of technologies from PV and solar thermal to biomass, wind and tidal. Students will have access to experimental facilities in all of these areas as well as the possibility to investigate resource modeling and design of novel harvesting devices.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2:1 Honours degree in an engineering or related discipline, but less well-qualified applicants with relevant industrial experience may be considered. International applicants - Competence in English is required for international students. For example: IELTS with 6.0 overall with 5.5 in each skill; previous study in English is accepted; candidates that do not meet the language requirements may take an English course at the University of Hull prior to entering the programme.

Course modules

Core modules:;

Energy Technologies;
Environmental Management and Policy;
Research Management and Research Skills;

Students will then follow their specialist path, selecting three further modules from options including:;

Renewable Energy in Buildings;
Built Energy System Design and Practice;
Power distribution, storage and control;
Sustainable Waste Management;
Energy in Buildings: Load Analysis;

You will develop competence and confidence in the application of engineering knowledge and techniques to a range of industrial and real-world energy-related problems.;

You will develop a good theoretical and practical understanding that balances the core fundamentals with the latest industry and research practice.;

A final project and dissertation will enable you to identify and apply theory and practice to the analysis and solution of complex engineering problems.

Assessment methods

A final project and dissertation enable students to identify and apply theory and practice to the analysis and solution of complex engineering problems.
