With climate change presenting the greatest global challenge of our time, the search is on for alternatives to fossil fuels. Bioenergy from wood, waste, agricultural residues and energy crops is a major global energy renewable source. However, there are challenges concerning technical performance, cost effectiveness, sustainable production, food security and biodiversity.
A degree equivalent to a UK upper second class honours (2.1), or higher, in engineering, chemistry, physics or mathematics. Applicants with a 2.2 first degree will not be considered, even if they also have a Masters level degree.
Compulsory modules include: biomass, bioenergy and waste (15 credits), two interdisciplinary team research projects (2 x 45 credits), and the professional and skill development activities (which covers aspects of practical training, responsible innovation, team working, public engagement, outreach, commercial awareness development, and other skill development activities including the industrial placement) (15 + 30 credits).
