Electrical and Electronic Engineering is at the core of the modern world, from computers, to digital circuits, photonics and a wealth of electronics.
This 5-year MEng degree puts electrical and electronic engineering into the context of Renewable Energy Engineering and is ideally suited to somebody who wishes to focus their electrical and electronic skills on this particular growing industry, where technology continues to change and new, creative solutions continuously being sought. The University of Aberdeen has a proven track record of preparing graduates for the Energy sector. Consequently, we have recruited specialist staff in our engineering school and attracted highly-regarded industrial experts from the energy industry who contribute to the relevant taught modules. After laying a strong foundation of basic and advanced electrical and electronic engineering concepts in the first four years (similar structure to the straight MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering), the programme offers students to enhance their knowledge specifically in aspects related to renewable energy. The programme prepares the students to take up exciting careers designing long-distance high-voltage transmission lines, biofuel plants, geothermal and tidal wave extractors or large solar farms.
One of the main features of the programme is its focus on all renewable energy sources; solar & geothermal, wind, marine, hydro power and biomass fuel. Many renewable related degree programmes focus solely on one area of the sector but we intentionally provide an overview of them all so you have the best opportunity of gaining a successful career upon graduation.
