Program description

Renewable Energy Systems Engineering MSc

How do we balance finite resources and infinite human ambition? Renewable energy systems are part of the solution.

Our Renewable Energy Systems MSc is ideal for graduates from engineering, science or other relevant backgrounds who have an interest in pursuing a successful career in research, technological change and the commercialisation of renewable-energy systems.

You’ll be taught by academics who are experts in their fields and have access to a range of exceptional facilities and resources.

Created in the context of the rapid advancement of the renewable-energy industry, our MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Engineering investigates both renewable energy and systems technologies.

Throughout your studies, you’ll have opportunities to learn about major renewable-energy technologies, energy-sector economics, supply-chain management and sustainable development.

This course is designed to build your competence and confidence in the research, development and engineering tasks that are demanded of scientific engineers in the renewable and sustainable-development sector.

Admission requirements

A minimum of a 2:1 UK honours degree in either Chemistry, Engineering or Physics, or a recognised equivalent international qualification. We'll also consider relevant work experience if you don't meet these requirements.

English language requirements

IELTS Academic: 6.5 overall with 6.0 in Writing and 5.5 in each other element.

If you do not currently meet the level required for your programs, we offer intensive pre-sessional English language courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies.
