A recent student investigated the future of coal-fired generation in Turkey, and another student is combining a work placement at The World Energy Council with their dissertation.

Teaching and learning

Teaching is organised into modules comprising four consecutive day courses taken at a rate of one a month or so. This format makes the programme accessible for students who want to study part-time while working. Full-time students are also welcome.

Whether you choose to take the course as a part-time or full-time student, we will offer a great deal of support when it comes to helping you prepare for the modules and project work. You will be expected to devote a significant part of your non-taught hours to project work as well as private study.

Our course is led by an exceptional group of experts in energy, supply, demand management and policies. As an example, one of our module leaders leads the UK contribution to writing international energy management standards and informing policy through the European Sector Forum for Energy Management. This forum looks at methodologies across the continent.

There is also input to global standards development through the International Standards Organisation (ISO). At City we bring on board people with well-established academic careers, as well as leaders from the energy industry. The programme has strong links with industry and commerce and involves many visiting lecturers who hold senior positions in their fields.

You will be assessed by examination on the four core modules and you will need to complete a post modular assessment (a 2,000 to 3,000-word essay) on all of the eight modules.

Modules

You will take four core modules and have six elective modules from which you can choose four topics from diverse subjects relating to energy supply and demand.

Each course module is taught over four consecutive days of teaching with one module each month. Alongside the teaching, you will have coursework to complete for each module. The modules run from October to April, and in the remaining time, you will concentrate on your dissertation, which forms a significant part of the programme.

You are normally required to complete all the taught modules successfully before progressing to the dissertation.

The dissertation gives you the opportunity to create your own questions and to decide on your own area of interest. It should be a detailed investigation into a subject on energy supply and/or demand, with your own analysis and conclusions outlining the way forward. You may see the focus of your dissertation as a future career path, but whatever your area of study, these final few months of the degree should embody your vision of the future.

If you are interested in sustainability, you have the option of taking up to two elective modules from the MSc in Environmental Strategy offered by the University of Surrey.

Core modules

  • Introduction to energy and environmental issues (15 credits)

Your programme of study

Are you interested in where we source our future energy and how we protect what we have now and in the future? Do you have environmental concerns about how energy is extracted and what regulation is in place to prevent damage to the environment?  This programme focuses on two main interlinked areas within energy management of politics and law.  Within the political setting you understand regulation as you do in the legal setting but you look at policies, regulation and interdependencies and relationships globally to understand how risk, security and future policy may alter and how this then translates in law. There is a heightened senses of awareness now within energy and climate and an increased sense of urgency about pollution controls and concerns about energy reserves.  This is set within a volatile political and social environment in many countries some of whom supply energy globally. You look at historical oil crisis, security, and politics and you connect this to environmental regulation systems, and the different legal systems and approaches in law.

This programme gives you a wide breadth of skills and knowledge in an essential area of the energy industry, both upstream and downstream, commercial and domestic globally. You are taught in the energy capital of Europe in Aberdeen city, home to a multitude of FTSE 100 companies from the energy industry and you learn from both its learning's and that of academics who follow it closely at Aberdeen. There is a lot of historic case law and knowledge gained from the energy industry which has influenced energy law over time and much of it has related to the tightening of mechanisms and regulation to prevent environmental damage from occurring. There are also economic influences on the energy industry which can rapidly alter the economics of countries when suppliers change prices, lower or raise production or change group agreements. Even within the domestic market energy suppliers continue to influence the prices we pay for our domestic energy which can in turn affect domestic economics within countries.

You can work as a lawyer or regulator across the supply chain from source to domestic energy or you can work as a consultant or advisor within policy. Within the energy industry itself you can be a vital part of project initiation in understanding policy, guidance, risks and laws to support growth alongside social and legal responsibility to ensure integrity in all areas of energy extraction.
