The 21st century calls for graduates with an interdisciplinary training and problem-solving competence in the fields of ecology, energy, resources etc. Process engineering, for example, with such fields as environmental- and energy engineering, is now seen as one of the key disciplines. It deals with the engineering required for a wide range of processes and the transformation of materials, in which raw materials are converted in a series of unit operations into salable intermediate and final products.

One focus of training within the discipline relates to the development and application of various environmental and energy technologies. Both environmental- and energy engineering are classified as green technologies, which have developed at an above-average rate in the last few years. That is due to growing social awareness for sustainability and the finite nature of our resources on the one hand and legal constraints on the other. The latter in particular call for innovative processes and technologies in response to today’s challenges. The Master program in Environmental, Process & Energy Engineering is designed to communicate the knowledge, methodology and problem-solving competence needed to tackle a very wide range of engineering problems in the above mentioned fields. With its commitment to bridge-building between the academic and the business worlds, Management Center Innsbruck also provides essential teaching in the increasingly important horizontal disciplines of law and economics, and the skills needed for today’s labor market.

This programme aims to prepare students with science backgrounds to develop unique expertise in the fundamentals of energy and the environment, their applications for the benefit of humankind, and the ability to stay abreast of the field of sustainable energy engineering.

The programme structure is designed to appeal to students with sciences or mathematics backgrounds, and is modular in format. The content of the programme includes a compulsory Engineering Methods module in the first semester, which aims to introduce and develop engineering techniques for students with varied backgrounds. Other than these modules students will be taking specialist energy engineering modules that are being developed for the MSc. This will bolster our current offering, but will also allow these students to become specialists in their field.

A 60 credit research project is to be undertaken using our research activities and our state of the art facilities. Several high performance computing clusters owned by the university support a full spectrum of computational research. Our well equipped laboratories include a wide range of IC engines, heat transfer facilities, wind tunnels, an anechoic chamber, a UK CueSim Flight Simulator and France-Price Induction Jet engine test bench, and energy materials synthesis and characterisation labs. support Systems, Aerodynamics and Propulsion research. Nanotechnology research is further supported by the facilities and expertise provided by Nanoforce, a company directly associated with the School.

* All new courses are required to undergo a two-stage internal review and approval process before being advertised to students. Courses that are marked "subject to approval" have successfully completed the first stage of this process. Applications are welcome but we will not make formal offers for this course until it has passed this second (and final) stage.

Your programme of study

If you want to get into renewable energy University of Aberdeen offer an online programme which you can study flexibly to fit around your work, life and anywhere in the world. It is a great way to study a degree from a known and trusted brand with exactly the same content as the on campus version but delivered entirely online.

Renewable energy engineering is in high demand globally as we find alternate methods of energy harvesting to meet our future energy needs and future proof our reliance on hydrocarbons as much as it is possible to do. Considerable innovation and improvements are continuous within this field as it is by no means at a stage where society can rely on it to fuel all needs. The sector is interdisciplinary and this programme provides you with a wide range of very useful skills and knowledge to problem solve and progress current renewables and work towards innovation whether that is in a renewables company or as a start up.

You study electrical and electronic engineering pertinent to smart grid, sensing energy use, developing energy harvesting techniques, and renewable energy exchange, plus ability to harvest energy from all of our natural resources including wind, solar, hydro, marine, geothermal, biomass and other newly developing areas. Renewables is definitely an employable sector as governments are now challenged by finite resources coming from traditional areas, climate change and societal concerns about how we harvest energy in the future and our ability to survive climatic issues, population increase and manage work and life.
