Teaching and assessment

Our distance learning courses are delivered online through CampusMoodle, the University's virtual learning environment. Each module comprises up to 52 hours of lectures and tutorials. This information is based on the assumption ODL students can complete one 15 credit module (or equivalent) per semester. Typically modules will be taken in the order in which they appear in the schedule above. There is an element of flexibility to the order in which modules are taken and any change must be agreed with the School prior to commencement of the module. Students must normally complete all taught modules before progressing to the MSc Project.


  • Lectures – 23 hours per semester
  • Project supervision – 600 hours, made up of contact hours and non-contact hours over the MSc stage.
  • Independent study – 127 hours per semester


Significant additional private study is expected during each module. You’ll work autonomously and take responsibility for your own learning and professional and academic development. The suggested hours-of-study-per-week and other information is detailed in each Module Descriptor.


We’ve been delivering industry-relevant courses for the energy industry for many years, and our teaching staff members bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the curriculum. They are research-active and work on live industry projects. This includes input to patented technology and the design of products and systems to positively impact society and improve the lives of communities in developing countries.

Lecturers are involved in an ongoing development project with a Scottish business in relation to innovative solar powered systems funded by the Scottish Institute for Remanufacture. We’re also in collaboration with Scottish companies working on the development of solar energy systems for new applications. This has created great potential for students to work on industrial projects.
