This MSc is part of the Midlands Energy Graduate School (MEGS), a partnership between the universities of Nottingham, Birmingham and Loughborough. Most modules taught by the universities of Nottingham and Loughborough are available either via state-of-the-art video-conferencing facilities, so students do not usually need to attend the other university in person. However, should any student wish to travel to partake directly in some lectures, advice can be provided on appropriate travel and accommodation. Many of the core modules are delivered in one-week intensive blocks. Coupled with the major research project, the core modules will promote enquiry-based learning which will be supplemented by a range of optional technical and contextual/managerial modules.
