Discover real-world career opportunities in the energy sector with this world-class MSc in Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics.

Who is it for?

This programme is for students who want to engage with a wide range of industrial, commercial and research aspects of the energy sector. A focus on the current challenges and future opportunities leads students to research and investigate the implications of the many factors, environmental, technological, social and political, that influence the energy sector. It provides students with the knowledge and tools to identify pathways towards a more sustainable future, and ultimately enhances their ability to improve conditions for the wider population.

Students on the programme come from a range of backgrounds including engineering, environmental studies, finance, economics and law as well as professionals from the energy sector. Graduates from this programme have gone on to hold key and influential jobs in the energy industry and services.

  • Understand the technologies for reducing environmental impact and their economics
  • Consider ethical responsibilities in relation to energy use
  • Rapidly assess the most important features of a new technology
  • Integrate information across a broad range of subject areas, from engineering
  • through economics to risk assessment
  • Identify a range of perspectives, and look at the influence of a myriad of other forces at play by engaging with practising businesses and trade associations
  • The discipline of auditing energy consumption
  • Monitoring performance and engaging with international energy management standards

Accreditation

Accredited by the Energy Institute on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.  The programme also contains pathways to qualify as further learning for accreditation with the Energy Institute for Chartered Energy Manager (CEM).  All students qualify for free student membership of the Energy Institute.

Placements

There is no formal requirement to do an industry-based placement as part of the programme. However, some students arrange to undertake their dissertation research within a company or within their part of the world. 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 choose four elective modules from seven available, covering diverse subjects relating to energy supply and demand. You are normally required to complete all the taught modules successfully before progressing to the dissertation.

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.

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.

Career prospects

The skills and knowledge that you develop on this course will make you employable in a range of sectors in which effective energy supply and demand-side management has become an important consideration.

You will graduate with economic and market-based skills relevant to complying with relevant legislation and technical and engineering skills related to energy generation and management.

With strong industry links and working level experience from our exceptional team of expert lecturers, as well as the diverse modules on offer, you will be equipped to become a leader and entrepreneur in your chosen area of specialisation within the realm of energy management, supply or policy making.
