The European Masters in Renewable Energy is a collaborative programme offered by 9 leading European universities.
This programme teaches students about the latest advances in clean power developments. The MSc enables graduates to design and develop benign renewable energy technologies that can be implemented in countries around the world to reduce our fossil fuel emissions.
Core study areas include solar power, wind power, water power, biomass, sustainability and energy systems, subject specialisation at a second university and a major individual research project internship in a renewable energy company.
Core Semester – studied at Loughborough University: - Solar Power - Wind Power - Water Power - Biomass - Sustainability and Energy Systems Specialisation
Module taken with a European partner university: - Renewable technology six month project undertaken in a company or research centre
Project: - Six month project undertaken in a company or research centre
How you will learn
The European Masters in Renewable Energy is composed of three sections. It begins with a core first semester that presents modules in Solar Power, Wind Power, Biomass Energy and Water Power.
For the second semester students move to a second university to specialize in the subject shown below. Finally, a major individual research project internship in a renewable energy company is carried out in the final six months of the Master’s degree.
Careers and further study
Due to the unique nature of the programme not only do students develop technical and scientific competencies in renewable energy, they also develop soft skills such as flexibility, adaptability, team spirit, and the ability to work in a multicultural environment, which are essential when working in an expanding global renewable energy market.
Why choose electronic, electrical and systems engineering at Loughborough?
We develop and nurture the world’s top engineering talent to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex world. All of our Masters programmes are accredited by one or more of the following professional bodies: the IET, IMechE, InstMC, Royal Aeronautical Society and the Energy Institute.
We carefully integrate our research and education programmes in order to support the technical and commercial needs of society and to extend the boundaries of current knowledge.
Consequently, our graduates are highly sought after by industry and commerce worldwide, and our programmes are consistently ranked as excellent in student surveys, including the National Student Survey, and independent assessments.
- Facilities Our facilities are flexible and serve to enable our research and teaching as well as modest preproduction testing for industry. Our extensive laboratories allow you the opportunity to gain crucial practical skills and experience in some of the latest electrical and electronic experimental facilities and using industry standard software.
- Research We are passionate about our research and continually strive to strengthen and stimulate our portfolio. We have traditionally built our expertise around the themes of communications, energy and systems, critical areas where technology and engineering impact on modern life.
- Career prospects 90% of our graduates were in employment and/or further study six months after graduating. They go on to work with companies such as Accenture, BAE Systems, E.ON, ESB International, Hewlett Packard, Mitsubishi, Renewable Energy Systems Ltd, Rolls Royce and Siemens AG.
