MSc Energy & Environmental Engineering

Course Description

Build on your current credentials in the field of energy and environmental engineering, or take the first step into this vital industry.

Energy and the environment are increasingly taking their place as a major issue in today’s world.

The course emphasises renewable energy techniques and theories, while also addressing the scientific background associated with sustainable construction and renewable and alternative energies.

See the website http://www.napier.ac.uk/en/Courses/MSc-Energy-and-Environmental-Engineering-Postgraduate-FullTime

What you'll learn

As well as advanced engineering principles and practices, you’ll learn to effectively manage projects and develop your research skills. You’ll be given practical experience in applying these principles to the investigation and development of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind energy.

The course is accredited by both the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Energy Institute, UK. Combined with a suitable accredited undergraduate degree, the MSc degree would then satisfy the academic requirements of the UK Engineering Council for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
