Course content

This is an advanced, specialist programme in the rapidly expanding area of renewable energy engineering with a clear Mechanical Engineering focus. The programme is aimed at students wishing to develop critical understanding of the significant changes afoot in the energy system due to the development and integration of wind, marine, biomass and solar technologies. The programme will enable graduates to develop and implement creative solutions to the problems encountered in renewable energy capture, conversion, storage and management.

Students will gain the knowledge and skills to assess renewable energy resources, design appropriate renewable energy systems, evaluate the performance of these systems and assess the wider impacts of renewable energy development. The programme provides introductory courses to fundamental energy science and current energy issues, while the project-led courses focus on the design of renewable energy systems. The programme concludes with a research-led dissertation in the summer.

Renewable energy research focuses on six main areas:

  • Photovoltaics and Solar Energy
  • Wind and Marine Energy
  • Renewable Energy Systems
  • Minimising CO2 Emissions
  • Biofuels
  • Wind and Marine Energy
