The offshore renewable energy market is growing rapidly in the UK and Europe, with firm targets for delivery of a significant amount of energy from renewable sources by 2020. Many of the issues faced by this new activity are similar to those faced many years ago by the offshore oil and gas industry and so this course takes full advantage of the experience gained in this sector. The Offshore and Ocean Technology with Offshore Renewable Energy MSc focuses on the technology and management issues of offshore renewable devices, with a strong background in the key technologies for offshore use.
Impressive international rankings for the course of study and its reputation as the only postgraduate institution in the EU attracted me to Cranfield University. Also, its collaboration with industry was an important factor. It helped me to develop my knowledge of business operations and how this interfaces with engineering expertise. I now have options in the manufacturing and the energy industries, both of which are my preferred career choices. I found the international environment, as well as the access to social and extracurricular activities and facilities such as tennis and Jujutsu classes, and trips to Cambridge and London, fantastic.
