Course content

Renewable Energy Flexible Training Programme (REFLEX) is a multi-disciplinary cross-Faculty course for engineers interested in renewable energy and its contribution to sustainability. The unique flexible learning approach blends distance learning with intensive face-to-face weeks on campus.

This is a challenging course, covering the full range of renewable energy technologies as well as essential contextual studies, including an introduction to the impact of governmental policies and politics.

Newcastle University has sustainability as one of our three key societal themes. Modules and projects are led by staff from across our Faculty of Science Agriculture and Engineering and build on our many strong research teams, including our leading Institute for Sustainability.

Delivery

MSc degree students study 120 credits of compulsory taught modules plus a 60 credit renewable energy project.

PG Diploma (PGDip) students study either 120 credits of taught modules or select 90 credits of taught modules plus a 30 credit renewable energy project.

PG Certificate (PGCert) students select 60 credits of taught modules.

You can choose to study one module at a time, which is called continuous professional development (CPD). One module typically takes 9 weeks to complete and includes one week on campus.

Within the flexible learning framework, assessment for each module is normally based on a combination of:
-A pre-intensive assignment based on the initial distance study (eg a report, presentation or preliminary evaluation)
-An examination at the end of the intensive week (written, oral or submitted)
-A post-intensive assignment (eg report, project plan, etc)

There is a strong emphasis on the development of research and autonomous study skills, to prepare you for a future career in a rapidly evolving environment.

Work experience

This course has an Advisory Steering Group chaired by one of the industrial members to provide external input on the relevance of the course and support many work-based projects for students.

The flexible learning structure of this course makes it easy for students to incorporate industry experience with their studies.

Accreditation

This course has been accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), Energy Institute (EI) and Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).

An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Facilities

Our renewable energy courses draw on staff and facilities from across the whole Faculty including:
-A demonstrator digester plant at our Cockle Park Farm
-A wind-wave-current testing tunnel
-A number of specialist research centres
-Well-equipped teaching laboratories
