This internationally renowned degree, based within a world-leading renewable energy research group, equips graduates and professionals with a broad and robust training.
Wind, marine and solar energy technologies are covered, as well as the wider environment in which they are to fit, including: resource assessment; energy production, delivery and consumption; efficiency; sustainability; economics, policy and regulation.
In addition, our MSc students actively engage in research as part of their dissertation projects either within the Institute for Energy Systems or with industry, with some joining our PhD community afterwards.
This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Environment & Society Academy.
This programme is run over 12 months, with two semesters of taught courses followed by a research project leading to a masters thesis.
Semester 1 Technologies for Sustainable Energy Energy Innovation Governance and Strategy Sustainable Energy Contexts Either Electrical Engineering Fundamentals of Renewable Energy or Mechanical Engineering Fundamentals of Renewable Energy
Semester 2 Principles of Wind Energy Marine Energy Solar Energy and Photovoltaic Systems An MSc Dissertation project from May to August
Depending on quotas and timetabling, we can offer further courses from the Schools of Engineering, GeoSciences, Mathematics, and Social and Political Science, and from Scotland's Rural College.
Graduates go on to a wide range of activities in industry, public organisations or academia. The MSc has well established links with industry, with many graduates finding employment with leading national and international companies involved with energy, consultancy and engineering.
The minimum entry requirement is a UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent, preferably in engineering or a physical science. Applicants with backgrounds in other fields, who studied mathematics to first year undergraduate level, may be accepted.
