The Faculty of Engineering runs a multidisciplinary postgraduate course entitled Sustainable Engineering with a number of different themes, one of which is offshore renewable energy.
This flexible programme combines study in specialist, advanced engineering technologies underpinned with training in sustainability. The programme has been developed with direct industrial involvement to provide you with a solid understanding of modern, sustainable engineering. As well as gaining an understanding of how sustainable engineering applies to offshore renewable energy, this programme will also provide you with key transferable skills to aid your employability.
The course is designed for experienced or newly qualified engineers in:
The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering, a leading institution in Scotland, offers excellent teaching and research facilities in naval architecture, ocean and marine engineering, which expands your career opportunities in naval architecture, marine, offshore oil and gas industry.
Studying at least three generic classes will meet the key requirements to attain Chartered Engineer status.
You must take three specialist classes if you are studying for the Postgraduate Certificate and up to five if you are studying for a Postgraduate Diploma or MSc.
Successful completion of six classes leads to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate.
You’ll work with a group of students from different pathways of the Sustainable Engineering programme. You’ll produce sustainable solutions to real-life industry problems. This project will include site visits, field trips and progress reports to industry partners.
Successful completion of eight modules and the group project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.
MSc students will study a selected topic in depth and submit a thesis.
Successful completion of eight classes, the group project and an individual project leads to the award of an MSc.
