The course is well structured covering a wide range of topics that are relevant to the engineering discipline. The course encouraged me to learn how to work effectively within a group as well as on an individual basis – these are key skills that employers look for in prospective candidates.
I was attracted to the course at first, as there are not many courses that are specific to renewables around the UK. Coming to Strathclyde is an extra bonus as it is a top university and is situated right in the heart of Glasgow city.
I have enjoyed the programme because it is very well organised with a good diversity of technological background in different energy resources and energy efficiency, and teaches you how to work as part of a group.
