Masters degrees in Energy Technologies equip postgraduates with the skills to produce, transmit and store energy effectively. It includes both industrial and urbanised applications.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Engineering Subject.
Courses in this field train you to consider the scientific, technological, environmental, political and financial interest involved the production and development of Energy Technologies.
You are encouraged to develop practical engineering solutions for the needs of society and industry, exploring the technologies involved in energy utilization, electricity generation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy.
Specialisations Topics include clean fossil fuels, renewable energenergyy such as solar and wind, as well as , biofuel production and nuclear power engineering. You will learn to develop prototypes throughand systems modelling for a range of devices and consider their applications., Ffor example, you may investigate therom design ofning modern solar panels for solar farms, or investigate theto improvement ofing energy efficiency in various buildings.
Careers are highly varied, and can range from smart grid development to utilities management, communications and logistics, as well as public policy and financial planning within industrial practise.
