Why Renewable Energy and Environmental Modelling at Dundee?

Climate change is possibly the most significant threat that humanity has ever faced. A new generation of scientists, engineers and policy-makers will need to be equipped with skills to enable them to make informed decisions on all aspects of this important and rapidly developing subject.

Our Masters degree in Renewable Energy and Environmental Modelling is designed to produce graduates with a broad and balanced skills base.

We provide the opportunity for you to go on field trips and external conferences as a part of your coursework, and you will have the option of undertaking either an industry-based or research-related project.

What's great about this course at Dundee?

The Dundee MSc is intended to interact with the renewables industry on many levels, enabling frequent networking opportunities during the year. The conference-style modules also allow delegates from industry to attend and enhance their skills in an informal and friendly setting. Graduates from this degree will be able to make an immediate contribution to the renewable energy sector.

Dundee University Centre for Renewable Energy (DUCRE)

DUCRE brings together a wide range of scientists with strong interests in renewable energy and evironmental issues. Staff and students in the Centre are engaged in a wide range of diverse renewable energy and environmental research. Projects range from electric vehicle technologies, to wind, solar, and hydro technologies, and from energy policy issues to Third World environmental development analysis.

Who should study this course?

The MSc in Renewable Energy and Environmental Modelling suits students and professionals from diverse backgrounds, including scientists, engineers, environmentalists, and policy-makers.

The programme has been designed to appeal to graduates with first degrees in the physical sciences, engineering, environmental science and related subjects. However, all applications will be assessed on their merits, regardless of background, and any relevant experience will also be taken into consideration.

The start date is September each year, and lasts for 12 months.

How you will be taught

This course utilizes conference-style teaching - delivered in one week intensive bursts.

The taught element will be delivered using a lively mix of lectures, seminars, peer-based problem-solving, practical sessions and site visits.

What you will study

Modules cover environmental physics, law and policy, renewable energy technologies, environmental monitoring, and the hydrogen economy.

You will study/take part in:

Foundation in renewable energy
Energy regulation law and security of supply
Hydrogen economy (incorporating fuel cells)
Physical concepts: A primer in energy, electromagnetism & electronic materials
Renewables technologies: In depth investigation of existing & emerging technologies, supply & demand issues, conservation & architectural issues
Environmental modelling: hydrology, carbon cycling, wind, wave & solar modelling
Field trips
Project

How you will be assessed

Students are assessed on written and practical work, formal presentations and a project dissertation.

Careers

Graduates from this programme will be able to make an immediate contribution to the renewable energy sector and make informed decisions that will have an impact on the development of national programmes to meet future targets.

Each graduate will have a firm grasp of the predominant and emerging technologies, and will be able to set these in context using a range of environmental monitoring techniques.

"The MSc provided a good base to research renewable technologies and understand how they fit into the energy mix and government policy. After graduation, I am now employed as Chief Technical Officer at Scottish Renewables."
David Cameron, class of 2008
