The MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems is an interdisciplinary degree addressing the scientific, engineering and technical aspects of global concerns about the availability of energy sources, sustainability of these sources through exploitation of new technologies or preservation of existing sources, and environmental concerns. The impetus to specialise in this area stems from the large projected increases in global population and energy demand and is underscored by the need for new workable global supplies of affordable sustainable energy. These concerns elevate this energy need as perhaps the greatest single challenge facing the world in the 21st century. The current acute nature of the challenge results from the confluence of concerns about energy supply and demand, security, and the effects of energy production and use on the environment. As a result there is an increasing demand for postgraduates specialising in this field.
This programme will provide you with unique expertise in the fundamentals of energy and the environment. Specialist modules provide knowledge and understanding of existing technologies as well as the ability to contribute to the design and development of new technologies and devices in this field, to develop new technologies to extract energy from diverse energy sources and to use existing and design new energy conversion devices as necessary.
