MSc/PG Dip Renewable Energy Engineering with optional placement


Course Description

This course is an advanced MSc course in the area of renewable energy engineering, with an emphasis on the design, analysis and implementation of renewable energy projects. The course is designed to help you develop critical understanding that you can apply to assist the wide range of renewable energy industries. The course will equip you with the engineering knowledge and practical skills necessary to develop and implement creative solutions to engineering problems encountered in renewable energy capture and conversion, system design and analysis, project development and implementation.

You will use lab and field-testing facilities for measuring and monitoring performance of different renewable energy systems, such as wind turbines, photovoltaic power systems and heat pumps. You will also learn to use tools for component and system design, simulation of the performance and monitoring of renewable energy systems. These tools include Matlab/Simulink, ANSYS and SciLab for wind turbine blade design and CFD, GH WindFarmer and WAsP for wind farm design, PVsyst for photovoltaic system design and Labview for system monitoring.

The course is suitable for students with a science or engineering background.
