The Renewable Energy and Clean Technology (REaCT) course focuses on the key areas which underpin the rapidly developing renewable energy and low carbon sectors. It will give you the skills and knowledge required to contribute to the design, development and planning of clean energy infrastructure - probably the greatest engineering goal of the 21st century.
The course is built around a core understanding of electrical power generation from solar, wind and marine sources and covers the interfacing and distribution technologies needed to exploit these sources. Equally, the impact of renewable energy will be diminished if demand and carbon emission are not reduced, these topics are key to the course.
This multidisciplinary course is geared towards teaching the skills needed by employers in a sector which is set to expand as fossil fuels decline and carbon emission is reduced. It will equip you with the tools required for research into future energy sources and low carbon technologies.
The REaCT course will give our graduates the depth and breadth of training which will prepare them to become involved in this technology revolution either by joining the renewable industry or by undertaking further research studies as part of a University of Manchester PhD programme.
This course delivers up-to-date topics on communications and microwave engineering. It covers wide-ranging and in-depth materials including digital communication, wireless communications, mobile networks, optical communications, adhoc networks, information theory, antenna design, microwave systems and circuit design and digital signal processing.
The programme is aimed at those with some previous undergraduate knowledge of communication and radio frequency engineering topics, wishing to enhance their skills to an advanced level compatible with a career in these industries. It also serves as an excellent introduction and training for further research leading to the degree of PhD.
