New and Renewable Energy

Course Description

The MSc in New and Renewable Energy is designed to equip our graduates with the skills required to meet the growing challenge to achieve energy and environmental sustainability through the application of new and renewable energy technologies. The programme aims to enable students to develop the capacity to solve problems across the traditional Engineering boundaries and to have an appreciation of complete energy systems from source to end user, to have knowledge of the relevant technologies and to understand the interactions between them. The programme also provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in research, development, design and project management through individual and team-based project work.

Course Structure
The programme consists of four core modules to provide a solid foundation in a broad range of New and Renewable Energy technologies and three optional modules that allow students to choose more specialised study programmes that are most suited to their interests. The modules include lecture courses, a group design project and a major, individual research and development project. The course starts in September with a month long 'fundamentals' module which prepares students from different backgrounds to take full advantage of the courses modules that follow and which combines lectures, tutorials and laboratory experiments.

Core Modules
- Renewable Energy Fundamentals
- Renewable Energy and Environment
- Group Design Project
- Research and Development Project.

Optional Modules
Students select three of the following optional modules:
- Low Carbon and Thermal Technologies
- Turbomachinery and Nuclear Power Engineering
- Energy Delivery and Network Integration
- Energy Generation and Conversion Technologies
- Energy Markets and Risk
