Course summary

The MSc Renewable Energy Management course has been designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience needed to access the growing renewable energy jobs markets and aims to help facilitate the global energy system transition. The ways that we currently source and consume energy need to be transformed if we are to avoid the worst consequences of climate and ecosystem breakdown. The challenge of transition is sizable. Some technological solutions do already exist, with the electricity sector transition well underway, and with wind, solar PV and electrification of heating and transport taking bold steps. Hydrogen, CCS and further energy efficiency improvements are also gaining prominence in the quest for a clean energy future. There should be plentiful career options post-graduation for those who master the wave of energy transition as it unfurls before us.The Renewable Energy Management MSc course aims to support persons looking to begin careers that will contribute to the affordable, reliable and sustainable delivery of energy for all.
