Course summary

Meeting future energy needs is one of the greatest challenges facing the world in the twenty-first century. Emerging economies are leading a huge increase in global energy consumption, and demand is projected to rise further in the near future. We urgently need new supplies of affordable, renewable, sustainable energy. Our Sustainable Energy Engineering programme provides students with the tools and knowledge needed to tackle the greatest challenges regarding sustainable development and renewable energy sources. This unrivalled and innovative programme will place you at the forefront of one of the most important fields of the century. For your third-year design project, you’ll design and conduct an individual project to address a real-world issue related to sustainability and energy and learn how engineering can influence the way we build a sustainable society. In your third year you will also learn about the most important aspects of sustainable and renewable energy engineering including, sustainable energy systems, energy storage, vehicles for the future and waste minimisation. Students who choose to take the MEng degree will carry out an industry or research-linked project that focuses on solving real engineering research and design problems. In the fourth year of the MEng you will also learn advanced skills in sustainable and renewable energy topics such as solar energy conversion, electrochemical energy storage, biomass and wind energy and green hydrogen.
