Course summary

This new programme aims to train future engineers to lead the global energy transformation, by addressing critical challenges relating to climate change, clean growth, and sustainability. "The world is set to invest a record $1.8T in clean energy in 2023. This needs to climb to around $4.5T-a-year by the early 2030s to be in line with our net zero pathway" (IEA-2023). In the World Energy Transition Outlook, the phasing out of fossil fuels will be accelerated. In 2050, renewable energy will dominate the world's electricity generation supply. To achieve global energy transformation and meet the Paris Agreement, significant job growth is projected, with 42 million renewable energy jobs expected in the sector by 2050. If you're a recent graduate from an engineering-related discipline, this Master's course offers an opportunity to specialise and develop to become a future leader in this fast-growing sector. The programme will focus on:

  • providing you with knowledge, advanced methods and tools to address technical challenges in renewable and sustainable energy
  • developing your professional skills to solve real-world problems relating to renewable and sustainable energy technologies
Overarching themes of the programme include:
  • innovation
  • design
  • manufacturing
  • operations and maintenance
  • economics
  • modelling
  • optimisation
  • energy industry big data
The course is delivered in our Faculty of Engineering and Digital Technologies by an interdisciplinary team, including external industry partners. The content is research-engaged, with academic staff providing research expertise in sustainable energy-related areas.
