Course summary

The REACT course will provide you with a detailed understanding of the key renewable energy generation technologies and the factors which influence their exploitation. It provides the foundations necessary to understand the principles of solar, wind, and marine energy technologies and also the knowledge required to understand: the efficient distribution of renewables; their integration into usage into zero carbon built infrastructure and to determine the economic and climate issues affecting the choice of renewable. Prior to your Summer break at the end of year one, you will be allocated your dissertation project. You will meet with your supervisor to discuss your dissertation and agree on the exact topic - this step enables projects to be well-aligned with your interests and those of your supervisor. Your extended project takes place throughout semesters one and two of your second year,giving you the opportunity to devote yourself to investigating an engineering challenge, and developing research skills of relevance to either future academic studies or work in industry. Extended projects will be available focusing on material from across the taught content of the REaCT MSc. Assessment of the extended project include participation in a mini-conference (poster, academic paper and presentation), an extended abstract, and a dissertation.
