Engineering Net Zero at Cardiff University - UCAS

Course summary

The MSc Engineering Net Zero will provide you with key engineering and science-based knowledge and skills to deliver impactful decarbonisation solutions to tackle climate change in the wider society. The climate change emergency is happening now and we all have a duty to act immediately to mitigate against irreversible damage to our planet and way of life. Reaching net zero by 2050 means that we need innovative knowledge and skills across the engineering and scientific community to transform our high-carbon society to meet this challenge. This course brings together engineering and science graduates to collaborate on providing the cumulative change and transformation to our current practices which will lay the foundation for a net zero society. You will benefit from the outcomes of our latest research in decarbonisation, sustainability and net-zero carbon which are all key areas in addressing climate change. You will also learn from our collaborations with our external partners who are working with us to provide solutions to these challenges. The course will provide you with a range of topics as well as creative and innovative approach to engineering challenges and will help you to seek achievable sustainable solutions by employing a variety of skills, critical knowledge and understanding in a flexible manner as an independent thinker. You will lead the change in transforming society around a shared vision of decarbonisation. Core studies provide the opportunity to develop your problem-solving and critical evaluation skills by studying fundamental engineering and societal principles of decarbonisation whilst applying the knowledge and skills obtained to design and research-led problems. Optional research-led modules will allow you freedom to build your own portfolio of skills and knowledge, either by broadening your horizons or deepening your specialist area. To achieve change, we must do things differently and urgently – hence reducing carbon requires innovation in every part of the infrastructure value chain. In the past few years innovations in procurement and design have championed working within integrated teams with agreed objectives and commercial incentives to drive behaviour.
