Course summary

Society, industry and policymakers recognise that change is required at all levels if we are to address the challenge of climate change and sustainable development to meet the needs of future generations. At DMU, our Energy and Sustainable Development MSc reflects the knowledge and skills required by professionals working to achieve this. You will develop an understanding of how we can achieve more sustainable development and decarbonisation through sustainable energy, more efficient production, and organisational change. You will learn from leading academics and specialists in the School of Engineering and Sustainable Development, and invited guest speakers. You will graduate with the skills and knowledge to bring about change in companies, communities, organisations and government. This course is ideal for individuals with a social science, physical science or engineering background, or for mid-career professionals with relevant experience. Key features

Assessment method

All assessment is by coursework. Each taught module has two items of coursework. The first is a smaller assignment, on which prompt feedback is given while the module is being studied. A second, major assignment is submitted after the material has been assimilated. As well as the eight taught modules, students complete either an individual dissertation or a team-based design project, and all students get to attend the annual MSc conference, where final year students present.
