Description

Overview of the programme To meet the 2050 carbon reduction targets to control climate change, member states of the EU have signed legally binding targets to transition from traditional fossil fuel energy sources to renewable and sustainable energies.   This MSc programme offers a graduate a chance to access this exciting, dynamic and highly innovative field.   The programme provides an up-to-date overview of all the major renewable energy sources.  This includes the engineering skills associated with selecting, designing and installing the apparatus to capture, as well as store, convert and transfer it into useful forms.   The future of renewable energy will rely on innovative forward thinking businesses, politicians, engineers and managers and as such this programme also encourages creativity and entrepreneurship to produce solutions to real world problems.

Course programme

  • The programme looks at the engineering aspects of clean energy, energy economics and markets. The cost/ benefit/ tariff/risk analysis of renewables is compared with traditional fossil fuel and nuclear energy sources. Socio-economic, energy security and political issues are addressed as well as environmental factors of different energy sources.
  • The MSc in Renewable Engineering and Sustainable Energy is accredited by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Energy Institute (EI), and provides candidates the required training for registering for Chartered Engineers.

Full-time Mode (September Intake)

The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits.

The six taught modules will have lectures and tutorials/practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.

Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

Full-time Mode (January Intake)

For the January intake, students will study three specialist modules first during the second trimester from January to May.

Other three common modules the students will study in the first trimester of the next academic year from September to January. On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will be progressed to the Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.

Part-time Mode

The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered in two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year.

The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis. The dissertation element (i.e. Part Two) will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours.

During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
