    Programme description

    The MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems is an interdisciplinary degree addressing the scientific, engineering and technical aspects of global concerns about the availability of energy sources, sustainability of these sources through exploitation of new technologies or preservation of existing sources, and environmental concerns. The impetus to specialise in this area stems from the large projected increases in global population and energy demand and is underscored by the need for new workable global supplies of affordable sustainable energy. These concerns elevate this energy need as perhaps the greatest single challenge facing the world in the 21st century. The current acute nature of the challenge results from the confluence of concerns about energy supply and demand, security, and the effects of energy production and use on the environment. As a result there is an increasing demand for
    postgraduates specialising in this field.

    This programme will provide you with unique expertise in the fundamentals of energy and the environment. Specialist modules provide knowledge and understanding of existing technologies as well as the ability to contribute to the design and development of new technologies and devices in this field, to develop new technologies to extract energy from diverse energy sources and to use existing and design new energy conversion devices as necessary.

    Course content

    The programme is structured into two core modules which each student must take, and additionally six elective modules and an individual project.

    Core modules:

        * Advanced Environmental Engineering
        * Research Methods and Experimental Techniques
        * Engineering Thermodynamics (depending on background)
        * Mathematical Methods (depending on background)
        * Research Project (four modules)

    Option modules may include:

        * Renewable Energy Engineering
        * Renewable Energy Materials
        * Sustainable Energy Economics
        * Advanced Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer
        * Combustion Concepts and Modelling
        * Advanced Propulsion
        * Piston Engines and Analysis
        * Advanced CFD
        * Advanced Aerodynamics

    Assessment

    The methods of assessment include coursework and formal examinations. Many modules will include continuous assessment and some or all of the work during the module will count towards the final mark. The Research Project will be conducted under close supervision during the summer term and is evaluated by thesis, presentation and viva examination.
