  • Objectives
    The MSc in Energy Conversion and Management is designed to provide you with a high level of engineering and technical expertise in energy conversion processes, combined with practical abilities in management-related issues. This course is tailored towards graduates in engineering, science and related disciplines. The strong emphasis towards science, technology and engineering is specifically targeted towards subject areas within the context of renewable and sustainable energy technologies and the built environment. However, the successful integration of energy technologies in the industry also requires highly effective management skills, economic appraisal, and an understanding of the current policies and regulations that can be applied within modern industry in the UK, EU and internationally. Advanced study in engineering-related research methodologies provides invaluable experience either towards further academic study or industry-based research and development.

    Course Content

    Through a series of core modules, the autumn semester includes topics such as:

    -renewable energy systems
    -energy and fuel cells with their associated applications
    -advanced topics of heat transfer, including numerical analysis
    -fuel combustion and pollution control, including Biomass systems,
    -the latest developments in management, policies and regulations at UK, EU and international level
    -air conditioning technologies

    The spring semester includes modules that cover:

    -energy efficient heat and power systems, such as CHP and Tri-generation technologies
    -economic performance and appraisal of energy systems and technologies
    -the applications and physical / engineering properties of sustainable building materials
    -advanced studies in cooling techniques and applications
    -the principles and application of fluid dynamics using commercial CFD packages (e.g. FLUENT) a detailed study of research methodologies

    Please note that all module details are subject to change.

    With the knowledge and experience gained during the course, you will then undertake an individual piece of high-quality research in the form of a dissertation over the summer months.

    Course Structure
    The MSc in Energy Conversion and Management can be taken on a full-time basis over one year (September to September) or part-time over two years.

    During the autumn and spring semesters, you will complete a total of 120 credits’ worth of modules taught by staff from science and engineering backgrounds.

    Finally, you will complete a written dissertation (worth 60 credits) on an individually chosen topic during the summer period at the end of the course.

    Graduates currently working in industry are encouraged to apply for part-time registration and work towards obtaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Registered part-time students are strongly recommended to be resident in Nottingham during the autumn and spring semesters.
