  • Course description

    One year (MSc), 9 months (Diploma)


    This course will provide an advanced MSc course in the rapidly expanding area of renewable energy engineering. The course is aimed at students wishing to develop critical understanding of the significant changes afoot in the energy system due to the development and integration of wind, marine, biomass and solar technologies. The course will provide graduates of a calibre capable of developing and implementing creative solutions to the problems encountered in renewable energy capture, conversion, storage and management.

    This course is concerned with the concepts, applications, design, development and deployment of renewable energy converters, and energy storage and demand management systems. The aims are to enable the students to:

        * develop detailed knowledge and critical understanding of the core skills in renewable energy resources, converters and systems.
        * develop and use a significant range of principal and specialist skills, techniques and practices in renewable energy
       * be able to apply this knowledge directly  to complex applications,
        * critically review existing practice and develop original and creative solutions to problems within the domain,
        * communicate and work effectively with peers and academic staff in a variety of tasks, demonstrating appropriate levels of autonomy and responsibility, and
        * plan and execute a significant project of research, investigation or development in a specialist area within the renewable energy arena, demonstrating extensive, detailed and critical understanding of that specialism.
