  • Course description
    Course Description:

    The MSc in Renewable Energy Technology develops professional engineers and scientists with the multidisciplinary skills and ability to analyse current and future energy engineering problems, and design and implement appropriate solutions, taking into account the social, environmental, technical, regulatory and commercial issues and constraints. Cranfield is a respected provider of energy related research and teaching, which represents about 10% of the University’s income. Students benefit from dedicated state-of-the-art facilities including unique engineering-scale facilities for the development of efficient technologies with low CO2 emissions.

    Start Months:

    Full-time: October. Part-time: throughout the year.

    Full-time/Part-time: Full-time/Part-time

    Entry Requirements:

    A first or second class UK Honours degree (or equivalent) ideally in a related subject. Other recognised professional qualifications or several years relevant industrial experience may be accepted as equivalent; subject to approval by the Course Director. For further and specific information please visit the course page. 

    Duration:

    Full-time MSc - one year, Part-time MSc - up to three years, Full-time PgCert - one year, Part-time PgCert - two years, Full-time PgDip - one year, Part-time PgDip - two years

    Course format:

    MSc/PgCert/PgDip

    Overview:

    Production from conventional oil resources has peaked and similar peaks will occur in the future for natural gas and coal. Use of renewable resources and application of renewable energy technologies is likely to play a major role in future energy supply. 

    Who is it for?:

    The MSc course comprises eight assessed modules, an integrated group project and an individual project. Students undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) complete the eight modules and the group project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students complete six modules, a project and a personal development portfolio.

    This course develops professional engineers and scientists with the multidisciplinary skills and ability to analyse current and future energy engineering problems. In addition you will be equipped to design and implement appropriate solutions for these issues, taking into account the social, environmental, technical, regulatory and commercial issues and constraints.
       
    Why this course?:

    Evidence is growing that production from conventional oil resources has already peaked and that, at current usage rates, similar peaks will occur in the foreseeable future for natural gas and coal. 

    Developed economies now face a number of challenges in procuring energy security and responding to energy pricing and affordability issues, as well as dealing with contributions to carbon emissions in line with the UK Government’s ambitious targets of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

    Students benefit from dedicated state-of-the-art facilities including unique engineering-scale facilities for the development of efficient technologies with low CO2 emissions.
