This well-established course equips students with the technical and personal skills to meet the challenges posed by society's transition to a low carbon economy.
About this Course
The interaction of energy systems and their impact on the environment is increasingly important in today's society.
This course examines the design and operation of the energy systems that provide the environments in which people live and work. It addresses how quality of life can be balanced by the need for conservation of world resources, especially energy, and the protection of the environment. Society needs professionals who understand this balance and who seek to harness energy resources in an environmentally friendly manner.
You will learn about different energy resources - renewable, fossil and nuclear - and the systems that can be employed to harness these resources, such as combined heat and power schemes, heat pumps, solar capture devices, high efficiency condensing boilers, advanced materials and adaptive control systems. You will also learn about the impact energy has on the environment and how this impact can be reduced, particularly the technical relationship between energy systems and the environment, and gain confidence in using computer-based methods to address the complexities that underlie this relationship.
MSc: One year full-time, or part-time (typically two years). Postgraduate Diploma and Certificate qualifications are awarded to students completing selected parts, either on a full- or part-time basis.
Engineering or physical sciences degree or equivalent professional qualification.
