Relevant QAA Subject Benchmark Groups:
At the end of the programme students should be able to:
- demonstrate in-depth, specialist knowledge and mastery of techniques relevant to the areas of energy and environmental engineering
- demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of, and an ability to critically analyse, concepts, information and techniques at the forefront of energy and environmental engineering
- exhibit mastery in the exercise of generic and subject-specific intellectual abilities
- demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to their own research
- take a proactive and self-reflective role in working and develop professional relationships with others
- formulate ideas and hypotheses and to develop, implement and execute plans to evaluate these
- evaluate current issues, research and advanced scholarship in energy and environmental engineering.
The programme, one of only a handful in the UK HE sector, equips graduates with advanced skills in a wide range of energy and environment-related issues, thereby enhancing their career prospects in these sectors of industry. The programme is designed to enable students with a range of science and engineering backgrounds to convert to a specialisation in energy and environmental engineering, through an appropriate combination of compulsory and optional modules.
The MSc programme consists of a number of compulsory and optional modules as well as a major research project, totalling 180 credits. The taught modules cover a range of advanced topics and current process technologies such as renewable sources of energy, efficient methods of energy production and usage, treatment and control of solid/liquid/gaseous wastes, alternative fuels, and the assessment of the environmental impact of power generation, process heating and transport, including climate change and air quality.
There is also the opportunity to satisfy particular interests through the research project topic. The project accounts for one-third of the credits/marks for the MSc programme and enables students to gain experience of planning, executing and reporting on work of the type they will undertake in an industrial or academic environment.
