Summary

About This Course

Be the energy engineer that the industry is asking for. Our highly commended collaboration with industry means that you’ll graduate with experience in the energy sector and the perfect mix of knowledge, contacts and sought after transferable skills.

Right from the start, you’ll have invaluable opportunities to mix with professional engineers through lectures, networking events and site visits. And you’ll find that our course material kept current by our Industrial Advisory Board is uniquely tailored to the needs of the industry right now, ensuring that our graduates are highly sought after.

Whether you’re looking for a change of career into the fast-growing world of engineering or to top up a first degree, this fully accredited MSc is your unique route into the sector.

Overview

We’ve developed this MSc programme in partnership with industry and employers through close collaboration with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) – aiming to address the national and regional shortage of high-calibre qualified graduates in the field of engineering.

You’ll master fundamental energy and electrical engineering principles alongside specific modules in wind, oil and gas – plus options to focus on conventional energy or future developments. The option in environmental risk assessment exploits our links with the word-renowned School of Environmental Sciences. Ultimately you’ll recognise the long-term goal of renewable energy alongside the broader reality of a sustainable energy mix.

Throughout your course there will be many opportunities to mix with practising professional engineers during modules, at trade events, local branch meetings and on project work. Your most significant project will be your dissertation, where you’ll have the chance to do the practical element whilst on placement within the energy sector.

Upon graduation this enhanced experience puts you one step ahead of other graduates. Employers have identified that there’s a shortage of engineers in the energy sector, so graduates from our programme are in high demand and many are already in key positions.

We have been accredited by the Energy Institute (EI) as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. And our affiliate membership with the EI provides you with free student membership and a free magazine.

The course is delivered by the Faculty of Science – which houses an impressive base of engineering knowledge, particularly in the Schools of Mathematics, Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Computing Sciences and Chemistry. We are internationally renowned for our research and teaching in many relevant fields, including Applied Mathematics, Energy Materials, Energy Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, and Geophysical Sciences, to name a few.
