Study type Taught


This exciting MSc programme draws on over 20 years of research expertise in the University of Hull’s Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies (CSET), to help students develop an understanding of the innovative new approaches to energy technologies that are essential if our society is to meet global zero carbon targets.

The climate crisis has brought a growing realisation that the way we generate, store and utilise energy must change and buildings have been identified as one of the 5 key challenge areas that must be addressed through innovation if we are to successfully reduce carbon emissions.

This MSc course will provide you with practical and academic experience in advanced energy technologies for building and industry application, taught by leading academics and industry experts. These include solar energy, sustainable heating and cooling technologies, ‘smart’ energy technologies, biomass, energy storage, heat pump & heat pipe technologies with an emphasis on the application in buildings and industry. You will develop an in-depth understanding of the mitigation and adaptation approaches to reduce carbon dioxide emissions with an emphasis on high efficiency energy technologies and management as well as expertise in physical and numerical modelling of advanced energy technologies.

This MSc course has been specifically designed in close consultation with industry to match the demands of employers. CSET has developed strong international, national and regional links with both industry and academia, which strengthens its research outputs and ensures this course is based on ‘real-world’ cutting-edge technology with a global focus. CSET’s links with the Energy and Environment Institute and the Aura Innovation Centre, the University of Hull’s low carbon support centre for SMEs, provide further expertise.

You will have opportunities to link with a range of our existing research projects as well as external agencies to gain practical experience in the development of advanced energy technologies, preparing them for a career in this exciting sector.

This course will help you understand technical, practical, and the latest advanced energy technologies along with their applications in the industry. You will join a cohort of like-minded students to share your experience and work together on projects and coursework of advanced energy technologies.

We aim to equip a new generation of leaders and provide you with the knowledge, skills, and experience to embark upon a career in the sustainable energy sector.

Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies (CSET)

CSET is based within the Energy and Environment Institute (EEI) – an inclusive community of over 100 researchers and support staff at the University of Hull, working on themes around mitigation of climate change and its effects. We work closely with faculties including Science & Engineering at the university and globally with external collaborators in academia and industry. The CSET is led by Professor Xudong Zhao, recently elected Fellow of the European Academy of Sciences and one of only five UK-based academics to be included in the engineering category of the Highly Cited Researchers Report 2017.
