The sustainable use of energy is fundamental to the modern world. Our dependence on energy for transport, heating, lighting and business is ever growing, presenting many challenges in ensuring secure and economic supplies. At the same time, protecting the environment has never been more important than it is today. From the type of transport we use to how we treat waste, every organisation across the globe is being encouraged by governments to make more sustainable choices.

That’s why studying an MSc that advances your knowledge and skill set in real-world issues in energy and the environment will provide you with expertise that’s in demand across almost every industry globally.

Whether you’re from an engineering, scientific or technical background, our Energy and Environment MSc will equip you with specialist knowledge in critical areas in energy technologies and impacting environmental factors, preparing you to handle the complex challenges created by the growing energy demands of the 21st century.

You’ll study in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, which is actively involved in ‘internationally excellent’ research with a global impact. This gives us first-hand insight into the latest trends and issues in energy and the environment — much of which is fed directly into the course.

This means that, once you graduate, you’ll be fully equipped with the forward-thinking, relevant and topical knowledge you’ll need to pursue a wide range of career paths in both the private and public sectors.
