Core study areas include solar power, wind power, water power, biomass, sustainability and energy systems, subject specialisation at a second university and a major individual research project internship in a renewable energy company.

Entry qualification

Upper second class (2:1) honours degree in any engineering or physical science subject.

How you will learn

The European Masters in Renewable Energy is composed of three sections. It begins with a core first semester that presents modules in Solar Power, Wind Power, Biomass Energy and Water Power.

For the second semester students move to a second university to specialize in the subject shown below.  Finally, a major individual research project internship in a renewable energy company is carried out in the final six months of the Master’s degree.

Careers and further study

Due to the unique nature of the programme not only do students develop technical and scientific competencies in renewable energy, they also develop soft skills such as flexibility, adaptability, team spirit, and the ability to work in a multicultural environment, which are essential when working in an expanding global renewable energy market.
