Gain excellence in education - wherever you are!

Since its creation in 2001, This Master's course has developed a global reputation for quality, as accredited by IET and enables our part-time Distance Learning (DL) MSc students to gain the same learning outcomes as their on-campus counterparts .

Continued investment into the programme's resources and delivery has ensured that our MSc remains at the forefront of innovative teaching and technological developments.

As one of our DL students you will benefit from the most advanced set of e-learning tools, including a portfolio of virtual learning laboratories and simulation software. You will carry out experiments that mirror your on-campus equivalents, including our unique ‘world first’ PV Remote Lab, which allows for DL students to access and control a real physical laboratory!

On completion of the DL MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology, you will become one of our highly skilled graduates, sought after by industry and well placed to take advantage of the opportunities available within the renewables sector. 

The Programme:

  • Technical Background
