MSc Sustainable Energy Systems

MSc Degree Programme: 

The MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems provides graduates and working professionals with a broad training in, and understanding of, energy systems in the context of the sustainability of energy supply.

The program is grounded in Engineering and has a strong emphasis on energy systems where electricity is the final product. However, energy is also considered in the wider context of consumption patterns, efficiency, economics, policy and regulation.

While there is particular focus on the deployment of renewable energies in grid-connected systems, there are also opportunities to explore off-grid systems, on some of the optional courses and as part of dissertation projects.

Our MSc students actively engage in research as part of their dissertation projects. These are conducted across highly relevant and multidisciplinary themes within the Institute for Energy Systems – and increasingly across other institutes within the School of Engineering. In addition, there are opportunities to work with industry, and some students go on to join our PhD community afterwards.

This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Environment & Society Academy.
