MSc Energy Engineering with Industrial Management

Course overview 

We're becoming increasingly concerned with our impact on the environment around us.  The world has a limited amount of resources and our energy demands are only growing; to address this efforts are being made to change the way we produce and consume energy and dispose of waste. On the MSc (Eng) Energy Engineering with Industrial Management you'll become the next generation of engineers and managers for in-depth understanding of the environmental impact of different energy choices.

This course is aimed at graduates and professionals who want to take up a role within energy management or require an advanced knowledge of the subject. You will have a thorough understanding of energy engineering and management by combining theoretical aspects of the discipline with hands on practical experience, ensuring you are well-equipped to enter and succeed in a wide range of career areas. The programme provides an increased breadth and depth of study with additional emphasis on:

  • industrial application
  • team working
  • use of industrially-relevant applications of engineering analysis
  • independent learning and work.

The MSc (Eng) in Energy Engineering with Industrial Management is offered on a full-time basis over one year, starting in September. You will be allocated an academic supervisor who will provide advice and guidance throughout your period of study.

The course is modular, allowing students some flexibility in the design of their degree. The MSc (Eng) consists of:

  • 8 core modules
  • optional modules (must choose 2)
  • a major research project

Please note that the course details set out here may change before you start, particularly if you are applying significantly in advance of the course start date.
