Course Information

  • The energy industry generates and distributes electrical power on a large scale, and there is a growing need to improve how we all use energy in our daily lives, to reduce our impact on the environment. Identifying renewable and sustainable energy sources are vital to preserving the world we live in, and finding new ways of generating energy is a challenge for society now, and in the future. If you want to have an impact and be at the forefront of this fast paced industry, this STEM course can help you understand the issues and develop your skills and understanding to help change the world we live in.
  • We aim to give you a good grounding in both electrical and mechanical principles. Not only that, we will also look at the commercial side of the industry to help develop your business acumen. You could develop skills in a range of power generation technologies, including:
    • Nuclear
    • Wind
    • Tidal
    • Solar
    • Traditional fossil fuels.
  • You’ll explore aspects of the energy industry, centred on large scale electrical power generation and distribution, while assessing the effective use of power by the consumer, micro generation schemes and combined heat and power systems. On top of this, we have excellent facilities for practical work, including our own wind and solar power facility, and you have the option to choose which facilities you want to work with, and focus on, in your final year project work.
  • While you’re studying we’ll try and give you as much real-world experience as possible. You have the opportunity to take a year-long placement, which could give you some great experience in the industry, and help build up your contacts too.
  • The degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) which means it meets the academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
  • By exploring the issues facing the energy industry and focusing on practical experience, this course has been designed to prepare you for a career in this important and boundary pushing sector.
