Course Information

This programme has been designed to provide you with a detailed knowledge of all major renewable energy sources and the engineering skills associated with them, including geothermal, solar, biomass, hydro, marine and wind. In addition, there are courses covering legislative, planning and economic considerations associated with renewable energy, and the integration of renewable energy to the grid.

The course included in this programme cover both the theoretical knowledge and advanced technical skills in demand from this ever-evolving sector. Teaching is by specialist staff drawn from our engineering school as well as from the energy industry, to ensure that students are exposed to the latest developments and future needs of the renewable energy industry.

One of the main features of the programme is its interdisciplinary nature, being suitable for students with mechanical, civil, electrical, chemical and other suitable engineering backgrounds. In special cases, the programme is also open to students with other relevant science backgrounds, including Physics, Chemistry and Applied Maths.

Aberdeen is known as the Energy Capital of Europe and is a major international centre of research and innovation in every aspect of the offshore oil and gas industry. In recent years, however, non-hydrocarbon based energy has grown significantly, mainly due to the large talent pool of energy engineers and scientists based in the Aberdeen region and the abundant wind and tidal energy resources off the Aberdeenshire coast. The city and region is quickly developing as a major hub for renewable energy.

In August 2016, Hywind, the world’s first floating wind farm was installed off the coast of Aberdeenshire by Equinor (formerly Statoil), while in 2018 work commenced on the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) in Aberdeen Bay, featuring the world’s most powerful wind turbine.
