About

The Energy programme at Heriot-Watt University Dubai provides the opportunity for graduate engineers, scientists and corporate members of related professional bodies to acquire the  knowledge needed to meet challenges and develop opportunities within the energy industry.

Overview

The programme is directly related to the energy challenges facing every region of the world, including the Gulf region.

Heriot-Watt recognises that learning needs to be flexible and this programme allows experienced and recent graduates to tailor the programme content and structure to their specific needs. The University uses a virtual learning environment (VLE) called Vision, which can be accessed via the internet. Students will study courses and submit assignments through Vision at their own pace, allowing them to study for a recognised degree alongside their professional career.

Upon graduating from the master’s programme, graduates will meet the academic requirements for membership of the Energy Institute.
