A challenge-driven programme sits alongside internationally-recognised innovation at the Birmingham Energy Institute that spans fundamental research through to industrial application.
To meet these aims, new technologies are being developed, but the systems themselves are also changing. People are needed not just to develop or deploy single technologies, but to understand the context in which they will operate. This interdisciplinary course is designed to cater to that need in a global context.
The Global Energy Technologies and Systems course from University of Birmingham take a systems-based approach to the provision, distribution and utilisation of energy in all forms. Course content is delivered from the School of Chemical Engineering in conjunction with the School of Physics and Astronomy and the School of Government and Society, by research staff who have backgrounds in academia, industry and policy.
