The challenge of transition is sizable. Some technological solutions do already exist, with the electricity sector transition well underway, and with wind, solar PV and electrification of heating and transport taking bold steps. Hydrogen, CCS and further energy efficiency improvements are also gaining prominence in the quest for a clean energy future. However, if we are to curtail and reverse greenhouse gas emissions in the energy sector within the next decade, tough business and policy decisions lay ahead. There should be plentiful career options post graduation for those who master the wave of the energy transition as it unfurls before us.
The Renewable Energy Management course at Coventry University aims to support persons looking to begin careers that will contribute to the affordable, reliable and sustainable delivery of energy-for-all. You will have the opportunity to develop skills to appraise renewable energy projects and explore how to strengthen governance structures, in order to accelerate the decarbonisation process – within communities, organisations and nationally.
The course is designed to have a strong international dimension, with emphasis placed on understanding the different approaches to energy provision based on climatic, social and economic conditions. Career options upon successful completion could range from conducting feasibility studies for renewable energy systems, to energy officer/auditor roles within commercial/government organisations, or analyst roles with companies involved in energy markets.
Work placement option
This master's programme provides you with the additional option to apply for a 'work placement' opportunity during your first semester with us for up to 12 months, extending the duration of your degree to 24 months. The 'work placement', which if secured, can be carried out in the second year and is designed to further develop your skills, knowledge and professional experience, with the aim of maximising your employability prospects upon successful completion of the course. Please note that the optional placement modules incur an additional tuition fee of £4,000, payable on completion of placement. Work placement opportunities are not guaranteed, and while you will be responsible for sourcing any opportunity, you will have the support of our Talent Team in doing so.
