Overview of the Renewable Energy Engineering course offered by Brunel University London
Meeting the increasing energy demands of growing populations and developing societies while reducing the use of fossil fuels are crucial challenges facing the global energy industry.
Along with a solid grounding in the core principles of energy production, you’ll get detailed knowledge of renewable energy technologies and systems, including solar, wind, tidal, wave, hydro, geothermal, biomass and hydrogen.
You’ll also look at the economic and environmental impact of renewable systems and at the legislative, planning and technical considerations of integrating them into the power grid.
We offer two study options. You can choose one-year full-time or three years via our distance learning programme.
Careers and your future
The graduates are working worldwide in senior technical and management positions.
The primary destinations are manufacturing industries, energy and environmental consultancy companies, energy advice and research centres, academia, and national and international non-governmental organisations.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and the Energy Institute, which means your postgraduate engineering degree will put you on course to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status in the UK.
