The Humber is the UK’s ‘Energy Estuary’ and is rapidly becoming the focus of the renewables industry with great opportunities for industrial engagement and career prospects - you could hardly choose a better place to study than the University of Hull .
You will gain a good understanding of a range of technologies, such as wind, tidal, solar and hydro-power, through both lectures and hands-on experience in the laboratory. You will develop an understanding of the key research and analytical skills relevant to renewable energy resource analysis, including GIS and industry software, as well as learning key professional skills such as project management, presentations and group work.
There is a strong industrial component, including site visits, guest speakers from industry and the use of 'real-world' examples. The programme is also ideal for students interested in further research in this growth sector with research programmes led by the University’s Energy and Environment Institute.
The Renewable Energy Masters programme provides the essential background knowledge and key transferable skills for students to gain employment in the renewable energy sector. The course covers all of the current renewable energy technologies and enables students to gain a comprehensive overview of the sector combined with the opportunity to specialise.
The course has been specifically designed in close consultation with industry to provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to work in the renewables sector as a project manager or resource analyst. Hull’s position on the River Humber – Britain’s Energy Estuary – makes us the ideal location for students hoping to pursue a career in the renewable energy industry.
This MSc degree is specifically designed to combine theoretical studies with hands-on practical work to make you highly employable for careers in industry, consultancy, government, academia or NGOs, both nationally and internationally.
The programme is also suitable as preparation for a PhD for anyone interested in further research in renewable energies.
