This Sustainable Energy Systems programme offered at Queen Mary University of London will teach you the fundamentals of energy sustainability and the scientific, engineering and technical aspects of creating affordable, sustainable energy systems. We’ll give you the skills to become a specialist in this vital, rapidly expanding industry.


What you'll study

The need for new global supplies of affordable sustainable energy is perhaps the greatest single challenge facing the world this century. As a result, there is an increasing demand for specialists in sustainable energy.

On this Sustainable Energy Systems course offered at Queen Mary University of London, you’ll be at the forefront of innovation in this field. We’ll build on your existing expertise to give you a sound knowledge of the principles behind existing sustainable energy systems, including wind and solar energy, biofuels and energy storage technologies. You’ll also gain the skills to design and develop new technologies.

The course takes an interdisciplinary approach to the sector: you’ll gain skills in engineering and materials research, as well as economic and management insights into energy policy developments. This will give you an enviably broad understanding of the subject – and a wide range of specialist skills to boost your career.

You’ll also be integrated in to one of our research teams and work on an energy-systems-related project, supervised by one of our research staff. You’ll have access to our excellent facilities, enabling you to conduct cutting edge research that can lead to publication at scientific conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.
