Developed in collaboration with industry and public sector energy specialists, this course will enhance your career path and value to employers.

You will also improve your knowledge of renewable energy technologies and geographical information systems. You have the opportunity to choose a module to suit your own interests.
The last four months of the course will be dedicated to research. You will complete a significant research project and may have the opportunity to work with one of our many industrial partners; typically a utility or energy consultancy, to develop your professional experience.
The degree will open the door to employment opportunities in large energy focused companies, consultancies and the public sector. Develop sustainable approaches to meeting our current and future energy challenges with the MSc Energy and Sustainability degree.
