Energy Engineering BEng - De Montfort University

The production and utilisation of energy has been a key global issue for many decades. Until recently the main focus has been to produce energy using fossil fuels purely for the economic development of nations, with little emphasis on environmental impact. Recently the outlook towards energy usage has changed. Governments and industries have realised that energy production and utilisation have to be balanced by being more environmentally conscious and energy efficient. This course will address theoretical and practical aspects of energy production, storage and utilisation. Energy Engineering BEng (Hons) is a contemporary engineering course that is strongly underpinned by traditional engineering modules, while at the same time providing specialisation in the utilisation and efficient use of conventional and renewable energies for power generation and modern energy storage solutions, complemented with elements of energy economics. During the degree you will gain an understanding of a range of topics, including: low carbon energy technology; product design analysis; advanced power systems; and green technologies. Energy and Sustainability at DMU was ranked second among modern UK universities in terms of the overall quality of its research, in the latest Research Excellence Framework 2014.
