Energy Engineering

The world needs sustainable energy sources. This integrated Master’s degree gives you a solid grounding in the issues that energy engineers face. Successfully completing the MEng course allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject than the BEng course. It also means that you graduate with a Postgraduate level qualification, which can give you an advantage in the job market. The energy industry generates and distributes electrical power on a large scale, but there is also a growing need to improve how we all use energy in our daily lives. Renewable and sustainable energy sources are becoming more and more important. We aim to give you a good grounding in both electrical and mechanical principles. Not only that, we will also look at the commercial side of the industry to help develop your business acumen. In your final year we will give you the chance to work on projects, helping you to gain experience of leading teams and managing people. Nuclear, wind, tidal, solar, fossil fuels: this integrated Master’s degree looks at power generation, distribution and electrical and mechanical principles. Here at Huddersfield we have excellent facilities for practical work, including our own wind and solar power facility. You could choose to use the facility in your final year for project work. While you’re studying we’ll try and give you as much real-world experience as possible. You’ll be able to choose a year-long placement, which could give you some great experience in the industry, and help build up your contacts too, plus your Final Year has been designed to help you gain the confidence you need to become a leader in this vital area. The degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) which means it fully meets the academic requirements if you’d like to gain Chartered Engineer status (CEng). By exploring the issues facing the energy industry and focusing on practical experience, the course could prepare you drive development forward in this important and exciting sector.
