Sustainable Energy Engineering involves applying the principles of energy conversion and use. The programme investigates renewable energy sources, such as wind energy, solar energy and other heat sources. You’ll learn about the design and operation of wind turbines, solar energy panels and other equipment associated with alternative energy.

Governments are trying to balance economic growth with protecting the environment. This programme is a direct response to the need to produce innovative graduates with qualifications in the energy field in particular. The first two years of the programme will introduce you to the fundamental areas of engineering. Modules in mechanical and electrical engineering are included along with specialist energy and traditional energy sources. In Year 3, you’ll specialise further in transport, efficient energy use and energy design. In your final year, you’ll focus more on smart technologies, simulation and project work.  The course will prepare you to work in the energy field by exposing you to the fundamental concepts of energy sources, generation, distribution, consumption and optimisation. You’ll also study more specialised topics such as green technologies, as well as national and international energy markets and how they relate to energy production, consumption and optimisation. 
If you’re interested in helping create a better world or just interested in the technologies, this course will set you on the way to a rewarding career in the energy business.
