    The University of Birmingham, as a partner in The Midlands Energy Graduate School (MEGS), has launched a new taught Masters in Efficient Fossil Energy Technologies.

    Consisting of core and optional modules, delivered by experts from the universities of Nottingham, Birmingham and Loughborough, this MSc will encourage and embed excellence in fossil energy technologies, carbon capture and efficient combustion. It will prepare future leaders and industrial engineers with knowledge and skills to tackle the major national and international challenges of implementing new fossil-based power plant and processes more efficiently, with near zero emissions and CO2 capture.


    Applicants will hold, or be expecting to hold, a first class or upper second class Honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant engineering subject. This may be Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering or Mechanical Engineering. Relevant, significant, industrial experience may be considered.
    International students:

    Above-standard English language requirements apply
    English Language requirements are as follows
    IELTS: minimum 6.5 in all bands
    PTE Academic: no less than 67 in all 4 skills


    This programme will encourage and embed excellence in fossil energy technologies, carbon capture and efficient combustion. It includes modules on power generation and technologies, industrial case studies, economics of energy and innovation and allows students to assimilate the contextual issues surrounding fossil-based energy alongside technical aspects. Coupled with the major research project, this core will thus promote enquiry-based learning which will be supplemented by a range of optional technical and contextual/managerial modules.

    Salidas profesionales

    Graduates of this programme will be in demand by power generation companies and partner organisations working on technologies for a near-zero-emission power plant. There is a world-wide demand for engineers and scientists with high-level education and skills in energy technologies, focussing on fossil fuels, as coal-fired power stations continue to be commissioned, built and operated. This programme also provides an entry route to progress to PhD study, upon successful completion (minimum grades apply).
