Full-time - 1 year; Part-time - 2 - 2.5 years
The course content is designed to be relevant to international, national and local government energy policies and strategies, and will be of value to anyone working in an energy related engineering discipline. The primary focus of the course is for graduates in building services, mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering.
To apply for a Taught Masters postgraduate course at LSBU you need one of the following:
- IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 580 (Paper) or 237 (Computer) or 90 (Internet)
- Licenciado/Título de Ingeniero/Título de Arquitecto, average 6.0-6.9 (old grading system), or 1.5 in new grading system
For Postgraduate Diploma and Masters courses the normal entry qualification is an Honours degree or equivalent. For some Postgraduate Diplomas alternative qualifications are accepted along with relevant work experience. The University considers each application on its merits and is prepared to admit candidates who can demonstrate they have reached the normal entry requirements on the basis of prior experiential learning.
This course is for engineers who wish to develop their skills and knowledge in energy systems that will meet future energy needs. Such energy systems will need to be designed and implemented in accordance with principles of sustainability.
Present and take forward arguments for sustainability in the design and implementation of energy delivery systems
Provide you with a broad basis of advanced understanding in the technologies that deliver high quality energy services with minimum environmental impact
Design appropriate decentralised energy delivery systems, based on a range of criteria including environment, cost and engineering potential
Develop your understanding of policy, market and institutional factors that promote or constrain innovation.
An indicative list of topics covered on this course are:
Renewable energy technologies 1
Renewable energy technologies 2
Energy resource and use analysis
Energy engineering project
The emergence of sustainable energy technologies, together with targets for implementation, mean that specialist engineers will increasingly be in demand to specify, design and install these systems. Many engineering consultancies and energy service companies are developing specialist sustainability teams, and already there is a shortage of skilled personnel.
LSBU is committed to supporting you develop your employability and succeed in getting a job after you have graduated. Your qualification will certainly help, but in a competitive market you also need to work on your employability, and on your career search. Our Employability Service will support you in developing your skills, finding a job, interview techniques, work experience or an internship, and will help you assess what you need to do to get the job you want at the end of your course.
