Energy Science MSc

The MSc in Science of Energy consists of six taught modules worth 10 ECTS each. These are structured around a cross-cutting introductory module.

These basics are complemented by essential "Economics of Energy" and "Principles of Energy Policy". 

Now with the ability to understand and analyse the competing aspects  of all of the essential science, engineering and economics pertinent to the energy discipline, the students proceed to Five specialised technically orientated core modules; "Conventional Energy Sources & Technologies", "Power systems, power electronics and electrical systems",  "Sustainable Energy Sources & Technologies I & II", and "Managing the impact of Energy Utilisation". 

With these modules completed and examined in the months September to April, students proceed to a 15 week research project worth 30 ECTS in a leading research laboratory or in industry in the months of May-August.
