About the MSc in Renewable Energy course
The University of Hull is leading the way in renewable energies and low carbon futures through Aura and the Energy and Environment Institute. As the renewable energy sector expands there is huge demand for trained individuals to plan, implement and manage renewable energy projects with 27,000 new jobs expected by 2030.
The Humber is the UK’s ‘Energy Estuary’ and is rapidly becoming the focus of the renewables industry with great opportunities for industrial placements and career prospects – you could hardly choose a better place to study than the University of Hull.
You will gain a good understanding of a range of technologies, such as wind, tidal, solar and hydro-power, through both lectures and hands-on experience in the laboratory. You will develop an understanding of the key research and analytical skills relevant to renewable energy resource analysis, including GIS and industry software, as well as learning key professional skills such as project management, presentations and group work.
There is a strong industrial component, including site visits, guest speakers from industry and the use of ‘real-world’ examples building on the expertise of partners in Aura. The programme is also ideal for students interested in further research in this growth sector with research programmes led by the University’s Energy and Environment Institute.
