About the course

The energy industry generates and distributes electrical power on a large scale, and there is a growing need to improve how we all use energy in our daily lives, to reduce our impact on the environment. Identifying renewable and sustainable energy sources are vital to preserving the world we live in, and finding new ways of generating energy is a challenge for society now, and in the future. If you want to have an impact and be at the forefront of this fast paced industry, this STEM course can help you understand the issues and develop your skills and understanding to help change the world we live in.

This integrated Master’s degree gives you a solid grounding in the issues that energy engineers face. Successful completion of the MEng course allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject than the BEng course. It also means that you graduate with a Postgraduate level qualification, which can give you an advantage in the job market.

We aim to give you a thorough understanding of both electrical and mechanical principles. Not only that, we will also look at the commercial side of the industry to help develop your business acumen. In your final year we will give you the chance to work on projects, helping you to gain experience of leading teams and managing people.

This integrated Master’s degree looks at power generation:

  • Solar
  • Wind
  • Tidal
  • Nuclear
  • Traditional fossil fuels

You’ll explore aspects of the energy industry, centred on large scale electrical power generation and distribution, while assessing the effective use of power by the consumer, micro generation schemes and combined heat and power systems. On top of this, we have excellent facilities for practical work, including our own wind and solar power facility, and you have the option to choose which facilities you want to work with, and focus on, in your final year project work.

While you’re studying we’ll aim to give you as much real-world experience as possible. You’ll be able to choose a year-long placement, which could give you some great experience in the industry, and help build up your contacts too, plus your Final Year has been designed to help you gain the confidence you need to become a leader in this vital area. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national competitions like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student,UAS and the Railway Challenge (or comparable design and build team projects). In addition, our Institute of Railway Research (IRR) within our Department of Engineering have been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for ‘innovative research in railway engineering to improve safety and efficiency through technological developments'. This is one of the most coveted distinctions in UK Higher Education.

The degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) which means it fully meets the academic requirements if you’d like to gain Chartered Engineer status (CEng).

By exploring the issues facing the energy industry and focusing on practical experience, this course will prepare you to drive development forward in this important and boundary pushing sector.

Your career

Previous graduates from courses in this subject area have gone on to work in a variety of roles such as new product reliability engineer, design engineer, lead structural test engineer and pipeline engineer in organisations including Cummins Inc, Weir Power & Industrial, Jaguar Land Rover and Shell.

Additionally, you may gain skills that are transferable to other industries and may be able to pursue a career that requires a good honours degree. You could also go on to further study and the University has many options available for postgraduate study which may interest you.
