MSc Renewable Energy Engineering 2 Years, 3 Months Distance Learning Part Time September
Renewable Energy 2 (Biomass) (EG501K)
This course is to provide an understanding of the issues as well as the uses applications and conversion technologies of biomass and bioenergy.
Fundamental Safety Engineering and Risk Management Concepts (EG50S1)
The course serves as the entrance to the field of safety and reliability engineering with the introduction of the basic concepts and tools of safety and risk management. Legal frames related to engineering safety are also introduced.
Contents include: Fundamentals of safety engineering; natural and man-made hazards; safety measures; accident and failure statistics; fundamentals of risk management; risk assessment techniques; classical reliability theory; modelling of engineering systems as series and parallel systems; redundancy; fault trees and event trees; availability and maintainability; UK safety legislation, including the Health and Safety at Work Act and its historical, offshore and other regulations.
Energy Conversion and Storage (EG551J)
This course is to provide an understanding of the need to and the efficiency behind conversion of energy from one form to another and the need to store energy in distinct forms, while minimising energy losses.
Legislation, Planning and Economics (EG551L)
This course is to provide an insight into the legislation, planning and the economics framework which shape UK, European and international energy provisions from conventional and renewable sources.
Electrical Systems for Renewable Energy (EG501H)
This course is to develop a broad understanding about the basic concepts in electrical engineering and power systems with emphasis on electrical systems used in conjunction with renewable power generation techniques.
Renewable Energy 1 (Solar and Geothermal) (EG501J)
This course is to provide an understanding of generation from solar and geothermal sources, the associated technologies and the main technical challenges.
Renewable Energy Integration to Grid (EG551K)
This course is to gain an understanding of advanced technologies applied for integration of Electrical Energy generated from non-conventional Renewable Energy sources to the grid.
Renewable Energy 3 (Wind, Marine and Hydro) (EG551H)
This course is to provide an understanding of the physical principles, technologies and systems associated with renewable energy generation from wind, marine and hydro sources. To provide an understanding of the position of these sources of energy in the current and future global energy requirements and the technical challenges in meeting the future energy demand.
Individual Project (EG5909)
This course enables students to write a dissertation on a topic of the student’s choice relevant to renewable energy.
