Energy Engineering (Hons) at De Montfort University is a contemporary course that is strongly underpinned by traditional engineering modules that at the same time provides specialisation in the utilisation and efficient use of conventional and renewable energy sources for power generation and modern energy storage solutions, complemented with elements of energy economics. 

About

The production and utilisation of energy has been a key global issue for many decades and until recently the main focus has been to produce energy using fossil fuels purely for the economic development of nations, with little emphasis on environmental impact. Recently the outlook towards energy usage has changed. 

Governments and industries have realised that energy production and utilisation have to be balanced by being more environmentally conscious and energy efficient. Energy Engineering BEng (Hons) will address theoretical and practical aspects of energy production, storage and utilisation.

Graduate Careers

The series of specialist modules in this Energy Engineering (Hons) degree at De Montfort University have been designed to include knowledge and skills required in the energy engineering sector. Students will have the ability to work in areas of production, utilisation, storage and management of energy; areas of design, research and development, environment control and policy making. Graduate careers exist in the conventional and renewable energy sectors and automotive industries, government and environment agencies.
