Energy Engineering (Hons) course from 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.
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.
You will be taught by a team of expert staff with excellent track record in teaching and in energy related research. You will be supported to gain a sound understanding of the principles of energy engineering, along with the development of design, problem solving and personal skills that will enable you to study successfully and embark on a rewarding career.
Teaching is delivered using a variety of techniques, including lectures, tutorials, case studies and laboratory classes. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) will be implemented to support your learning with easy access to lecture notes, recorded lectures and additional online learning materials.
The series of specialist modules in this degree programme 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.
