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.
