Overview

Specialising in energy engineering with a focus on clean and renewable energy technologies for over a decade, the BEng in Renewable Energy Engineering at The University of Exeter is well established in providing graduate engineers to the sector. They offer excellent vocational training in the areas of renewable and clean energy, but with each programme tailored to your strengths and with a clear progression towards employability outcomes for each. 

Renewable energy is produced from sources that are replenished as they are used, such as the wind, water flowing in streams, rivers and seas, the sun and sustainably grown crops. In order to harness these sources and reduce our dependency on finite reserves of oil, coal and gas, renewable energy professionals need to understand the scientific principles of renewable energy technology and have the management skills to ensure that UK and international carbon emission reduction targets are met. They must also understand the effect of human activities on the environment and the socio-economic and business issues influencing delivery of the technology.

Careers

The degree programmes have been designed to include the knowledge and skills that potential employers in the energy sector have told us they require. A very high proportion of our graduates find employment in the renewable energy sector or study for a higher degree in the field.

Accreditation

This degree has been accredited by the Energy Institute (EI) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.
