Degree Overview

As an energy engineer, you’ll be exploring cleaner, more efficient ways of using fossil fuels, while investigating and specifying the design of renewable energy developing systems using renewable and sustainable resources, such as solar and wind energy. You will also look at how local climate impacts on the design and selection of these systems, and consider their life cycle and carbon footprint.

The course focuses on learning engineering principles and practices, as well as computing skills and principles of design, relating to a wide range of energy systems. You’ll also learn methods of applying energy-efficiency in design, engineering practices and create more environmentally-friendly forms of industrial design and manufacture.

In year 1 you will learn fundamental principles underpinning both mechanical and electrical engineering sciences, and hands on practical skills. You will then progress on to year 2, further developing these fundamental skills while beginning to specialise in thermodynamics and mechanical engineering, while considering control and automation systems, key elements of design and engineering management skills. In year 3, you continue to specialise in your chosen field, gaining insight in to the design and application of renewable energy systems, detailed design and innovation practices and engineering applications. In your final year you will work on your honours project as well as gaining enhanced skills in analysis of energy efficient design in relation to building energy systems design, and power systems analysis.
