MSc Renewable Energy and Clean Technology / Careers

Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

In completing this multidisciplinary course you will become highly employable in an area of technology which will be of dominant importance in this century. The course will provide you with all the necessary skills required if you wish to continue to study for a PhD and contribute your own ideas to advance these key technologies. COVID-19 is changing how and when we use electrical energy, but electrical energy is still essential to society; to play, to work, to study, to shop, to cook, and for warmth. In 2019 the UK set a record for its power network being coal-free for 18 days and 6 hours, the longest period since 1882, and during this period, the renewable energy sector contributed 28% of our energy needs. From China to Chile, India to Indonesia, many countries across the world are making greater use of renewable energy sources, and have ambitious plans for increasing their use. Our graduates from REaCT (Renewable Energy and Clean Technology) are, and will continue to make their contribution to more efficient, lower-cost renewable energy technology, increased use of renewables, intelligent energy-efficient building design and advanced power system management and control.
