Description

As the renewable energy sector continues to grow there is a need for trained individuals to plan, implement and manage new renewable energy projects. With the Humber, Britain’s ‘Energy Estuary’, rapidly becoming the focus of Britain’s renewables industry and offering excellent scope for industrial placements and career prospects, you could hardly choose a better place to study than the University of Hull. Developed in cooperation with industry experts, this vocational course is one of the only Masters degrees in the UK specifically designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to work in the renewables sector as a project manager or resource analyst.

You will gain a good understanding of a range of technologies, including wind, tidal, solar and hydro-power, through both lectures and hands-on experience in the laboratory. You will develop an understanding of the key research and analytical skills relevant to renewable energy resource analysis, including GIS and industry software, as well as learning key professional skills such as project management, presentations and group work. There is a strong industrial component, including site visits, guest speakers from industry and the use of 'real-world' examples. The programme is also ideal for students interested in further research.

There are three pathways available:

Renewable Energy
Renewable Energy (Resource Management)
Renewable Energy (Wind)

Requirements

So we would be happy to consider your application. Similarly, if you do not hold a degree but have relevant professional experience and training, we would welcome your application.
