It is imperative that greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, one way or another. This programme is for those who wish to play a part in contributing to that goal, whether through work in the energy industry or through the wider field of carbon management.
It covers sustainable energy generation technologies and systems of energy and carbon management, promoting the practical experience and problem-solving ability that will set you apart from others in this field.

You will study the rationale for pressing ahead with low carbon solutions and the specifics of several energy generation and conservation technologies, such as solar, tidal, wind, wave and biomass. A mixture of lectures, practical sessions, field trips, state-of-the-art online learning materials and frequent meetings with your tutors and employers, will provide a terrific environment in which to master this material.
Problem-based learning and coursework assessments will repeatedly take you into the role of professionals in the field; so that you gain first-hand experience in industry standard techniques and methods at domestic, community and commercial level.

This programme can also be studied as a one year top-up where you will complete Year 3 only.
