BEng (Hons) Energy and Environmental Engineering

BEng (Hons) Energy and Environmental Engineering

International agreements aimed at limiting environmental damage from traditional energy production systems are encouraging the development of alternative energy resources.

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.

This course has Incorporated Engineer accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Honours degree has partial Chartered Engineer accreditation. It is also accredited by the Energy Institute.
