The production and utilisation of energy have become a key global issue. Governments and industries are becoming more aware of balancing energy production and utilisation with the need to be environmentally conscious and energy efficient.
This degree programme addresses energy production, storage and utilisation, helping you to increase your understanding of the production and efficient use of conventional and renewable energy sources for power generation, and modern energy storage solutions, complemented with elements of energy economics. With DMU, you will develop a strong understanding of key principles in engineering, mechanics, electricals and electronics. Also, you’ll explore more specialised modules including Energy for Transport Applications and Low Carbon Energy Technology.
This course offers you the opportunity to enhance your employability and gain industry experience by undertaking an optional work placement. Recent placements have taken place at major companies such as Cummins, Network Rail and Caterpillar. DMU also places a strong focus on employability through industry relevant modules, covering topics such as policy and project management.
You can study Energy Engineering either as a three-year BEng (Hons) programme, or a four-year integrated Master’s MEng. At the end of year three, you have the option of graduating with a BEng (Hons) or continuing for a further year for a MEng, subject to meeting the progression requirements.
