Course Description

About This Course

Be the energy engineer that the industry is asking for. Our highly commended collaboration with industry means that you’ll graduate with experience in the energy sector and the perfect mix of knowledge, contacts and sought after transferable skills.

Right from the start, you’ll have invaluable opportunities to mix with professional engineers through lectures, networking events and site visits. And you’ll find that our course material kept current by our Industrial Advisory Board is uniquely tailored to the needs of the industry right now, ensuring that our graduates are highly sought after.

Whether you’re looking for a change of career into the fast-growing world of engineering or to top up a first degree, this MSc is your unique route into the sector.


We’ve developed this MSc programme in partnership with industry and employers through close collaboration with the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) – aiming to address the national and regional shortage of high-calibre qualified engineering graduates with specialist expertise in energy engineering. The breadth of our course has also enabled some of our graduates to enter other engineering disciplines.

You’ll master fundamental energy and electrical engineering principles alongside a range of options in renewable energy, nuclear energy and oil and gas engineering. Ultimately you’ll recognise the long-term goal of renewable energy alongside the broader reality of a sustainable energy mix.

Throughout your course there will be many opportunities to mix with practising professional engineers during modules, at trade events, local branch meetings and on project work. Your most significant project will be your dissertation, where you’ll have the chance to do the practical element whilst on placement within the energy sector.

Upon graduation this enhanced experience puts you one step ahead of other graduates. Employers have identified that there’s a shortage of engineers in the energy sector, so graduates from our programme are in high demand and many are already in key positions.
