What is covered?

  • Project Management
  • Energy and Environment
  • Liquid Bio-fuels Production Systems
  • Small Hydropower Technology
  • Hybrid Electric & Grid Connected Systems
  • Entrepreneurship, etc.


Who is it for?

  • For persons interested in becoming highly qualified engineers capable of identifying and providing solutions to technological problems in the renewable energy sectors and persons with the desire for self-employment to harness and processing natural resources.


Benefits to you

  • Students will be helped to appreciate the constraints and opportunities provided by renewable energy resources within pre-existing energy systems, societies, markets and regulatory frameworks.
  • Candidates will be provided with the knowledge of technical characteristics and resource evaluation of some of the major renewable power sources (wind, solar, tidal and wave), and the theory underpinning their operation and performance.
  • Students will have the ability to develop preliminary technology assessments and exploitation plans for tidal and wave, and preliminary design and dimensioning for wind and solar (thermal or photovoltaic) systems (which are more mature technologies than tidal and wave).
  • Students will be provided with an understanding of the engineering aspects of power conversion for electricity grids, in particular, concerned with the connection of renewable power sources, supported by calculations.
  • Students will understand the problems of energy distribution and major economic theories describing the markets in which renewable energies are deployed.

Students will be provided with an ability to conduct a critical analysis of competing claims in the energy sector, and evaluate options for energy supply, distribution and utilization (including renewable and non-renewable) and to appraise the environmental sustainability of energy systems.


What is covered?

  • Project Management
  • Advanced Chemical Thermodynamics
  • Fuel & Energy Technology
  • Bio-Processing Technology
  • Chemical Reaction Engineering
