UCC have developed a Masters in Engineering Science in Sustainable Energy, in recognition of the growing international market for sustainable energy systems and the shortage of qualified engineers. This programme is open to Engineering graduates of all disciplines with an 8 month programme option leading to a Postgraduate Diploma in Sustainable Energy.
The focus in this programme is on equipping the students with the information base and skill set to actively participate in this growing global market where energy/environment policy and technological innovation meet.
The students will choose 10 taught modules from a prescribed list and carry out a preliminary research project within the first 8 months from October. Those who obtain at least 50% in both coursework and research are then eligible to undertake a minor thesis (4 months - 30 Credits) over the summer, leading to the award of the Masters degree.
