M.E Energy Engineering- The ME (Energy Systems) is designed as a “Second Cycle” (level 9) degree programme for graduates who have already completed a “First Cycle” honours (level 8) engineering degree of at least 3 years duration. It is aimed at those who require a recognised professional qualification in Energy Systems Engineering.Graduates with an honours degree in a mathematically-based science subject area may be eligible to take a tailored 2-year version of the programme, thereby enabling them to become professionally qualified engineers.The programme focuses on the interdependence between the electricity system, building energy systems, the industrial production system, the food supply chain and the transport system, taking account of security of supply and climate impact / CO2 emissions. Whilst there is strong focus on the operation of an electricity system which utilises a large fraction of wind generation, the programme is not restricted to renewable energy systems. For example, it includes modules dealing with nuclear power, fossil fuel extraction, hydrocarbon processing, combustion of hydrocarbon fuels and carbon sequestration and storage.
