The MSc in Energy Systems augments world-leading research from the Department of Engineering Science with contributions from the Departments of Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry and the School of Geography and the Environment. The course is designed for those who have a first degree in either engineering, the physical sciences, or geography and will be taught using a modular framework to ensure that students are able to progress at their own predetermined speed. The course structure is comprised of a combination of teaching methods: taught modules, a case study project, fieldwork (industrial visit), and a dissertation. The taught modules are divided into three different core themes: Resources, Systems and Services, exploring the production and supply of energy and the societal and political implications involved.  Each module is taught over 1 or 2 weeks, depending on the subject, and will be delivered in a lecture format.  These modules will also utilise innovative methods such as project-based and student led peer-to-peer learning with ample opportunity for discussion. Other elements include three extended assessed activities: a group-based industrial or public sector study project; a whole cohort output based on a specific energy-relevant visit; and an individual 15,000 word dissertation.  This approach is expected to provide students with an optimal balance of working with sector stakeholders to develop understanding from taught elements while broadening personal horizons.
