Renewable Energy Engineering MSc is one of the best courses offered by Coventry University. This course is mainly designed for students who are interested in supporting the renewable energy industry. The rapid growth to tackle the severe issues posed by climate change.
The exploration of current and emerging technologies and applications for renewable energy, successful completion of this course should prepare you to make significant contributions to your profession, the economy, and society.
This course aims to address the need for skilled energy engineers. The opportunity to develop a systematic understanding of knowledge, analytical techniques and research skills related to an MSc in Renewable Energy Engineering.
The Coventry University is committed to providing a global educational experience, which is reflected throughout the teaching experience. The course has previously recruited diverse international graduates and promotes multicultural experiences.
Extended supply chains and energy security in the context of sustainability and energy management will be considered throughout the course. Case studies for both developing and developed countries will be an area of focus, with teaching activities supported by international research projects. Group work and guest lectures (subject to availability) from visiting international academics will be used to provide the opportunity to develop intercultural skills and experience.
This course is accredited1 and recognised by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and Chartered Management Institute.
Institution of Mechanical Engineers
This degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and including the 2025 intakes under license from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognized by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
Students completing an IMechE accredited degree are deemed to have met part or all of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and are in a strong position to move on to achieve professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry.
The accredited MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.
It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, that do not also have an appropriately accredited Honour’s degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their qualifications individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
Chartered Management Institute
This course will undertake a professional development module which is currently accredited by the Chartered Management Institute for the 2022-23 intake on Coventry University. Upon successful completion of the module, will gain the CMI Level 7 Certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership Practice without any additional cost Coventry University’s accreditation with CMI is currently ongoing for the relevant modules and is regularly reviewed and monitored by the CMI through their quality systems. Whilst Coventry University anticipates that these reviews will continue to be successful, if they were to be unsuccessful, the relevant module in this course would no longer be accredited and we would notify applicants and students of this change as soon as possible.
Select and apply appropriate systematic analysis methods to critically evaluate and solve complex renewable energy engineering problems.
Analyse different energy resources and conversion processes using analytical modelling, experimental techniques and numerical simulations.
Critically access the use of renewable energy systems to mitigate climate change and improve the environment and social welfare
Make and justify decisions for selecting and optimising renewable energy products and systems based on technical, environmental, economic, risk and social criteria.
Develop innovative solutions to meet the current global sustainability and renewable energy challenges.
Globally, the total renewable energy capacity has quadrupled total renewable energy capacity has quadrupled in the last ten years. More than half of all added power generation came from renewables. Increases in growth are still needed if global renewable energy targets are to be achieved.
