MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert Energy and Sustainable Development

De Montfort University

Overview

Accredited by both the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute, this course is designed to equip you for a career in the rapidly expanding field of energy, climate change and sustainable development.

Businesses, society and policy makers are recognising that change is required at all levels if we are to address the challenge of sustainable energy and development and meet the needs of future generations. At DMU, our Energy and Sustainable Development MSc reflects the knowledge and skills required by professionals working to tackle climate change.

On this course, you will develop an understanding of how sustainable development can be achieved and how we can deal with global climate change through sustainable energy, more efficient design and manufacturing, better management of buildings and organisational behaviour change. You will learn from leading academics and specialists from the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development (IESD), as well as a range of invited experts and guest speakers.

You will graduate with the skills and knowledge to lead communities, organisations and governments. This course is ideal for individuals with a social science or physical science background, or for mid-career professionals with relevant experience.

Teaching and assessments

Full-time students attend for two days each week and receive formal lectures from experienced researchers and teaching staff, complemented by informal seminars and group discussions. Part-time students attend one day per week. You will also be expected to undertake self-directed study. All teaching material is fully documented and available on the web-based virtual learning environment (VLE) before timetabled events take place.

Graduate Careers

Our graduates go on to work in a wide range of energy, buildings and sustainability roles in energy and environmental consultancies, non-governmental environmental organisations, central and local government (including the European Commission), and multi-national organisations. Some of our graduates stay on at DMU to continue their academic training with PhD studies.
