The world is in a state of climate emergency, and urgent action is needed now to meet the UN’s commitment to achieving net zero by 2050.

To transition to a net zero world, we need to transform how we consume, produce and travel. But to achieve this, we need innovative thinkers with the right knowledge and expertise who can provide creative solutions to combat one of the world’s greatest challenges – not just reducing carbon emissions, but cutting them to zero.

Our new MSc in Engineering Net Zero, launching in September 2023, is aimed at students who are innovative change-makers, who want to contribute to – and even lead – the new energy transition. It’s a response to the increasing need for graduates with the engineering and science-based knowledge to develop realistic solutions that will transform our current high-carbon society.

Students on the course will experience teaching informed by research in key areas and problems within climate change. Interdisciplinary in nature, students from different backgrounds will be encouraged to work together, reflecting the ways in which recent innovation has been driven by integrated teams working towards shared objectives. The programme also offers the opportunity to engage with engineering organisations on real industry-relevant problems and projects.

Students with undergraduate degrees in science or engineering are all welcome to apply for this new MSc. It’s an opportunity for students to collaborate, develop and learn skills to transform current practices and to lay the foundation for a net zero society.We have strong links with our industrial partners which will enhance our students’ employability skills and opportunities to network. The course will open up opportunities across the globe with many industries seeking these leading skills in sustainability and the renewable energy sector.
