Sustainable provision and use of energy is a major international challenge of the twenty-first century. The Energy and Sustainability MSc programmes have been designed to equip the next generation of energy professionals with the multidisciplinary approach required to tackle climate change while improving energy supply and the built environment.

The programme in Energy Resources and Climate Change offers distinctive modules specializing in bioenergy, energy resources, waste and the interaction between energy and the climate change agenda.

Programme structure

MSc programmes are being taught by Engineering and the Environment and Physical and Applied Sciences, both conduct world-class research within the University of Southampton.

Developed in collaboration with industry and public sector energy specialists, the MSc in Energy and Sustainability will enhance your career path and value to employers.

The module common to both programmes provides a broad overview of the ‘live’ issues surrounding sustainable energy and climate change of which all energy professionals should have a broad understanding.
