More about the course

This course offers the perfect balance between industrial and academic experience giving you the opportunity to develop core transferable skills alongside technical and industry knowledge. You will learn Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Science, and Green Energy and Sustainability and professional development will be encouraged through the use of two Work-based projects.

This course includes optional modules, enabling you to pick a pathway that is right for you!

Develop a deep understanding of advanced engineering technologies, applying and demonstrating your understanding of Hydraulic Systems, Wind Turbine Design, Power Transmission Systems and Energy Transfer. You will develop the level of understanding of the Energy Industry needed to support both regional and national engineering businesses.

The FdEng in Energy Engineering is mapped to the latest version of the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) by the Engineering Council and Institute of Engineering Technologies (IET).
