Environmental Management (Energy)

University of Stirling


Stirling Campus


MSc Environmental Management (Energy) is a specialised pathway within the core MSc Environmental Management degree.

Britain seeks to be a world leader in renewable energies and its generating potential is recognised globally, but it is equally renowned for the quality of its natural environment. This creates the potential for conflict. As a result, we need to better understand the various environmental costs associated with 21st-century energy technologies, whether renewable or non-renewable, and how these costs can be evaluated, managed and mitigated.

The course draws on the university's existing expertise and research strengths in environmental impact assessment, carbon trading, planning and impacts of wind, hydro and nuclear power, as well as its expertise in energy management and environmental economics.

You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert Environmental Management (Energy)

You can exit after stage 2 with PgDip Environmental Management (Energy).
