Renewable Energy is the study of the energy sources of the future. It involves every aspect of the study of matter and energy, and forms the basis of the science, engineering and technology of tomorrow. A career in renewable energy is both rewarding and a positive contribution to the fight against global environmental damage.
This degree programme is designed to allow students to develop a thorough understanding of contemporary physics as applied to modern renewable energy science. The goal is to allow students to complete a physics degree with the skills and employment opportunities that entails but with an emphasis on the physics underpinning renewable energy.
