The M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems is designed to produce graduates with a good theoretical and practical understanding of renewable energy technologies. The programme critically investigates the energy output from wind, solar, ocean and biomass technologies from a technical and economic viewpoint.
The primary aim of the M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems is to produce effective engineers and technical workers for a professional career in energy and, in particular, renewable energy.
The programme spans a minimum of three semesters, i.e. beginning in September of the first year and ending in following September (one calendar year).
Graduates of the M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems programme will be equipped with the skillset and knowledge for crucial roles in research, design and development in companies in the energy sector.
Graduates from this programme have obtained employment from a vast variety of companies throughout Ireland and further afield. Also, some graduates have decided to pursue further study in the energy domain to PhD level, at Dundalk Institute of Technology and other universities.
Graduates may progress to research PhD programmes either in DkIT or other institutions.
