UK’s 1st energy transition masters at Aberdeen University

UK’s 1st energy transition masters at Aberdeen University : The University of Aberdeen has initiated what is believed to be the UK’s first postgraduate degree programme in energy transition systems & technologies.

The course hopes to train future engineers in sustainable energy practice & will draw from the research being administered within the University’s Centre for Energy Transition.

The programme will concentrate on the switch from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources, by way of the unification of low carbon technologies into current & future energy systems.

Programme Director Professor Russell McKenna stated: “This course was set up to fill a gap and meet a need. In recent years, non-hydrocarbon based energy has grown significantly in Aberdeen due to its large talent pool of energy engineers and scientists and the abundance of wind and ocean energy resources off the Aberdeenshire coast.

“Energy transition engineers are faced with the challenge of redesigning our entire energy infrastructure while ensuring continued access to reliable and affordable energy. To achieve this, we must understand how to successfully integrate low carbon technologies into our current and future energy systems.”
