The M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems is designed to produce graduates with a sound theoretical and practical understanding of renewable energy technologies. The programme critically investigates energy production from wind, solar, ocean and biomass technologies from a technical and economic point of view.
The main objective of the M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems is to train effective engineers and technical workers for a professional career in energy and, in particular, in renewable energy.
The programme covers a minimum of three semesters, i.e. it starts in September of the first year and ends in the following September (one calendar year).
→ Introduction to renewable energies (compulsory)
→ Wind energy 1 (mandatory)
→ Solar energy 1 (mandatory)
→ Water Power 1 (required)
→ Bioenergy 1 (compulsory)
→ Energy policy and economics (compulsory)
→ Renewable grid integration (mandatory)
→ Research methods (compulsory)
→ Wind energy 2 (elective, i.e. not mandatory)
→ Ocean Energy (elective, i.e. not compulsory)
→ Solar energy 2 (elective, i.e. not compulsory)
→ Bioenergy 2 (elective, i.e. not compulsory).
Graduates can progress to research doctoral programmes at DkIT or other institutions.
Graduates of the M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems program will be equipped with the skill set and knowledge for crucial roles in research, design and development in energy sector companies.
Graduates of this programme have gained employment in a wide variety of companies in Ireland and beyond. In addition, some graduates have chosen to continue their studies in the energy domain up to PhD level, at Dundalk Institute of Technology and other universities.
The M.Sc. degree covers a minimum of three semesters. This includes two semesters of teaching and one semester devoted to thesis writing.
