Renewable Energy at a glance
Renewable Energy combines energy generation from renewable sources with aspects of dynamic energy management systems, ICT, smart energy technologies and energy storage solutions.
Our programmes are well established in providing graduate engineers to the sector - we are the UK’s longest running undergraduate course with over a decade’s worth of experience.
These degrees are engineering-focused to meet the needs of the clean energy sector, and also include business and managerial skills.
Links with a wide variety of companies allow us to offer these programmes with substantial backing from the industry.
Local commercial renewables developments, together with field trips, including a week long international trip and a 2-3 month work placement, provide a practical context that complements the taught material.
The University of Exeter has an excellent reputation and is highly regarded amongst employers. The renewable energy programme at the Penryn Campus was the first in the UK and has great ties with industry. The high employability rate of the renewable energy programme, combined with the importance of renewable energy globally was also important to me when choosing the course.
