Meeting tomorrow’s energy requirements will need professional engineers with an in-depth knowledge of how energy resources are processed, how they are managed and the impact energy generation has on the environment. Fossil-based fuels such as gas and oil continue to play a significant role in today’s global energy market. In addition, environmental developments with alternative energy sources mean that the technological background of engineers working in the energy sector needs to become much broader. This degree encompasses a range of technologies from oil and gas production, through to renewable resources
