This course provides a thorough grounding in the core disciplines of energy storage and is embedded in global best-practice, technology and the economics of its deployment. The course combines technology understanding with critical assessment of performance characteristics within energy market structures, giving graduates an expertise in sizing and selecting the optimum energy storage technology.
There are several career opportunities, development pathways, and progression platforms. In the United States, it is predicted that there will be over 350,000 energy storage jobs by 2025. The UK Clean Growth Strategy reports over 430,000 people are employed in the low carbon sector and 17,750 jobs are linked with the growing energy storage and electric vehicle industry.
There are a wide variety of roles in energy transmission companies, energy distribution companies, energy supply companies, consultancies, or public sector.

To apply to our postgraduate taught programmes, you must meet the University's General Entrance Requirements and any course-specific requirements.
These vary depending on the course and are detailed online.
(a) have gained:
(i) a second class honours degree or better, in the subject areas of science or engineering or related discipline, from a university of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, or from a recognised national awarding body, or from an institution of another country which has been recognised as being of an equivalent standard;
(ii) an equivalent standard (normally 50%) in a Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma or an approved alternative qualification; and the qualification must be in the subject areas of science, engineering or related discipline.
(b) provide evidence of competence in written and spoken English (GCSE grade C or equivalent).
In exceptional circumstances, as an alternative to (a) (i) or (a) (ii) and/or (b), where an individual has substantial and significant experiential learning, a portfolio of written evidence demonstrating the meeting of graduate qualities (including subject-specific outcomes, as determined by the Course Committee) may be considered as an alternative entrance route.

The MSc Energy Storage aims to prepare students for a successful career in energy or energy storage. In the United States, it is predicted that there will be over 350,000 energy storage jobs by 2025. The EU will support a new battery cell manufacturing industry with 200M Euro investment. The UK Clean Growth Strategy reports over 430,000 in the low carbon sector and 17,750 jobs linked with the growing energy storage and electric vehicle industry.
Students will have the opportunity to apply for a job or improving their position in energy transmission companies, energy distribution companies, energy supply companies, consultancies and at a regional or national government level.
Furthermore, employability is at the heart of Ulster University vision. The MSc Energy Storage will allow students to develop and enhance their employability skills. Employability is embedded within the modules rather than concentrating on specific modules.
