This ME programme is for graduates of Level 8 BE degrees who want to develop their engineering knowledge for a career in industry or research based on energy systems applications. It is fully accredited to meet the education standard for Chartered Engineer (CEng) with Engineers Ireland, which is recognised throughout Europe and in many countries around the world. It builds on the successful BE in Energy Systems Engineering, providing graduates with an opportunity to specialise further or to broaden their knowledge in engineering disciplines.
Education is provided in three areas: advanced technologies in energy systems engineering, transferable skills for industry and/or research career in the energy sector, and technology development through an energy systems engineering project. Modules, subject to change, include the following: Transferable skills: Project Management, Environmental Economics, Engineering Finance, Engineering Research Methods, Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Lean Systems, Applied Statistics for Engineers, Advanced Applied Maths, Internet Programming, Database Development. Advanced Technologies: Global Change, Smart Grid Sustainable Energy & Buildings, Advanced Energy Systems Engineering, Computational Methods in Engineering Analysis, Advanced Finite Element Analysis, Coastal & Offshore Engineering, Design of Sustainable Environmental Systems I, The Built Environment, Integrated Engineering Design Project, Power Electronics, Advanced Power Electronics, Power Systems, Power Machines & Control, Communications Systems Engineering, Thermal Energy Conversion, Turbomachines & Advanced Fluid Dynamics, Combustion Science and Engineering, Advanced Mechanical Analysis & Design.
