About Sustainable Energy and Environment at Cardiff University

Amidst the introduction of new energy and environmental technologies, this course aims to train graduates that are capable of working across the interface of traditional disciplines and be effective in an ever increasing multidisciplinary environment.

Climate change, the global consumption of energy and the use of fossil fuels to provide us with heat, power and transportation are all engineering challenges which need addressing now and in the future. It is clear that solutions to these long-term problems ­– ensuring the best use of resources, and developing new more sustainable ways to produce and use energy – will require graduates who can work in an increasingly multidisciplinary environment.

This course will offer you the knowledge and expertise you will need in relation to sustainable energy and the environmental impact of energy systems.

The course aims to:

  • Produce postgraduate specialists who can demonstrate mastery of a broad spectrum of advanced engineering principles to real-life technological, financial, regulatory, managerial and ethical problems encountered in the Sustainable Energy and Environmental profession, and who are equipped to be key professional players in the wider industry, the professions, and public service.

  • Help students develop a comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to their own research or advanced scholarship.

    Testimonial from Zoe, Biosciences, UK, 2021, student at Cardiff University

    Cardiff really is surrounded by some scenic gems. It’s in the middle of everything and is so well connected with transport links that you can get pretty much everywhere and anywhere you want.

    Testimonial from Ellie, Journalism, UK, 2020, student at Cardiff University

    I chose Cardiff because it felt right. It was the first open day I attended and even on that first visit I just really liked the feel of the city, with it already feeling like home.
