Student resources include a newly equipped renewable energy laboratory, field station and state-of-the-art IT equipment. Local commercial renewables developments are plentiful – the latest example is the UK’s first bioethanol fuel plant, a £50 million investment in the region. These, together with field trips and a 2-3 month work placement, provide a practical context that complements the taught programme.

We receive extensive industrial support from industry leaders including Bill Dunster Architects, Compact Power, Cornwall Light and Power, EDF Energy, Garrad Hassan, Geoscience, npower renewables, Ocean Power Technologies, Scottish and Southern Energy and Wardell Armstrong International.
