About the course
Gain the skills required to solve the environmental challenges in society and the wider industry. You’ll graduate equipped for a career as a professional engineer in the renewable, built environment and traditional energy industries. As an energy engineer, you’ll be exploring cleaner, more efficient ways of using fossil fuels, while investigating and specifying the design of renewable energy developing systems using renewable and sustainable resources, such as solar and wind energy. You will also look at how local climate impacts on the design and selection of these systems, and consider their life cycle and carbon footprint. The course focuses on learning engineering principles and practices, as well as computing skills and principles of design, relating to a wide range of energy systems. Youll also learn methods of applying energy-efficiency in design, engineering practices and create more environmentally-friendly forms of industrial design and manufacture. In year 1 you will learn fundamental principles underpinning both mechanical and electrical engineering sciences, and hands on practical skills. You will then progress on to year 2, further developing these fundamental skills while beginning to specialise in thermodynamics and mechanical engineering, while considering control and automation systems, key elements of design and engineering management skills. In year 3, you continue to specialise in your chosen field, gaining insight in to the design and application of renewable energy systems, detailed design and innovation practices and engineering applications. In your final year you will work on your honours project as well as gaining enhanced skills in analysis of energy efficient design in relation to building energy systems design, and power systems analysis.

Edinburgh Napier University is a public university in Edinburgh, Scotland. Napier Technical College, the predecessor of the university, was founded in 1964, taking its name from 16th-century Scottish mathematician and philosopher John Napier. The technical college was inaugurated as a university in 1992 by Lord Douglas-Hamilton, becoming Napier University. In 2009, the university was renamed Edinburgh Napier University.
Edinburgh Napier University develops students through the personalised learning and links to industry and find solutions to societal problems through research. It’s vision is compelling, to be an enterprising and innovative community, renowned internationally, with an unrivalled student learning experience. When students come to Edinburgh Napier University, they will study at one of the six specialist schools. Each of the schools is an impressive institution, with world-class facilities, academics, researchers and international links.
It participates in the Santander Universities SME Internship Programme, connecting talented students and graduates with some of the UK’s fastest growing, most exciting small and medium-sized enterprises. Postgraduate study is an opportunity to dive deeper into a subject student love, think bigger with specialist academic guidance, and lead change in the field students choose. The University has three campuses in Edinburgh offering advanced facilities for learning, teaching and research. Based in an iconic, prosperous city and a stunning, ambitious forward-thinking country, Edinburgh Napier is a great place to live, work and study.
