Why choose this course?


Affordable energy, climate change, global warming and pollution control are the biggest challenges facing mankind.


Oil will run out in your lifetime, conversely the world’s energy demand continues to accelerate creating a 'perfect energy storm'.


Most of the words energy is driven by fossil fuel which releases large amounts of Co2 into the atmosphere creating climate change. New engineering and cost effective solutions will need to emerge, be manufactured and sold to help satisfy the need for energy and to tackle the many issues surrounding sustainability.


Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s degree in renewable and sustatinable engineering equip graduates with the skills and experience needed to face these challenges and to prepare for careers working with or developing new and innovative technologies.


A unique broad range of technology areas are covered including Renewables, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Construction and Business lectures with case studies and field visits. Previous visits have been to Electric mountain hydro scheme, Sustainable Building Envelope Centre, Centre for alternative technology, photovoltaic manufacturing/ research centres, Land fill, Renewable Wind, hydro and Biomass plants etc.


Developed by research-active staff with strong professional and academic experience, the courses have a focus on providing students with everything they need to find a job they want.


You can also choose to study this course as a three year degree (without a foundation year) BEng (Hons) Renewable and Sustainable Engineering UCAS Code: HH36
