The MSc Sustainable Energy & Green Technologies enables you to focus on advanced education and training in the development and optimisation of renewable energy resource exploitation, the efficiency in energy generation and utilisation pathways (including energy conservation), the mitigation of environmental impacts, and preparation for business innovation and job creation opportunities in renewable energy systems technology development, plant biotechnology and entrepreneurship. The programme is underpinned by the best European practice by incorporating compatible EU policy drivers such as the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) for energy research, current R&D in crops (through ongoing and research initiatives under the Charles Parsons Energy Research programme), and the collaboration with internationally acknowledged experts in the subject domains from universities, research institutions and industry. This programme enables you to maintain relevance of academic and research training, and therefore enhance your employability in the area of sustainable energy.
This programme is delivered by a highly research-intensive School comprised of a European Research Council Fellow and six Marie Curie Fellowships. The programme Director Prof. Kevin McDonnell won the inaugural SEAI Energy Innovation award, the Environcom award for energy innovation and is a Fulbright Scholar. This programme provides opportunities for site visits and industry internships where possible. The UCD School of Biosystems & Food Engineering consistently wins up to €3 million in annual research funding.
