“My advice to anyone thinking of applying for the course would be 'go for it'. The assignments and dissertation gave me opportunities to apply what I was learning to my own role which was hugely beneficial. My company was looking at lean engineering which was taught on the course, while I was able to learn new programmable logic controller techniques.

MODULES & LEARNING

Carry out an in-depth research project, presented in a dissertation, into an area of sustainable engineering.

Explore the environmental issues for the life cycle of a product, from raw materials to the final recycling.

Study real time control issues using the latest PLC controls and emulation software.

Investigate, identify and evaluate technologies to minimise the energy consumption and environmental impacts of computing resources.

Examine the environmental impact of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in an industrial / commercial setting.

Analyse how organisations respond to rapidly changing markets, unknown or changing product requirements.

Develop the ability to initiate, plan, execute, manage and sign off a project.

Use discreet event simulation and 3D modelling techniques to construct virtual factories that use automated systems.

Enhance your knowledge of building and system performance in resolution of carbon reduction and achieving long-term sustainability.

Review current trends in building services systems design, focusing upon design approaches, sustainability considerations, electrical systems and lighting design.

Provides a foundation upon which to develop engineering skills and protocols through a work based or work simulated environment.

You will have access to a range of impressive facilities, including FlexSim Discrete simulation software, Dimension Rapid Prototyping machine, ARM development boards, concrete beam production testing, structural element testing and hydraulics equipment, to name just a few.

To meet the government objective of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by four fifths by 2050, UK businesses are increasingly looking for professionals who are experts in how energy is used in buildings. The research findings of the Leeds Sustainability Institute at our University will feed into your course and ensure what you learn reflects the latest, cutting-edge developments in sustainable engineering so you can catch the eye of such employers.

In addition to this, you'll benefit from our strong connections with business leaders and sustainability experts, many of whom provide guest talks to our students.

If you're already working in industry you will also benefit from assignments that allow you to focus on your own place of work, enabling you to apply what you learn straight away in your current role.
