15 May 2012 - The UK's first master’s degree programme focused on teaching students advanced skills in project management for the renewables sector has been launched.
The industry-focused MSc Environmental Technology Renewable Energy run by the Department of Geography at the University of Hull will place students at the heart of the wind, and marine energy sectors.
The region has attracted major inward investment from renewable energy businesses, including Siemens, which has chosen Hull to build wind turbines for the North Sea wind farms. Also home to innovative new renewable technologies, the Humber has been awarded enterprise zone status by the government to help create a 'renewable energy super cluster' of original equipment manufacturers.
Supported by CASS, the University's business-facing renewable energy and environment hub, the MSc will provide the specific skills and knowledge to work at a high level in industry, the public sector and consultancy through drawing on research expertise and industry relationships. read more>>>
