MSc Decarbonisation

  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    MSc 1 year full-time

Course Description

Lead organisations and society towards a zero-carbon world by developing the skills to deliver decarbonisation initiatives with real impact.

In the face of a climate emergency, we live in a world where zero carbon is the only way forward. In the middle of this are businesses, organisations and industries all tackling the complexities of decarbonisation. More than ever, they need a climate-literate workforce prepared to lead the way and drive organisational change. At Bath, our Decarbonisation1 course is designed to do just that. It gives you the technical knowledge and transformative thinking required to create science-based, evidence-led climate initiatives, together with the leadership skills to turn these into reality.

We believe that you can deliver impact as part of your studies so instead of a doing a dissertation, you’ll work on a consultancy project with industry. You could work with businesses, charities, government or the local community on low-carbon projects linked to real challenges.
