Course Description

This course is ideal for those looking to develop green industries, supporting climate change agendas at regional, national and international levels.

You learn how to synthesise information from a variety of sources and develop your decision-making abilities in solving complex sustainability problems. Working with a supervisor, you also conduct a research project in a specific area of sustainable engineering.

Part of this includes a Net Zero Industry Innovation Centre, an innovative new £13.1m facility and key component of Tees Valley Combined Authority’s regional innovation strategy, which will position Teesside firmly at the heart of the UK’s green industrial revolution.

We are based in the Tees Valley, a hub of the green energy industry, housing bioethanol, hydrogen and offshore wind farms. The region is also a centre for investment in carbon capture and storage, and industrial decarbonisation.
