Choosing your Master’s degree in Energy and Power
Rest assured that in the current climate, Cranfield University is very much open and welcoming applications from those of you wishing to study with us in October 2020. Energy and Power is still a vibrant sector and the need for talented graduates in this discipline remains strong. The ever changing situation with Covid-19 means that as a University we continue to adapt and work to maintain our activity, including developing the cutting edge techniques that may be needed to ensure we’ll be delivering our exceptional courses for you all in October. We have created a page you can view here where many of your questions or concerns will be answered. If you have something that is not made clear, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will do our very best to help you. We look forward to welcoming you to the Cranfield community.
At Cranfield, we create leaders in technology and management. All our technical Master’s include some element of management know-how, so that we create well-rounded postgraduates able to excel in their chosen business sectors. Our unique group project is a key component of learning about project management in small teams and is common to all our MSc courses.
Our specialised Energy and Power MSc courses are principally engineering or science-based. They are designed for engineering, technology and management careers in the energy and power sectors. At Cranfield you will study essential management aspects of your subject through lectures as they relate, say, to managing technology pipelines, financing technology investments or to new regulations, for example. Our postgraduates typically progress to become expert technologists in business or government or may progress to research careers.
One of the choices you have when choosing an energy and power MSc is to select the balance between the engineering/technology components, and the management components in the taught part of your MSc curriculum.
All our energy courses now include the ‘Management for Technology’ module, given the radical transitions occurring in this sector, and two of our courses Renewable Energy MSc and Offshore Engineering MSc offer specific management-focused study routes. Some courses, such as Advanced Chemical Engineering MSc, also offer a biorefining or general route, providing you with much more flexibility in your studies.
Postgraduates seeking even greater management contributions to their curriculum might study our MBA in Energy which is available through the School of Management with contributions from senior staff in the Energy and Power theme.
If choosing this route we have arranged for a 50% discount on the full-time MBA for those progressing from their technical MSc at Cranfield, making this a highly attractive and powerful combination of specialist technology and management training from a world leading institution.
Our Careers Service plays a pivotal networking role across the University, working closely with students, staff and potential employers to enhance student employability skills and their career opportunities. We also offer our alumni a lifelong continuation service for their career development.
