Are you looking to pursue or develop your career in energy or sustainability related fields? A master’s from our renowned School, with its strong reputation for research and education relating to the design, construction and operation of the buildings and places within which we live, work and play, will help you take the next step. (The University of Reading is ranked 3rd in the UK for research impact in Architecture, Built Environment and Planning in the Times Higher Education Institutions Ranked by Subject, 2014, based on its analysis of REF 2014.)

Throughout this course, you will engage with issues and debates concerning the role of energy, including examining the technical and policy questions arising from global demands for secure, affordable and sustainable processes.

Accredited by the Energy Institute, and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, the course is designed to enable you to develop your knowledge further in a range of areas including carbon management and energy use in the built environment. (Accreditation is reviewed periodically. Successful completion of this course satisfies the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer.)

This course is offered as a one-year full-time course, or as a flexible modular course with entry in January. Both the full-time and flexible modular courses are delivered via residential weeks at our campus and supported through our online learning environment.
