The Energy Systems and Data Analytics MSc (ESDA MSc) is the first programme of its kind in the UK, combining the study of Energy Systems with Data Science. As an ESDA student, you will gain a multi-sector multi-vector understanding of Energy Systems, while developing advanced statistical and machine learning skills and getting practical experience of data analysis.

The programme is aimed at students with a quantitative background who have an interest in energy and are motivated by the use of data science to solve sustainability problems. You will gain skills sought after by industry allowing you to become a leader and innovator in the energy sector, from established large scale utilities and data science companies to innovative new start-ups.

This advanced degree programme is designed to provide a broad understanding of energy systems, statistics, programming, energy use in the built environment, energy use in the transport sector and the role of data and advanced analytics in solving relevant sustainability problems.

All modules are taught by a world-class faculty with a breadth of academic and industrial knowledge, who combined represent the cutting edge of energy systems analysis.
