UCL Energy Institute


MRes Energy Demand Studies

Our MRes offers outstanding preparation for a career as a leader in energy-related industry or academia.

Why choose The Bartlett?

We offer:

  • a leading centre for research into energy demand and the built environment
  • the opportunity to learn from experienced and respected researchers and to undertake original research
  • a multidisciplinary approach that helps students develop into more complete individual researchers and effectively integrate into research teams

About the programme

The only programme of its kind in the UK, the MRes Energy Demand Studies (EDS) offers students grounding in the skills and knowledge needed to carry out research into energy demand reduction in the built environment.

The programme has 3 strands:

  • technical modules (topics include thermodynamics, building physics, behaviour, energy systems, modelling, policy and economics)
  • transferable skills (e.g. writing, presenting, communicating with the public)
  • research

You’ll be introduced to a research-style form of study, reading key texts that provide a focus for research-oriented teaching sessions in small, highly interactive groups, led by experienced researchers.

Alumni testimonials

Bruno Arcuri
"The MRes in Energy Demand Studies enabled me to see the energy system from a different and much broader perspective; namely in terms of understanding the importance of energy demand, whereas the focus of my career had always been on energy supply. It also expanded my knowledge from technical engineering to all aspects of energy systems - social, economic, environmental and political - and helped me to develop the skills needed for scientific research."
