About the course

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 course 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.

The London-Loughborough Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand

The MRes EDS also forms the first year of a 4-year PhD programme offered by UCL-Energy, via the London-Loughborough Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand.
