Smart Energy and the Built Environment MSc

"The course has taught me to how to approach complex interplay of sociotechnical issues involved in decarbonising the built environment. I am more discerning in the interpretation of data. I feel I have a realistic view of the challenges of widespread deployment of technologies key to making the energy transition happen.” 
Chris Winters, Smart Energy and the Built Environment MSc student

Energy Systems and Data Analytics

"ESDA is a one of kind MSc., it offers the rigorosity of statistics to understand the promise and perils of data analytics and machine learning, while providing you a holistic view of the energy systems: transport, built environment and the electricity system. It is conducted by an interdisciplinary set of lectures from UCL’s Energy Institute and attended by a diverse (and very friendly!) group of students. All of this combined with a solid industry approach to prepare you for the challenges to achieve a sustainable energy future.”

PhD in Energy

"I very much enjoyed doing the PhD, particularly as I had great support in a truly multi-disciplinary environment, and had the freedom to design and develop my own topic. The knowledge and skills that I gained during the PhD were an important part of helping me to put theory into practice through my current position in the Department of Energy and Climate Change." 
Peter Warren, PhD graduate, Completed viva June 2015, Head of Climate Finance for Innovation and Technology, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy
