Programme Outcomes

On successful completion of this programme the learner will be able to :

PO1Knowledge - BreadthA broad based knowledge and understanding of mathematics, the physical sciences, ICT, design processes and methodologies and industrial practices relevant to Sustainable Energy Engineering.
PO2Knowledge - KindA detailed knowledge and understanding of the application of mathematical and scientific methods to Sustainable Energy problems, whilst comprehending that mathematics and the engineering sciences are built on relatively few basic concepts and involving powerful unifying principles.
PO3Skill - RangeApply and modify mathematical and scientific tools and techniques to solve complex sustainable energy problems through data collection, modelling, analysis, design, simulation, communication and management with creativity, imagination and confidence.
PO4Skill - SelectivityThe ability to select, evaluate and apply appropriate engineering, technological and management aids to design and implement a system, component or process to meet specified needs in complex and unfamiliar situations.
PO5Competence - Context An understanding of the diverse nature and the social context of energy engineering; appreciate the impact of engineering solutions in a global, contemporary, societal, commercial and environmental context; exhibit professionalism, whilst having the confidence and independence to apply existing knowledge to new and unfamiliar problems.
PO6Competence - RoleAn ability to act in teams and in a multi-disciplinary fashion, set and implement work objectives and priorities, exercise leadership over technical or other personnel where required; recognise, interpret and apply appropriate regulations and ethical considerations.
PO7Competence - Learning to LearnAn awareness of the current boundaries of the various specialist areas in Sustainable Energy and to have sufficient academic training, confidence and discipline to broaden and deepen own knowledge base through further study, research and professional development.
PO8Competence - InsightA recognition of their obligations to society, the profession and the environment by being familiar with the expectations and standards inherent in professional codes of conduct, and by realising the interconnectivities between technology, society and global sustainability.
