Overview

The depletion of fossil fuels has been a long-term concern throughout the world as human living standards rise over the past century simultaneously increased the reliance on these depleting resources for power generation. The shift of energy supply from conventional energy resources to sustainable resources, also known as renewable resources, is necessary to cope with this phenomena. The use of renewable... energy can lower the demand for fossil fuels and provide a clean alternative for energy supply. Nevertheless, this programme offers specialised courses in both conventional energy resources and renewable energy resources to give a wider perspective of the subject. This energy engineering degree programme meets national and international goals, and its purpose is to support these global goals by developing more capable energy engineers. The course structure is specially curated to follow the sequence from the fundamentals of energy, generation of energy and storage of energy, up to the integration of energy in different aspects of the industry. The main highlight of this programme would be the in-depth study on conventional sources of energy such as natural gas, coal, and crude oil and sustainable sources of energy such as biogas, biomass, wind, solar, hydro and other emerging sources.
