We’re pleased to announce we have launched a new Master of Energy Systems Management (MESM) programme today, starting in September 2022. The one year full-time programme, will be taught by the Department of Engineering and the Business School, in partnership with the Durham Energy Institute. We plan to introduce a part-time online and blended option for the following academic year.

We will also offer 8 scholarships with value of each scholarship: £6,625 (25% of the tuition fee). 

Our scholarships celebrate and reward exceptional candidates applying to our Master of Energy Systems Management (MESM) programme.  For September 2022 entry, all offer holders will be automatically considered for a scholarship; no separate scholarship application is necessary. More details of the scholarship can be found in MESM scholarship


Moving towards Net Zero

Climate change is an indisputable reality. Universities around the world need to prepare students with the right skills to support the essential move toward Net Zero across the globe; balancing greenhouse gases produced, with greenhouse gases removed from the earth’s atmosphere.

Technical and strategic

“In the year the UK hosts the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, it’s hugely exciting to be launching this new programme. It could not be more timely or appropriate, as it will provide students with both the technical and strategic information, they will need to work towards achieving net zero and tackling the global challenges with which climate change confronts us.

Students from all over the world will bring together their different perspectives on these global challenges, in the context of the United Nations strategic development goals. We will inform their learning and responses to these through the world-class research and intelligence of our University’s exceptional academics, with the support of the Durham Energy Institute.” Dr Joanna Berry, Associate Professor in Entrepreneurship and Co-Director of the programme.

Transformational business leaders

The programme addresses the need for future business leaders to understand and support the economic and environmental transformations required as the world moves to zero carbon operation.

Students will develop skills in technologies of energy conversion, as core modules cover a range of business and relevant engineering subjects, including, amongst others:

  • the future of vehicles
  • net zero challenges
  • renewable energy technologies.
