The programme will focus on taught modules (60 credits) in science, engineering and team building, as well as business and management, and a dissertation.
The programme can be studied full-time over one year, or part-time over two or three years. Modules are also available individually to fulfil continuing professional development needs.
Core modules deal with topics such as:
- Materials for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies
- The Energy System
- Marketing and TQM
- Effective Project Management
- Business Methods, Economics and Strategy
A wide range of optional modules enables you to gain specific knowledge relating to hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology. You may also choose to study business, management and public engagement modules, or develop mathematical modelling skills.
The research thesis will focus on any of the following areas: Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Systems, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Stack Engineering for Domestic Applications, Hydrogen Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) Stack Engineering for Automotive, Hybrid Vehicular Systems, Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA) & Electrocatalyst development, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) Stack Engineering for Portable Applications, Alkaline Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells, Discovery of New Nano-Materials for Hydrogen Production & Storage, Discovery of non-PGM alloys Materials, Hydrogen Production from Biomolecules by Novel Methods, Development of Novel Pd Alloy Thin-films for Use in High temperature Hydrogen Membrane Reactors.
Please note: The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods.
