TITLE: MASTERS IN ENGINEERING (RESEARCH BASED) IN RENEWABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
(MECHANICAL ENGINEERING)

UNIVERSITY OF STELLENBOSCH

 

Duration (in semesters): 4 semesters

Credits (per semester): 180 credits overall

 

Objectives

Renewable and Sustainable Energy:    The research-based Masters degree, or MEng (Research), comprise of a 100% research thesis; however, some of the students are expected to successfully complete five supplementary modules, of which one must be a postgraduate Mathematics or Applied Mathematics module. These modules must be chosen from the existing set of modules or modules specifically compiled to suit particular needs

 

 

Structure and content of the program

An approved research project must be completed satisfactorily and a thesis submitted. It must be evident from this thesis that the student is capable of independent scientific and technical investigation and the interpretation of results. The thesis must be accompanied by a declaration that it has not been submitted at another university for a degree, and that it is the student’s own work.

 

Learning outcomes

The outcome of this Programme will be that a number of the underutilised RSE resources in the country will be unlocked by the technical expertise and innovation of scientists and engineers. Apart from the socio-economic benefits of a vibrant RSE industry for South Africa, the diversification of the nation’s energy supply through a stake in renewable energy technology development and implementation in the post fossil-fuel 21st century is urgently required. This effort will be of value not only to South Africa, but also the rest of the continent and the world.
