Energy Infrastructure – MEng

  • Campus: Athlone

  • years: 1

Course Overview

Today’s energy systems are highly interdependent and very heterogeneous. The infrastructure that supports the generation and distribution of energy is varied, complex and dependent on a range of practical engineering and geographical considerations. This complex infrastructure requires and understanding of a range of interdisciplinary concepts for its design, construction, operation and maintenance.

This programme is designed to arm learners with the knowledge and imbue them with the practical skills for construction, analysis and management of energy infrastructure projects.

The programme will be delivered over two academic semesters in a blended mode, predominately through online lectures taking place in the evenings with additional focused practical sessions taking place in AITs state of the art laboratories.
