What will I learn?

This course is within the Sustainable Power Generation and Supply of the Research Councils’ Energy Programme, the first of its kind in the UK. It provides systematic knowledge and understanding of hydrogen, fuel cells and their applications, including developments and problems at the forefront of the discipline.

Our Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and their Applications Master of Research (MRes) will enable you to be able to deal with complex issues, making sound judgements in the absence of complete information, and communicate your conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.

You will be able to evaluate current research critically, and be original in the application of your knowledge, proposing new hypotheses as appropriate. You will be self-motivating and able to act autonomously, and will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary to exercise initiative and personal responsibility, to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and to have the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development.

Our graduates will possess a high level of numeracy and skills in problem solving, team working, communication and information technology will equip you for successful careers outside as well as within the process and allied industries.
