Taught by internationally-recognised experts in the University’s Advanced Technology Institute (ATI), this programme will enable you to discover the practical implementation of nanoscience and quantum engineering, nanomaterials, and nanotechnology for renewable energy generation and storage.
You will gain specialised skills through an individual research project within our research groups, using state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.
Our MSc Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy focuses on the practical implementation of nanoscience and quantum engineering, nanomaterials and nanotechnology for renewable energy.
The programme covers the fundamentals behind nanotechnology and moves on to discuss its implementation using nanomaterials – such as graphene carbon nanotubes, 2D materials, and perovskite solar cells. You will discover the use of advanced nanotechnology tools which allow us to see at the nanoscale, and learn about future trends and applications for energy generation and storage.
Completion of the programme will provide you with the essential skills you need to advance your career in this rapidly emerging field.

There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.
The Advanced Technology Institute at Surrey has over 20 years' research experience in nanomaterials, and our expertise within the electronics and photonics area have contributed to multi-billion dollar industries. Students will not only learn from academics in this research institute but will have the possibility to undertake research within high quality fabrication facilities.
This course is specifically designed to equip graduates for the energy industry, most notably in solar energy and storage, as well as providing the opportunity to pursue further research through a PhD programme.
