About the Course
Climate change is driven largely by our reliance on fossil fuels. Setting fire to millions of years of stored carbon in a very short space of time is creating a greenhouse effect and altering our climate. The UN, UK and Scottish Governments have all outlined plans to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels by moving to a low carbon economy. To achieve this we need to implement sustainable energy technologies in every part of our economy.
SRUC’s Renewables and Environmental Technology degree (formerly the BSc/BSc (Hons) Green Technology) is designed to prepare graduates for this rapidly expanding sector of employment. You will not just learn about environmental problems; you will gain the scientific understanding and technical skills which will enable you to contribute to practical action against climate change and environmental degradation.
The Renewables and Environmental Technology BSc/BSc (Hons) is awarded by the University of Glasgow.
Progression Opportunities: Many students progress from degree courses into taught postgraduate courses such as MSc programmes or into a number of different research areas.
