MASTER OF SCIENCE (ENERGY TECHNOLOGY)
Energy is the most important resource for the development of a country. The dependence on conventional energy such as oil, gas and coal as the main source of energy will have a detrimental effect on the development of a country if the supplies are disrupted. Utilisation of conventional energy also contributes to environmental pollution. Alternative sources of energy should be explored and their utilisation should be stepped up.
Some of the sources of alternative energy being considered actively at the international level are solar energy, wind energy, biomass, biogas and hydro. They are not only excellent sources of alternative energy but also easy to access, clean and recyclable. Initiatives to promote renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy demand management are actively being implemented. Energy technology must be improved in order to fulfill the increasing demand in energy. In order to plan and execute the development of the energy technology effectively and economically, a number of experts in the field of alternative energy is needed.
This programme is multidisiplinary and is offered at the School of Applied Physics, with teaching staff from the Faculty of Science and Technology as well as the Faculty of Engineering.
DURATION OF STUDY
