The MSc programme in Sustainable Energy & Energy Access has a goal of nurturing a new generation of energy professionals who take a multidisciplinary approach and holistic view of the clean energy in finding innovative solutions to energy access and sustainable development. This programme was developed under the Transforming Energy Access Learning Partnership (TEA-LP) project with funding from the DFID. The programme offers an integrated set of core and elective courses from different departments in the School of Engineering, School of Business & Economics, School of Arts & Social Sciences and School of Sciences & Aerospace Studies.

The programme responds to four enablers of energy access: Clean energy technologies aimed at household level access as well as access for productive uses; Energy delivery mechanisms, Business models and innovative responses to energy distribution challenges; Consumer environment e.g. Consumption and technology adoption patterns, Marketing innovations and end-user demand stimulation, and Policy mechanisms to promote new energy access markets, energy tariff setting and regulatory challenges related to new technologies. Apart from the technical skills, this programme places strong importance on soft skills. Graduates will become innovators, entrepreneurs, effective communicators, problem solvers, and leaders in the energy sector. Students will engage in collaborative learning, laboratory activities, computer simulations, field exploratory tours, community based learning activities and exchange programmes to gain a deeper understanding and practical experience of the real-life problems in the energy access sector.
