Lead organisations and society towards a zero-carbon world by developing the skills to deliver decarbonisation initiatives with real impact.
In the face of a climate emergency, we live in a world where zero carbon is the only way forward. In the middle of this are businesses, organisations and industries all tackling the complexities of decarbonisation. More than ever, they need a climate-literate workforce prepared to lead the way and drive organisational change. At Bath, our Decarbonisation1 course is designed to do just that. It gives you the technical knowledge and transformative thinking required to create science-based, evidence-led climate initiatives, together with the leadership skills to turn these into reality.
We believe that you can deliver impact as part of your studies so instead of a doing a dissertation, you'll work on a consultancy project with industry. You could work with businesses, charities, government or the local community on low-carbon projects linked to real challenges.
A flexible and collaborative learning experience
Our course includes flexible, hybrid learning options so that students who can't always be on campus can engage fully and build valuable remote-working skills. It also allows us to reduce the carbon impact of the course.
We take a team-based approach to teaching. Throughout the course you’ll work in diverse groups with students from a range of backgrounds so that each cohort has a unique educational experience.
Your future starts here
We embed professional skills and employability development into the course to help prepare you for your career. Our Faculty’s postgraduate employability team runs professional skills workshops, and one-to-one sessions to help you with your CV and interview preparation.
We expect graduates from our course to design and deliver decarbonisation solutions and zero-carbon projects in a range of organisations, including businesses, charities, NGOs and government.
