The qualification aims to contextualise engineering for those new to, or preparing to work in the renewable energy industry.
Martin Butler said: "As part of our new engineering offer, we are proud to add renewable energy as a qualification. This will be delivered from September 2018.
"Renewable energy is a new scheme designed to complement our current offer within the engineering department whilst investing in a sustainable future, offering a different route into the engineering sector."
The new course will give the individuals the opportunity to specialise in sources of renewable energy of their choice and will equip students with some of the basic technical skills they will need for engineering such as welding, fabrication techniques and the use of computer aided design (CAD) software.
This will also equip students with the basic mathematical and scientific skills they will need as engineers. All students to use the skills they have learnt in carrying out an engineering project.
