What will the future bring in terms of energy? How much electricity will be generated from renewable sources such as wind and sun? What will power cars in the future and what will their engines and/or motors look like? The liberalisation of energy markets is causing a genuine techno-economic revolution. Guaranteeing a supply of energy that is clean, affordable and secure, is one of society's key challenges. These phenomena make the subject of energy engineering highly topical. The Master of Energy addresses multidisciplinary aspects of energy, exploring the possibilities and limitations of the various energy technologies and systems, whilst examining the environmental impact and socio-economic consequences.
What's the programme all about?
The Master of Energy addresses the main issues of mechanical and electrical energy engineering in a balanced and integrated manner, together with an in depth appreciation of the socio-economic preconditions that have an impact on the engineer’s sphere of action.
The first year consists of electrical and mechanical engineering courses, as well as several techno-economic, energy-related subjects and integrated problem solving and project work.
In the second year, your specialisation is developed by, amongst others, writing a master's thesis on a subject related to electrical energy, thermomechanical energy, techno-economic aspects, or a combination. You can also participate in an international exchange or do an internship.
