Master in Energy Technologies is offered by 4 European universities from Portugal, Germany, France and Sweden. The program focuses on interdisciplinary engineering aspects of sustainable energy sector along with innovation and entrepreneurship in the future energy industry. Master in Energy Technologies is divided into a series of modules, each consisting of individual courses. Students are required to complete their 120 ECTS credits, which results in granting of a double degree from two partner universities.
Master in Energy Technologies description
Energy technologies program enables students to meet complex challenges in energy sector i.e. to develop, operate and analyze future energy technologies. Students learn the ability to realize challenges and problems that require an interdisciplinary approach for innovative solutions. Graduates of the program are able to (1) design new processes and energy systems, (2) Evaluate the feasibility and impact of new energy technologies, (3) Implement ideas and push the development of new energy technologies beyond their current limitations.
Professors help in developing the two-year study path for the students as per the student’s interest. First year is required to be complete at IST: Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal, which can lead to any one of the following specializations: fuels, renewable energy, energy conversion or energy efficiency. During the second year students are required to opt one of the following universities:
- KIT: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany
- Grenoble INP: Institute of Technology in France
- UU: Uppsala University in Sweden
At Uppsala University, students can specialize in one of the following modules: energy economics, renewable energy, energy in buildings or decentralized grid. At KIT, students can pursue: engineering thermodynamics, energy technology, thermal turbo-machines, energy technology for buildings, power plant technology, modelling and simulation in energy and fluid engineering. At INP Grenoble, students can chose between renewable energy or energy in buildings specialization. Students receive double degrees from two of the following universities:
- Grenoble INP Institute of Technology, Master of Science in Fluid Mechanics & Energetics
- KIT: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Master of Science
- UU: Uppsala University, Master of Science in Energy Technology
- IST: Instituto Superior Técnico, Master of Energy Engineering & Management
