- Program Description:
- This programme teaches you to focus on technological possibilities without losing sight of the environmental and socio-economic aspects of your chosen field. The programme has an international scope and collaborates with partner universities excelling in the energy domain. It is a two-year programme and can be taken in Dutch or in English.
This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
The first year consists of electrical and mechanical engineering courses, as well as more general socio-economic, energy-related subjects and an integrated project. In the second year, you continue your specialisation by, among other things, writing a Master's thesis on a subject related to electrical energy, thermo-mechanical energy or more general technical-economic aspects. You may also participate in an international exchange or do an internship.
The programme aims to produce engineers with a broad background in electrical and mechanical energy systems able to participate in current design and production activities of advanced systems. They will learn to design, construct and use thermal machines, on the one hand, and will become experts in energy supply in general (technical possibilities and limitations, environmental consequences, economical aspects), on the other.
