During your Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, you will collect a total of 120 EC within two years. You will follow (elective) courses related to the specialisation in Energy & Flow, do an internship and you will end your Master’s by writing your master’s thesis. What your curriculum will look like exactly, depends on the choices you make within this specialisation.
Number of EC
You can choose courses of the Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, but you can also choose (a maximum of three) courses offered by other programmes at UT. Of course, you can also choose more of the specialisation courses listed above.
Examples of electives that perfectly fit this specialisation:
In the first quartile of your second year, you will do an internship, as preparation for the professional field. If you are a student entering from a university of applied science (Dutch HBO), you will follow 15 EC master’s courses, instead of doing an internship.
You will finish your Master’s in ME with your master’s thesis.
During your Master’s in Mechanical Engineering, you will gain practical experience by doing an internship for approximately three months. There are many options open to you when it comes to choosing your internship. If you are a student entering from a university of applied science (Dutch HBO), you will follow 15 EC master’s courses, instead of doing an internship.
Examples of internships our students took on:
- Development of a tidal turbine at MARIN – Maritime Research Institute Netherlands
- Design of a cooling system for fuel cell-powered electrical aircraft at NLR – Netherlands Aerospace Centre
- Investigating the pressure losses of heat pump components at Cooll Sustainable Energy Solutions in Enschede
- Development of a plant monitor in a biomass plant at HoST in Enschede
You will end your Master’s with your master’s thesis. The choice of your graduation subject is largely up to you. Your research can be experimental or theoretical, including numerical simulations, as well as fundamental or directed at a specific application. You can choose to conduct (part of) your final thesis at an external institution or organisation as well. At UT, you can make use of excellent facilities, like our state-of-the-art wind tunnel, pilot-plants for thermal conversion processes, or a specialised high-tech lab facility for thin-layer flow.
