The Master’s programme in Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) enables you to become an engineer with in-depth knowledge on renewable energy technologies.
Focus and Disciplines
The world is becoming acutely aware of the urgent need to resolve the many issues associated with energy consumption and climate change. Limited availability of fossil fuels and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions call for fundamental innovations in the global energy landscape. Sustainable energy and renewable energy technologies, such as bio-energy, solar energy, wind energy and hydrogen, play a key role in tackling these issues, especially given people’s determination to maintain or improve their living standards. This requires experts who deliver high-tech solutions with a human touch.
Research and Specialization
The master’s programme in Sustainable Energy Technology is interlinked with leading research in developing, optimizing and integrating renewable energy sources such as solar, windwater, biomass and innovative energy technology such as fuel cells and smart grids.
