you will acquire in-depth technical knowledge as well as a broad foundation in the field of sustainable energy technology.
In essence, the Master’s in Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) is about realising the sustainable energy transition, from research to development to implementation to social acceptance. As a student, you will gain in-depth knowledge about renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, wind energy or biomass. But you will also learn about system integration (e.g. what kind of electrical infrastructure is needed for successful integration of a renewable energy source?) and about the socio-economical aspects of the sustainable energy transition. To sum up, you will be trained in chemical, electrical, process and mechanical engineering, as well as in economics, business development, innovation, supply chain management and societal change.
In the first year, you will follow (compulsory) courses related to these topics, aimed at you gaining a broad foundation in the field of sustainable energy technology. These courses are divided into four themes:
- Energy sources
- Technology and sustainability
- Design and system integration
Next to the fundamental courses you will follow during your first year, you have ample opportunity to tailor the rest of your Master's to your own interests and ambitions. The second and final year of your Master’s is about (preparing for) your master’s thesis. You choose a graduation direction and follow advanced and specialised elective courses. Examples of directions you can graduate in are Solar Energy, Biomass, Wind Energy, Power grids or Sustainable Energy and Society, to name a few. By focusing on a specific subject within the domain of sustainable energy technology, you will build deeper expertise in addition to your broad foundation within the field.
As a graduate of this Master’s, you have acquired specific scientific knowledge, skills and values.
