The two-year English-taught Master’s programme Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) educates students to gain in-depth understanding of (energy) technology and engineering and to supplement that with knowledge and skills related to entrepreneurship and innovation. Building on this broad foundation, SET engineers will rise above technology to play a role as enabler, leader and game changer in the transition towards sustainable energy systems. The energy challenges that are faced today call for professionals who are as skillful in engineering as they are in business development and innovation. The SET programme will prepare engineers for this broader, more entrepreneurial role. In this research driven programme students will be trained in chemical, electrical, process and mechanical engineering, as well as economics, business development, innovation, supply chain management and societal change. This master is in cooperation with the other Dutch technical universities within the 4TU.federation.
