12. Sustainable Energy Technology (SET)

Mechanical Engineering together with Chemical Engineering, other

faculties of UT and the other Technological Universities in

The Netherlands combine their expertises in this master programme.

There are strong links with the energy sector and industries.


The information session about SET is scheduled on 28 March 2007,
12.30-13.30h in room OH 218.
