Social demand for sustainable energy supplies is growing, and energy generation and usage is getting increasingly cleaner and more efficient. One aspect of this change is the increasing use of renewable energy sources such as biomass. The energy market is also changing as a result of internationalization and liberalization. 

Master Sustainable Energy Technology

Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) is an interdisciplinary program in which six departments cooperate. The six departments are: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Applied Physics, Architecture, Building and Planning and Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences. This cooperation gives you the opportunity to look at our energy supply from different viewpoints. This program is part of the strategic research area of Energy. It educates academic engineers who possess scientific knowledge on and insight into the design, behaviour and performance of energy technologies and the integration of these technologies in grids, buildings and society.

The discipline of Sustainable Energy Technology combines a number of specializations. The multidisciplinary research is organized into several themes, which are also the focal areas of the energy related research at the TU/e: 

  • Electrical power systems 
  • Application in the built environment 
  • Energy & society 
  • Sources, fuels & storage 


The EIT InnoEnergy Mastertrack in Environomical Pathways for Sustainable Energy Systems (SELECT)  also forms part of the Master Sustainable Energy Technology. This specialization focuses on minimizing the environmental impact of sustainable energy solutions. Students following this program study their first year in Sweden or Spain and their second year at TU/e. As a result, theygain a double degree in the relevant Master’s program from each university.
