The program starts with a number of corecourses that provide a good technical knowledge base, which you can then apply in your chosen specialization courses. This fundamental knowledge is a primary requirement for evaluation of the different technologies and assessment of their feasibility.
In the core program you will learn the scientific principles of energy technology – with respect to both heat and electricity – and you will apply these principles in simulations and design assignments. In project work you will focus on the technical, economic and society-related aspects. The majority of your program is focused on your personal specialization in the field of energy. You can focus on electrical power systems, built environment, energy & society or sources, fuels & storage.
You choose together with your supervisor, specialization courses, free electives and homologation which allow you to gain more specialized knowledge, which you will need for your final project and your internal research traineeship
