The master's program Sustainable Energy Technology trains engineers with a broadly based knowledge of energy technology. To provide a good technical base, the program starts with a number of basic courses. This knowledge is then applied in the specialization courses. This fundamental knowledge is a primary requirement for evaluation of the different technologies and assessment of their feasibility.
Also required is an understanding of the energy infrastructure and the community in which the technology is to be applied. You will therefore take courses in which the introduction of technical innovations in the community is a central element, together with attention for economics and consumer behavior. You will learn how to apply the knowledge that you have gained in projects involving both the system-based and interdisciplinary approaches. Elective courses which you choose together with your supervisor allow you to gain more specialized knowledge, which you will need for your final project and your internal research traineeship.
