The MSc Sustainable Energy Technology programme provides state-of-the-art education in the fields of sustainable energy generation, distribution and consumption.
Designed in response to a growing skills shortage of engineers with a high level of training in renewable energy, smart grids and sustainability, the MSc Sustainable Energy Technology programme provides you with an advanced education in the fields of sustainable energy generation, distribution and consumption.
You will gain a thorough understanding of sustainability standards, various renewable energies, smart grid and power electronics for renewable energy and energy use management in buildings, urban design and other areas.
You will graduate ready to forge a successful career in sustainable energy technology, where recent developments have led to many job opportunities opening up in industry, government institutions and research centres.
By the time you graduate from the MSc Sustainable Energy Technology, you will have:
The completion of additional learning activities is required to obtain your master degree. The programme includes a total of 600 hours of Additional Learning Activities, most of which are chosen individually by students. Normally, required ALA hours will be distributed evenly across each semester, amounting to 200 hours per semester. Part-time programmes will normally require 100 to 150 hours per semester. They should normally be spread equally over teaching semesters and the summer and winter breaks.
Graduates from this programme are well prepared for positions such as electric power system engineer, electric power system consultant, electric power projects manager, and sustainable cities and building design consultant. Graduates may go on to work with industry and government to implement sustainable energy technologies within existing or new systems, and model and evaluate of their impact on ecosystems, economics and society.
