A curriculum for the needs of tomorrow

MSc Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) offers a multidisciplinary technology programme with additional subjects from social sciences that anticipate the impacts of innovation . The multi-disciplinarity of the programme is reflected by involvement of faculties such as Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Applied Sciences and Technology Management. The main focus of MSc SET is on science and technology, but about one quarter of the course programme (1st year) addresses societal and economical aspects of innovations in energy technology.

The programme provides engineers with broadly based energy technology competences. Graduates can apply their acquired knowledge and skills in projects involving a system-based and interdisciplinary approach. On programme completion the engineer will be able to apply the fundamentals of SET to provide technical solutions for sustainable energy related problems, taking into account economic, social, environmental and ethical factors. The engineer will become an expert in at least one of the sub-areas of the field and be able to take part in the ongoing research in that area.

A similar core programme can be followed at each of the three locations. Students benefit from the specific strengths of all the three universities by choosing a specialization at any of the three. The admission procedures, teaching and examination regulations and academic calendars at all three universities have been carefully matched. Students are registered at the location of their choice, but they are automatically co-registered at the other two locations to ensure access to the facilities of all three.
