About

Find out more information about Energy & Power Engineering

Energy engineering degrees study the production, storage, distribution and use of energy within natural or man-made energy systems. Power systems engineering involves the generation and transmission of electricity.

Energy and power engineers work with various natural resources, as fossil fuels or petroleum, and try to increase the use of renewable or sustainable energy sources such as wind, solar and wave power, biomass, hydroelectricity, or nuclear power. Professionals focus on finding more efficient and clean ways to supply energy, and to develop innovative technologies and methods to meet the global need for electricity.

Masters in Energy and Power Engineering typically combine science and engineering theoretical lectures with practical lab courses. Students attend classes in mechanical studies, energy resources characteristics, electric power conversion, distribution and storage systems, costs and economical aspects, sustainable and renewable energies, and environmental protection.

Energy and power professionals work in a variety of roles, including designing and testing machinery, improving existing processes, developing strategies to deal with energy requirements, offering consultancy for the reduction of energy consumption or developing managerial skills to lead teams of engineers and technicians.
