The development of energetics was strongly galvanised by the petrol crises of the 1970s. The latter revealed to Europeans the extent to which their standard of living was dependent on the price and availability of energy. Today the major challenge is to limit greenhouse gas emissions and more particularly those of CO2, produced during the burning of fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal and petrol. An energeticist is the engineer who puts into practice the clean and efficient combustion of hydrocarbons. During his or her education programme, he or she will also study the various types of renewable energies and nuclear power stations.
One of the major challenges of the contemporary world is the emergence of new countries who are high consumers as they are developing rapidly (China, India, Brazil, etc.). We thus have to demonstrate imagination in order to manage limited resources as well as possible, whilst overcoming the more and more considerable problems posed by local, regional and global pollution and the planet's ecological balance.
To confront these challenges and the technical, economic and environmental problems which follow from them a new type of engineer is necessary. Their training must be very multipurpose and rest on the major axes of electro-mechanics. With strong bases in the fields of energy resources and renewable energies, heat engines, and electrical and hydraulic machines, the energeticist fulfils these criteria. He or she also receives reinforced education in electrical, thermal and fluidics measurement, electrical energy networks, transfer processes and the analysis of thermal, chemical and electrical systems.
The energeticist is also trained in the optimal simulation, exploitation and management of the major energetics systems, such as electricity power stations (hydraulic, nuclear and fossil fuel), electricity transport and distribution systems, or heating, refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
A very large number of possibilities are offered in terms of external training programmes, end of study work projects and studying abroad.

The 1st bloc of the master programme offers a general education with a focus on energy, mainly oriented toward the fundamental fields of electricity, mechanics, thermodynamics, chemistry and materials. All this knowledge must be called upon to carry out an integrated energetics project, worth 8 credits. In the 2nd bloc, students can choose between an observation and an integration internship in a company or a research centre, as a part of your final project (25 credits). You can pick from 2 options for the master programme.
International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to universities in Belgium when:
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.

Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
The University of Liege is the only public, pluralist and complete university institution of the French Walloon-Brussels community. It is a part of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy. It aims at maintaining a fair balance between teaching, research and community service activities, in the broad lines recognised by its complete university status.
