The generation of energy from sustainable sources will be essential, especially when considering the determination in developed societies to maintain a high standard of living, and the aspirations in developing societies to adopt the energy-intensive lifestyles now prevalent in the developed world.
Securing a sustainable energy future for all
Securing a sustainable energy future implies an energy revolution. A revolution that will require a new generation of specialised engineers and researchers capable of developing, optimising and integrating sustainable energy sources including solar power, wind power and energy from biomass. Research is also required on innovative batteries and the potential to exploit hydrogen as an energy source. New technologies need to be integrated into existing socio-technological networks, and research is required into new forms of energy distribution, new energy market structures and new means of intelligently satisfying the energy needs of complex modern societies.
Because of current trends in the energy sector, future engineers will need more than just solid technical knowledge. Engineers must have insight, for example, into institutional economies and innovation and transformation processes. They must also be prepared to deal with the impact on technology and society that result from the introduction of sustainable energy technologies into our energy infrastructure.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
In most cases, if you hold a BSc degree and the Master’s programme is closely related to your Bachelor’s programme, you will be admitted directly into the programme. However, if the Master’s programme does not follow directly from your undergraduate programme, you will be required to take additional courses in what is called a bridging programme. This may be a standard programme, or it may be tailored to your specific situation.
Numerous scholarships are awarded to admitted students with exceptional promise and outstanding academic achievement by the university, its faculties, departments and industry partners. Consideration for these scholarships requires students to have been admitted to their MSc Programme. Make sure you submit your application as early as possible to be in time for all the scholarship deadlines. More information: www.scholarships.tudelft.nl.
