Your path to the future
The MSc ENTECH programme gives you the ability to meet the complex challenges in the design, development, operation and analysis of future energy technologies.
Students who successfully complete the MSc ENTECH programme acquire a wide range of basic engineering skills in the field of energy technologies, as well as in-depth knowledge in two fields of energy engineering, the ability to work in inter-disciplinary teams, and skills in project management and innovation.
In particular, students develop the ability to recognise problems and challenges that require an inter-disciplinary response and to approach them with innovative solutions. MSc EMINE graduates are quick to recognise new market trends and have the knowledge and skills needed to earn and maintain a leadership position through innovative ideas and projects of their own.
As a result, students are able to:
Design new processes and energy systems
Push the development of new technologies beyond the current state of the art
Evaluate the feasibility and impact of new technologies
Implement developed ideas

With a choice of more than 200 individual courses that cover a comprehensive range of energy technologies, the two-year MSc ENTECH programme has a broad scope – with a special emphasis on innovation and management practice. The aim of the programme is to give you the inter-disciplinary knowledge, skills and networks needed to navigate the complexity of future energy systems.
In addition to deepening and broadening your engineering and technical knowledge, you will also study the economic, legal and ecological aspects of various energy technologies and their implementation. You will also learn the basics of innovation management and product development – with a focus on industrial issues of practical relevance, particularly during project work and during your Master’s thesis.
In the first year, you can choose to attend either the KIT: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany or IST: Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal, where you will undertake basic courses to ensure that you have the necessary energy engineering knowledge across a broad range of topic areas. Classes have a modular structure, and you will be asked to agree to an individual Learning Agreement.
In addition, you will take courses on design thinking, business for founders, marketing and economics, and will attend seminars from GEM: Grenoble École de Management in pitching, shareholder management, and other fundamentals of business creation.
At the end of the first year, you attend an intensive ‘Entrepreneur in a week’ course at the Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics in Portugal. Here you take courses relating to business and economics, including project management and business planning, to enhance your understanding of modern business practice in the energy sector.
In the second year, you can pursue the subject areas that interest you most, by choosing two specialist topics for study from the following list:
1. Thermal power plants
2. Energy in buildings
3. Chemical energy carriers
4. Decentralised power supply and grid integration
5. Nuclear and fusion technology
6. Renewable energy and energy storage
7. Energy economics and informatics
8. Utility facilities
Your choice of specialisation will determine which university you attend in your second year.
You complete your second year by working on your Master’s thesis, which is worth 30 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits, and takes place throughout the fourth semester of the programme. You can choose a thesis topic that is part of a wider research project or is directly related to industry. The location for your thesis, whether it is an industrial enterprise or research institution, will depend on your chosen topic.
