Meeting the challenges of future energy technologies reliability, sustainability, efficiency and environmental compatibility requires well-trained engineers with a profound knowledge of all the exciting opportunities available to us. The MSc ENTECH programme gives engineers this know-how. In contrast to the engineering education of the past, which was typically restricted to single aspects like electrical or mechanical, ENTECH focuses on acquiring the interdisciplinary knowledge essential for coping with the complexity of future energy systems. It gives you a wide range of hands-on opportunities to apply your knowledge and skills both in theory and in practice. Whats more, the programme strongly emphasises integrating creative, entrepreneurial and leadership skills to foster the creation of new ideas and to turn them into innovative products, services, processes and policies.
Completing MSc ENTECH equips you to meet tough challenges in the design, development, operation and analysis of future energy technologies. At the same time you gain:

ENTECH is a joint programme run by four renowned European universities who are members of the consortium KIC InnoEnergy:
A student who has successfully completed ENTECH will have acquired a wide and diverse range of basic engineering skills in the field of energy technologies. A key competence of the student is his/her ability to recognize interdisciplinary problems and challenges and to approach them with innovative spirit. Owing to the linking of the master programme with the industrial partners of the collaborating universities, graduates are especially qualified to develop innovations, both on their own and as members of interdisciplinary teams, and, in cooperation with business partners, to convert these inventions into innovations. They are quick in recognizing new trends on the market and know how to occupy and maintain their position through innovative ideas and projects of their own.
MSc ENTECH ensures its graduates many career opportunities. You may choose further research and a doctorate degree, or reap the benefits of your profound engineering skills and know-how directly in industry. In either case, you will capitalize on the numerous contacts and experiences with industry gathered during your studies. Employers from industry and research institutions alike will certainly appreciate your additional entrepreneurial skills. Moreover, your knowledge of business creation processes makes it easier for future entrepreneurs to enter the labour market.
ENTECHs scope is energy technologies in a broad sense. As students come from different backgrounds, the initial training (Basic Courses) will bring them to a common level of energy engineering knowledge. This requires a modular class structure and a Learning Agreement developed on an individual student basis.
Subsequently, and based on the respective basic courses, several specialisations (Main Subjects) are offered. Topics, which differ between the collaborating universities, cover fields like electrical energy systems, transport and storage of energy, energy conversion, energy economics and energy system analysis. You must select two main subjects to pursue in depth.
The master thesis (30 ECTS) covers the entire fourth semester. Within this period, you work on a topic that is part of a research project or directly related to industry. The site (industrial enterprise or research institution) and time of this internship depend on the specific topic.
Your studies also cover economic and social as well as legal and ecological aspects of different energy technologies and their implementation. Special emphasis is put on innovation and management processes; you learn the basics of product development and how innovations can be realized in companies (Innovation & Entrepreneurship). Topics dealt with in project work and later on, particularly in the master thesis, are primarily industrial issues of practical relevance, or part of a larger research project carried out together with an industrial partner.
According to EIT criteria, the programme envisages mobility from one university to another after the first study year. The university that you choose for your first year will be the home institution. You then continue your second year at one of the partner institutions according to your chosen major.
The four partner universities cooperating in ENTECH are:
KIT and IST offer full first-study year entry points as well as the second-year exit points. To broaden the possibilities within ENTECH, UU and Grenoble INP provide selected second-year specialisations.
ENTECH master programme is for outstanding students with an above-average Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Chemical Engineering. Admission of students with a different background in a related field may be possible after careful assessment.
To qualify for the ENTECH programme applicants need to fulfil the admission requirements related to previous studies and English proficiency, as well as the general eligibility criteria of the KIC InnoEnergy Masterschool.
Admission of students with a different Bachelors degree will be decided by the Admission Committee after assessment of equivalence.
Applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency, which is generally established through an internationally recognized test. The following tests and scores are accepted.
IELTS Academic Training test (www.ielts.org)
An overall band score of at least 6.5, with no section lower than 6, is required. IELTS-tests are verified online by KTH Admissions office, sending a photocopy of your test together with your application documents is therefore sufficient.
TOEFL Internet-based test, iBT (www.toefl.org)
A total score of at least 92 (with writing section 22) is required. English test results from TOEFL should be sent directly from the ETS test center to University Admissions in Sweden (institution code 9520). Examinee score reports or photocopies are not accepted. When sending your score, you can choose any school type and department for University Admissions; it does not matter which one you select.
Please note that it can take several weeks for your test scores to arrive from ETS, so arrange for them to be sent to University Admissions as early as possible.
University of Cambridge / University of Oxford Certificates
Certificate in Advanced English (CAE): grades A- C are accepted.
Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE): grades A- C are accepted.
have completed a higher education degree instructed in English at a university or a university of applied sciences in an EU/EEA country. The official language of the degree programme has to be stated in the degree certificate or its supplement, or in the transcript of records. Statements are not accepted. Other documentation regarding language of instruction will not be accepted.
have completed a degree instructed in English at a university that is physically located in one of the following countries: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand.
Applicants who have completed a higher education degree in an EU/EEA country can be conditionally accepted to the programmes by submitting a certificate from your university confirming a level B2 (70%) with regard to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages, or providing an Institutional TOEFL test. If you receive a conditional offer, you should present your IELTS/TOEFL/Cambridge certificate to the KIC InnoEnergyAdmissions Office, who will forward it to your particular programme and appointed year 1 university such that your admission can be formalized.
