Description

The Master's degree program Sustainable Energy Technology provides bachelor engineers with a broadly based knowledge of energy technology. You will be highly familiar with the latest developments.

The Master's degree program Sustainable Energy Technology delivers energy experts with more than technical knowledge alone. They also have an understanding of economics, policy and innovation processes. This combination is a clear advantage for employers. The program provides students with a strong technology knowledge base in sustainable energy. In the first year students will gain more in-depth knowledge in sustainable energy resources by lectures and project work. During the first year students start taking specialization courses so that they can dedicate the full second year to their specialization, including an internship and a graduation project. The program has seven graduation tracks in which you can specialize: solar energy, energy from biomass, hydrogen technology, electrical power engineering, energy and society, wind energy and sustainable energy in the built environment. The demand for Sustainable Energy Technology engineers is strong. Eindhoven University of Technology is in the world's top 20 institutes carrying out research into alternative energy, according to a study by the scientific publisher Elsevier.

Specialities:

Energy from biomass :

To convert the biomass to energy, processes like gasification, pyrolysis and fermentation are used.

Solar Energy:

Solar cell systems are already cost- effective for many autonomous applications, i.e. telecommunications and rural electrification.

Wind Energy:

In the Netherlands research into wind energy conversion is done by the DUWinD organization of Delft University of Technology (TUD) and by ECN in Petten.

Hydrogen Technology:

The research is focused on the production, purification, storage of hydrogen, and its use in internal combustion engines.

Electrical power engineering:

In the group 'electrical energy systems' the research is focused on the integration of distributed generation in the electrical network.

Energy and society:

Sustainable energy systems in the future will be quite different from the energy systems we know at this moment.

Sustainable energy in the built environment:

The built environment is one of the biggest consumers of primary energy worldwide.
