About

The generation and use of energy are becoming more efficient and clean all the time. One factor of change is the increasing use of renewable energy sources such as biomass. The energy market is also changing as a result of internationalization and liberalization.

Study Sustainable Energy Technology: get to know all about it

The departments Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Applied Physics, Architecture, Building and Planning and Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences all cooperate in the Master's Program Sustainable Energy Technology. Graduates from this Master's Program will contribute to the newest developments in sustainable energy technology, and understand the opportunities and limitations involved in its application.

Specializations

The discipline of Sustainable Energy Technology combines a number of specializations. The multidisciplinary research in the field of sustainable energy technology is organized into several themes, which are also the focal areas of the energy related research at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e):

  • Electrical power systems
  • Application in built environment
  • Energy & society
  • Sources, fuels & storage

Graduated and then?

There is a strong demand for graduate engineers from the Master's Program Sustainable Energy Technology. As an engineer you will be able to provide technical solutions for problems and questions related to process and product engineering.

Accreditation

This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of Holland and Flanders (NVAO).

Programme Structure

The master's program Sustainable Energy Technology trains engineers with a broadly based knowledge of energy technology. To provide a good technical base, the program starts with a number of basic courses. This knowledge is then applied in the specialization courses. This fundamental knowledge is a primary requirement for evaluation of the different technologies and assessment of their feasibility.

Courses and internship

Also required is an understanding of the energy infrastructure and the community in which the technology is to be applied. You will therefore take courses in which the introduction of technical innovations in the community is a central element, together with attention for economics and consumer behavior. You will learn how to apply the knowledge that you have gained in projects involving both the system-based and interdisciplinary approaches. Elective courses which you choose together with your supervisor allow you to gain more specialized knowledge, which you will need for your final project and your internal research traineeship.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score (Grade C): 180

    The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

    Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

  • Minimum required score: 90

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

There are a number of general requirements for admission to this Master's degree program:

  • A relevant (for instance Mechanical engineering, Chemical engineering, Electrical engineering or Applied physics) Bachelor's degree (or equivalent), based on a program of sufficient academic level and quality to be able to complete this Master's degree program.
  • Students hoping to participate in selection for the Amandus H. Lundqvist scholarship require a CGPA of 80% minimum.
  • You must be able to demonstrate sufficient command of the English language in which the program is taught.To prove sufficient command of the English language you should submit an Academic IELTS or TOEFL test.

Tuition Fee Per Year

  • EUR 15000 International
  • EUR 2006 EU/EEA

Funding

Scholarships and grants
Various scholarships are open to students wishing to follow a Master's Program at the TU/e. A requirement of most scholarships is that you have been admitted to a Master's degree program before you may apply to the scholarship. It is therefore important that you take good note of the scholarships deadlines and apply well in advance to the TU/e Master's degree program of your choice in time to meet the scholarship deadline. Students from EU countries may also optionally get a grant.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
