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.
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):
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.In professional activities the Eindhoven Sustainable Energy Engineers always bear in mind the economic, social, environmental and ethical aspects. The demand for Sustainable Energy Technology engineers is strong, in the energy industry, in related fields such as the supply industry, consultancies and in other parties involved in energy policy, such as local, national and international government, at research institutes or engineering firms. However, you can also choose a scientific career.
This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of Holland and Flanders (NVAO).
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.
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.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
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.

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