The Master's Program Sustainable Energy Technology from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) trains its students to be able to anticipate the change processes in the energy market. Social demand for sustainable energy supplies is growing. 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.


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.

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.
A PhD program
After graduating from the Master's Program Sustainable Energy Technology you can opt for a PhD program whereby you will be working for the department and have an important position: to uphold the reputation and continuity of the research of department. A PhD program lasts for four years, after which you will gain your doctorate title (Dr.).

Course Content

Program 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
