Today, sustainability is the key needed in order to make the necessary improvements in energy supply, and more specifically in terms of energy utilisation and consumption. Natural resources are being depleted and are undergoing more complex procurement procedures, therefore creating the need to have a specialised understanding in the field of the sustainable energy systems of tomorrow.
Sustainability is the key to future development, especially when it comes to energy utilisation and consumption. As natural resources become more and more limited or can only be won through complicated and expensive procedures, the utilisation of energy in a sustainable way is becoming more important and lucrative. This programme combines an education in energy systems with respect to sustainable energy resources, energy efficiency, the continuous replacement of traditional energy systems by sustainable and energy efficient systems and the management of (international) energy-related projects. Special emphasis is placed on learning and working in multicultural teams, as well as strengthening foreign language skills.
The focus of the programme is built around the principles on how to manage the demand for safe, cost-efficient sustainable energy systems. Therefore, the curriculum contains courses that will enrich a students’ knowledge in areas like the utilisation of sustainable energy resources, energy systems and distribution, both in terms of technical knowledge and practical skill development. Furthermore, courses covering topics such as the business of energy, legal frameworks, both EU and international regulations, and the ecological evaluation of energy flows will be examined in detail.
Graduates will work as (senior) Engineers or project leaders in the field of energy efficiency, in which they will be able to identify potential energy-saving and/or energy efficiency or project planning, and the realisation of sustainable energy power plants. This means that graduates will be able to find jobs in:
- Energy-intensive industries such as with utility companies
- Energy consulting
- Energy Engineering for systems such as in power plants or photovoltaics
- Energy technician
Graduates’ tasks could be:
- Planning and understanding large-scale energy generators, working with wind-power, hydro-power
- Identification of energy saving potential through the recommendation of appropriate products/systems
- Implementation of energy efficient projects
- Operating and maintaining energy systems
