Why study Energy and Environmental Technology?
Do you want to learn how to produce clean energy without harming the planet? Are you interested in technology used for reducing gas and water pollution? Would you like to learn how to estimate the costs of implementing such technology and thereby to create a more sustainable development?
A master's degree in Energy and Environmental Technology will give you the opportunity to explore this field, ranging from planning and controlling industrial processes, to knowledge of how we can prevent environmental threats and explore environmentally friendly energy sources, both through the use of experimental equipment and via advanced modelling and simulation tools.
Where can I work?
Environmental issues impact society and the demand for clean energy sources increases.
With a master's degree in Energy and Environmental Technology, you will be qualified to work within process safety and impact assessment, design and operation of cleaning processes as well as production, administration and distribution of energy. You will work within the public and private sector as well as research institutions dealing with safety and analyses concerning the environment and energy issues.
What you will learn
The master in Energy and Environmental Technology provides you with specialized skills and knowledge in the following areas:
Alternative energy systems
Heat and mass transfer
Modelling and simulation
A study plan describes the content, structure and organization of a study programme. To each study plan there is a set of subject plans that describes the different subjects. In the subject plan you will also find a reading list. Below you will find a study model that shows you which subjects that are taught each term. In the study model you'll also find links to each subject plan.Link to the latest published study plan
