Come join us in pioneering the future

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 explored by complicated and expensive processes, the utilisation of energy in a sustainable way is becoming more important and lucrative. This degree 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 as well as the management of (international) energy-related projects. Special emphasis is placed on learning and working in multicultural teams.

Did you know that ...

... solar energy is the largest energy resource in the world, even larger than our fossil resources? Utilising wind means to cause the lowest environmental impact. Utilising energy efficiency potentials is the most effective way to save energy, the environment and become independent from other countries.
