The primary objective of the Energy Engineering program from University of Trento is to improve the well-being of individuals and society, focusing on the quality of urban and natural environments, the enhancement of quality of life and security, and the harmonious development of society through the innovation of products.


Key Features

The Interuniversity Master in Energy Engineering (Master degree class LM-30) is offered by the University of Trento, Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering in collaboration with the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Faculty of Science and Technology.

The programme is geared to preparing a professional figure able to address complex and advanced problems of energy engineering and/or requiring an interdisciplinary approach in the design, implementation, management and upgrading of production systems, transport and efficient use of energy.

Career opportunities

The course aims at training experts who will be able to deal with the various aspects of planning, implementing and managing integrated energy systems, such as production plants supplied from renewable sources, low energy consumption buildings and transport networks for electric and thermal energy from the production site to local consumption sites. Energy engineers will work as independent professionals or in public and private companies, industries of the energetic and thermo-energetic sectors and public and private utilities. Graduates can move on to Doctoral Schools.

The professional profile of the master graduate in Energy Engineering is oriented towards the design and operation of small to medium size energy production plants, in particular exploiting renewable sources, combined heat and power (CHP) in district heating, and of energy-efficient industrial systems and buildings. Energy conversion, energy distribution and energy utilisation systems are the main areas of interest.
