The Master's program in Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency from École de Technologie Supérieure is intended for professionals who are interested in acquiring advanced knowledge in the field of energy efficiency. Students also acquire scientific and technical knowledge about various forms of renewable energy, including wind, hydraulic, solar and geothermal energy.


Do you think the Internet will revolutionize the energy sector as it has done for communications? Are you convinced that social acceptance of energy-efficient buildings will arise from convincing performance indicators? Do you want to learn more about the socio-political and economic issues of various sources of energy? Would you like to play an active role in the development of sustainable cities? Then the Master's in Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency from École de Technologie Supérieure was made for you!

Whether you want to immerse yourself in the technologies of the future, earn yourself a promotion, or design innovative solutions, our program will meet your professional needs.

What will you learn in the Master’s program?

By doing your master's in renewable energies and energy efficiency at ÉTS, you will acquire scientific and technical knowledge about many forms of renewable energy, such as wind turbines, hydraulics, solar and geothermal power.

You will also broaden your horizons by developing a global vision of the world energy situation, its geopolitical and economic impacts, and the elements that differentiate Canada and Québec from other countries in the area of energy.

To be more specific, you will have the opportunity to acquire advanced knowledge in: 

  • Renewable energies;
  • Buildings of the future;
  • Optimizing the energy efficiency of existing buildings;
  • Integration and optimization of industrial processes;
  • Photovoltaic and thermal applications of solar energy;
  • Design of converters for power electronics;
  • Energy-efficient buildings, equipment and processes;
  • Measurement and verification of performance;
  • Controllable loads; 
  • Storage of electrical, mechanical and thermal energy;
  • Biomass, anaerobic digestion and gasification;
  • The energy of rivers and oceans;
  • Non-renewable energies;
  • Pre-feasibility and feasibility techno-economic analysis;
  • Demand management; 
  • Control, forecasting and optimization of energy systems.

And since more than 15 professors from three departments conduct research applicable to the environment sector, you will have access to several laboratories and lots of specialized equipment, including an intelligent mini-network integrated into our campus, a calibration bench for flow meters, and test benches for air, water and steam traps.
