About

The Master of Science in Energy Engineering at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is a multi-university master programme, jointly managed by the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering of University of Trento (administrative premises).

This Master of Science in Energy Engineering at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is the result of the increasing spreading of technologies connected with the spread generation and the optimized management of energy and the consequent increasing demand of engineers able to develop and propose efficient and innovative technological solutions to deal with the issues deriving from the progressive depletion of fossil non-renewable sources and the environmental impacts due to the use of energy. The course contents focuses on the issues of energy efficiency in buildings and in productive cycles, the energy production from middle-small sized plants of renewable sources, which have a reduced environmental impact and serve customers in the surrounding areas.

Employment prospects

The course aims at training experts able to deal with the various aspects of planning, implementing and managing the integrated energy systems, such as:

  • production plants supplied from renewable sources
  • low energy consumption buildings
  • networks able to transport electric and thermic energy from the production site to the local consumption sites.

Energy engineers work as independent professionals or in public and private companies, industries of the energetic and thermo-energetic sectors and public and private utilities. Graduates might be admitted to PhD programmes in the field.

Well prepared and ready for the job market. On the website of Alma Laurea you can check statistical data about graduates’ satisfaction and their employability.
