A multi- and cross-disciplinary approach is adopted to energy and environmental problems, their solutions and the economic and social dimensions of sustainable development.
The Master's in Sustainable Energy Systems at Universidade de Aveiro is structured in such a way as to foster an understanding of the processes, technologies, economics, and politics associated with energy systems within the context of a sustainable supply and demand of energy.
It also focuses on the following issues: the processes of converting conventional and renewable energy resources, materials and technologies employed in the conversion and use of energy, methodologies of efficient energy use, instruments and measurement of energy and environmental processes, energy and environmental policies, the concepts of sustainable development and the politics leading to sustainable development.
The organisation of the programme around optional modules allows the student, on completion of a first year core curriculum, to opt for a more specialised programme, from amongst the principal areas of study on offer. In this way, students can broaden and extend their knowledge through a more specialised focus on a particular domain of Sustainable Energy Systems.
Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the degree, several Departments from the University of Aveiro are involved in the process, namely: Environmental Studies, Mechanical Engineering, Ceramics and Glass Engineering, and Physics.
The goals of this cycle of studies are fulfilled through the articulation of the specialised contents in the areas of energy, the environment, materials and management. The integration of these concepts will enable the Master in Sustainable Energy Systems to demonstrate the following competences:
