The Energy and Climate programme at University of Antwerp is specially designed with an  international audience in mind. It is aimed at individuals, professionals and students, who wish to develop their skills and knowledge with a view to career advancement. Candidates may come from universities and colleges, research institutions, public organisations and private companies. 


Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. 'Think globally, act locally' is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. Finding feasible pathways to transform energy systems poses huge challenges for all of us. On the one hand, drastic change requires fresh ideas, new ways of approaching problems and the discovery of unexplored paths. On the other hand, the solid laws of physics and eternal endeavours of human beings constrain freedom of action.

The postgraduate of Energy and Climate at University of Antwerp is innovative and unique in its approach:

  • The lectures focus on energy for the future: energy efficiency and renewable energy are studied from the energy end-use and services perspective.
  • The future is uncertain: debated policy topics are covered by two lecturers, diverging in analysis and proposed solutions.
  • Our future is common: the course invites a broad audience, from non-technical scholars to certified engineers, who are all eager to learn about new perspectives and approaches for addressing energy and climate issues.

The postgraduate Energy & Climate builds upon a bachelor or master degree. It gives your curriculum vitae added value on the labour market. The programme focuses largely on professional skills, so the knowledge you acquire can immediately be used in the working environment and will also help to extend your network.


All study programmes at the University of Antwerp received accredidation from NVAO (Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation).
