About

Energy Systems from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) aims to prepare the science and technology leaders in emerging energy system research.

Overview

Energy Systems from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) is designed to combine optimization, computer science, complex systems, statistical physics, control theory, and energy system engineering to develop innovative approaches to new and challenging programs in the design, optimization, and control of the electrical grid, natural gas networks and other complex engineered networks.

Graduates with Energy Systems from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) will be able to:

  • Formulate/model real-world problems using the language of modern theoretical engineering;
  • Use the most appropriate modern mathematical/computational/software tools to successfully solve an engineering problem in energy systems and related disciplines;
  • Develop new mathematical/computational methods or adapt existing methods to solve a particular engineering/networking problem;
  • Implement algorithms into efficient/scalable and reliable software;
  • Work with technical literature (e.g. conduct bibliographical research, read and critically analyze scientific articles, use scientific metrics and important databases);
  • Operate and make measurements with hardware energy and related sensing devices;
  • Present results to different audiences (engineers, industry, researchers, users, stakeholders, etc.) in an effective oral and written manner.
