As natural resources become more and more limited or can only be explored by complicated and expensive processes, the utilisation of energy in a sustainable way is becoming more important and lucrative.
This Sustainable Energy Systems degree programme at University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria combines an education in energy systems with respect to sustainable energy resources, energy efficiency, the continuous replacement of traditional energy systems by sustainable and energy efficient systems as well as the management of (international) energy-related projects. Special emphasis is placed on learning and working in multicultural teams.
Why Study With Us?
The Master of Sustainable Energy Systems programme is designed to provide students from various engineering disciplines with a deeper understanding on how to develop, plan and market efficient technologies for sustainable energy production and conversion, while also equipping students with the necessary skills in order to become an international engineer.
The core of the programme is focused around renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics, wind, hydropower, and biomass, and how to use them efficiently. As such, the programme provides students with both a technical and practical approach that is needed when dealing with a variety of different issues. For example, you would have the appropriate skills in order to communicate with a process engineer at the steel manufacturing plant or solar facility, and would be able to accurately provide an energy-efficient (saving) solution.
