The 2nd-cycle study programme in Energy Technology leads to "magisterij" (master's degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Energy Technology. Graduates shall master and solve issues related to their field of expertise and be able to implement them optimally in their organizations. Furthermore, graduates will be able to design, lead, manage, and maintain both small and large energy systems.


The 2nd-cycle (master's) study programme in Energy Technology builds upon the 1st-cycle academic study programme in Energy Technology. Students expand their knowledge in a wider field of expertise, gain competences, including seeking new sources of knowledge in the professional and scientific field, the application of scientific research methods to a wide range of problems and in new or changed circumstances, undertaking responsibility for the management of the most complex operating systems and for the development of critical reflection as well as of social and communication skills for managing teamwork.

The basic goal of the 2nd-cycle study programme in Energy Technology is the education and training of the development and managerial staff for all levels of economic and non-economic sectors and the public administration in the field of energy technology. These are the ones who must continuously master and resolve development issues in their own field, and who must be capable of implementing these into the optimal operation of their organisation as an energy system.

The goals of the study programme are, in terms of its content, oriented towards:
  • identification, analysis and organisation of energy systems, separately for each group: Hydro-energy, Thermo-energy, and Nuclear-energy Systems,
  • study of the most complex technical and technological operations and processes in an organisation, with an emphasis on the management of energy systems,
  • identification and consideration of ecologic standards, operations and activities in energy systems,
  • application of information management systems in energy systems,
  • understanding of the operation and management of an organisation as a system,
  • training for complex scientific research work in an interdisciplinary field of energy systems and energy technology,
  • training for further studies (Ph.D.).
