The Sustainable Energy Systems programme prepares students for work in the broad field of energy system transformation towards a climate-neutral, economic and supply-secure future. The main technical perspective targets the transition of the electrical power system based on renewable energy. Knowledge of its future design is supplemented by competencies in sustainability and digitalization for smart grids and markets.
The course of study comprises of design, modelling, control and operation of electrical energy systems while considering sustainability perspectives. The course also prepares the students in distributed renewable generation, sector coupling with all energy sectors, and related energy market designs.
All courses are taught in English. The Master's programme also includes an industry internship to apply the knowledge to practical problems. In the final semester, the students work on their Master's thesis for six months on a full-time basis. Joint work in seminars, tutorials, labs, and project groups will strengthen their competencies. The international environment with students from various countries will broaden their horizons and enable them to interact respectfully in international teams and organisations.
