Mission and goals
The Master of Science in Energy Engineering prepares professionals to design, to select and to use the main technologies in energy transformation; to actively follow scientific improvements and to operate effectively in a competitive and multi-disciplinary industrial context, characterized by significant environmental, regulatory and safety constraints. Students will analyze broad themes as well as specific subjects for which both a rigorous methodological approach to thermodynamics and an open attitude towards related interdisciplinary topics are required. Graduates can find employment in several sectors: in the technical area of designing, of testing, of running and of maintaining the energy systems such as heating and cooling systems, thermal power and hydro-electric power plants, engines, oil and gas fields. Job opportunities can also be found in the energy management area, in utilities and public boards that supply energy as electricity and natural gas. The programme is taught in English.
Five tracks available: Power Production; Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning; Oil and Gas Engineering; Renewables and Environmental Sustainability (offered on Piacenza campus); Energy for Development.
