Master of Science in Materials and Processes of Sustainable Energetics

Tallinn University of Technology
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Estonia Tallinn

The programme offers a new and unique approach to energy issues and does not teach how to produce more energy but how to use energy more efficiently! The curriculum provides education in alternative energy materials science and engineering with a strong technology component with specialisations on either materials or processes in sustainable energetics. [+]

MSc Degrees in Energy. Materials and Processes of Sustainable Energetics Joint Programme with University of Tartu Degree awarded: Master of Science in Engineering (MSc) Workload: 120 ECTS Language of instruction: English Duration: 2 years Number of places available: 17 Number of full tuition fee waivers: 15 Pre-Requisites: Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in natural sciences or engineering www.ttu.ee/sustainableenergetics The programme offers a new and unique approach to energy issues and does not teach how to produce more energy but how to use energy more efficiently! The curriculum provides education in alternative energy materials science and engineering with a strong technology component with specialisations on either materials or processes in sustainable energetics. The goal of this programme is to educate specialists who are able to design, develop and improve materials for use in sustainable energy systems. The programme offers a joint degree from two of the biggest and most respected universities in Estonia: Tallinn Tech and the University of Tartu. Key features Integrating lectures, laboratory, theoretical classes and experience in industries Professors of the programme are highly recognised scientists. In 2013 Professor Enn Mellikov received the Estonian National Science Award in the field of solar energy Specialisation in Materials will concentrate on solar panels and fuel cells Specialisation in Processes will teach all about the different ways to produce energy: oil shale, wind energy, water, etc. Students have the possibility to take part in exchange programmes in Europe and the United States, e.g. in the University of California, Berkeley Future career options Since the beginning of the programme, almost 50% of the graduates have continued their studies at PhD level in Tallinn University of Technology or in other universities in Europe or America. This has the result of many career possibilities as a researcher in the field of fuel cells and solar panels for material specialisation students whereas processes students are demanded in industries related to sustainable energetics. Course outline The goal of the programme is to educate engineers and material scientists in the field of sustainable energetics. For that reason there are two specializations to choose between: Specialization on Materials will concentrate on solar panels and fuel cells Specialization on Processes will teach all about the different ways to produce energy: oil shale, wind energy, water etc. It also gives an overview about how to analyse different methods and how to combine them Master's programme is connected to the industry and will offer experience in the Estonian Energy Company already during the studies. The main aim of the curriculum is to educate engineers able to solve or minimize problems connected first of all with the utilization but also with the conversion, transportation and storage of energy. The curriculum provides education in alternative energy materials science and engineering at MSc level with a strong technology component. The curriculum offers an integrated approach towards current and long term materials and energetics issues, focusing on technologies and concepts in sustainable development of industrial production and use of energy. The courses will be taught both, in Tallinn University of Technology and University of Tartu in compact courses integrating lectures, laboratory and theoretical classes blocked to just several days duration enabling also the integration of foreign visiting students. Energy is becoming more and more a major cost factor for all the players in the energy business due to increased worldwide consumption on the one hand and on the other hand a need to restrict the production of greenhouse gases. By 2030, the world's energy needs are expected to be 50% greater than today. Nowadays, much of this energy comes from non-renewable sources, such as fossil fuels- coal, oil and gas. These fuels are being used faster rate than they are produced and may be unavailable for future generations. At the same time, there is a need for a 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to avoid serious changes in the Earth's climate system. In 2009 the faculty of Chemical and Materials Technology in Tallinn University of Technology launched in cooperation with University of Tartu a joint master programme „Materials and Processes of Sustainable Energetics“ which teaches different sustainable energy methods. Keywords such as solar energy, fuel cells, biomass, and wind energy are just the tip of the iceberg to describe the programme. Student can choose specialization either in materials of sustainable energetics or processes of sustainable energetics. Specialization on materials of sustainable energetics will give the student knowledge about solar panels and fuel cells- there is already a spin-off company Crystalsol which specializes on building solar panels. Students who choose to study processes of sustainable energetics will learn different ways how to produce and combine sustainable energy- solar, wind, biomass, etc. Volume of the programme is 2 years and graduates will be awarded with the Master of Science in Engineering. Programme specific requirements Please pay attention as this programme you are applying for, has specific prerequisites: CV - working experience benefits. Bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences or Bachelor’s degree in Technical Fields.

MSc Degrees in Energy. AN INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO ENERGY CHALLENGES Our energy system is rapidly evolving. There are big challenges ahead of us, including mitigating climate change, securing our long-term energy supply, and providing access to sustainable energy for everyone. This two-year Master’s programme in Energy Science at Utrecht University offers an interdisciplinary approach for anyone prepared to tackle these challenges. Systems approach Energy collection, conversion, transport, storage, distribution, and end-use application are all steps in providing energy services to society. All these elements form an energy system, which is complex and interacts with other systems in a multitude of ways. Transitions in energy systems and the merits of innovation for the individual components of each can only be analysed in the context of the complete system. This is why we place energy systems analysis at the very centre of our Energy Science programme. Interdisciplinary Analysing energy systems requires a thorough knowledge of the fundamental scientific and technological principles of the discipline. This knowledge enables you to understand how the characteristics of individual technologies can influence their performance, as well as the impact of market and policy contexts on energy systems. This is why both economics and policy studies are also covered the programme. Research in energy science The programme has been developed by the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. This institute investigates and develops processes and opportunities for innovative change for sustainability. Energy and resource systems are just one of the areas researched at the institute, and this cutting-edge research informs the teaching on the programme.
