Msc stands for Master of Science. It is a postgraduate educational master's degree given by universities in a wide number of nations. The degree is typically studied for in the sciences and occasionally in the social sciences.

Materials science is a field that strives to meet the needs of manufacturing and other industries that rely on resources. As natural and renewable sources are diminishing, students who become material scientists may develop new supplies by applying chemistry, biotechnology, and engineering.

Estonia is among other things known for its forests (they make up almost half of the territory) and for being the only country in Europe with almost total 4G network coverage. Estonia provides high-level and internationally recognized education, and many universities in the country offer degree programs in English.

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 TalTech University launched in cooperation with University of Tartu a joint master programme Materials and Processes of Sustainable Energetics which teaches different sustainable energy methods.... [-]
