Overview

The Master's Programme in Mechanical Engineering – Energy, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration aims at a deep understanding of the knowledge and skills obtained at the Mechanical Engineering degree (first cycle). The graduates will be able to develop professional regulated acts, namely by accessing the Qualification Degree E2 established by the Portuguese engineers public association, Ordem dos Engenheiros.

This MSc Programme provides a solid professional engineering specialization, strengthening the graduates’ innovation capacities as well as their ability to integrate knowledge in complex problem solving with firm Autonomy.

Aligned with this professional perspective, the students can choose to develop, as the final phase of their studies, either a thesis of strict scientific nature, an original and innovative project or an internship in a company followed by a critical report.

Objectives

The main objectives of the Master's Programme in Mechanical Engineering – Energy, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration are to deepen the knowledge on Mechanical Engineering subjects, energy profile, with special focus on heating ventilation and air conditioning of buildings, as well as industrial and commercial refrigeration. The students will improve their skills in a vast variety of subjects and will finish the program with the ability to:

  • Solve problems on energy management, renewable energies, energetic and environmental sustainability, and numerical modeling;
  • Design air conditioning and refrigeration systems, integrating the most advanced technological developments, abiding the applicable standards and legislation, namely of the Energy Performance Certification of Buildings;
  • Ensure the maintenance management of physical assets required by the functional needs, complexity and technological dimension of the facilities.
