Master of Science in Energy Engineering

General

Program Description

Summary

The M.Sc. in Energy Engineering is aimed at Italian and foreign students and offers a good level of interdisciplinary preparation for working in professional, industry and research at international level in the field of the sustainable energy production, conversion, transportation, storage, and saving.

Learning by doing

The M.Sc. in Energy Engineering offers a unique international experience. The modules are taught in English, Free English classes are offered to Students, a Double Degree Program is available with Université Savoie Mont Blanc (Double Degree EMESB) and a new one with MCI Innsbruck (Double Degree EM3ES).

The M.Sc. in Energy Engineering is located at Savona Campus, where a unique Smart Polygeneration Microgrid is integrating PV fields, Geothermal Heat Pumps, Gas Cogenerative Turbines for fulfilling the Campus energy demand.

Career perspectives

Energy production and distribution companies, energy conversion manufacturing industries, energy engineering firms, research institutions, energy planning offices, and regulatory development.

What you will learn

Applying knowledge and understanding: Devise, plan, design and manage processes and systems through the use of models and experiments.

Making judgments: Analyze and solve complex problems related to the production, conversion, and storage of energy.

Communication skills: Explain energy issues to non-expert stakeholders.

Contents

The course consists of modules that include thermofluid dynamics and thermo-chemical dynamics, as well as fluid machinery and energy conversion systems (cogeneration, fuel cells, power plants from renewable energy sources and smart grids), traditional energy and civil engineering plants, electric networks, economics, available and emerging technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental monitoring.

The course is aimed at students seeking high qualification in the following main fields:

  • Energy conversion processes from chemical, biochemical, thermal sources into mechanical and electrical counterparts.
  • Sustainable & distributed energy: renewable energy (solar, geothermal, wind, hydro), fuel cells, biofuels, smart power grids, low emission power plants.
  • Sustainable development: C02 sequestration, LCA analysis, biomass exploitation, energy audit in buildings, energy from waste, recycling, modeling and experimental techniques devoted to optimum energy management.

The University offers the students a solid cultural and scientific education and gives them many instruments to face the professional future. It offers real possibilities of integration between theory and practice, also through stages with institutions and companies and training periods abroad. There are many different forms of collaboration and cooperation with foreign Universities and Institutions that allow a high mobility of professors and students from and towards foreign countries. At the moment, with more than 3,000 foreign students, the University went over the 8% mark of the total amount of registered students, establishing even more - and unlike the national data - its position as a point of attraction for the students that choose Italy for their University studies.
