Overview

In this master track, you will focus on becoming an authority on Sustainable Energy Systems. You will learn to model and validate systems with multiple inputs and outputs using both white box modeling and system identification. You focus on Sustainable Energy Systems including sustainable technology and Energy System Integration (ESI). You focus on control applications used in industry. Furthermore, you can choose modules about Data Analytics or Power Supply.

The course consists of:

  • lectures
  • individual and group assignments
  • experimental research and laboratory exercises
  • model development and simulation exercises
  • group cases
  • minor projects
  • a major project including a management game

Teaching methods and specialization

The academic year comprises of semesters, during which you will be taught by means of lectures, lab sessions, and minor projects. After the taught component of the course, you will do a graduation project (thesis). The total study load is 2520 hours (90 ECTS credits).

The courses are thematically grouped in study units of 15 EC each, called modules. Within the module typically you start with a lecture on theoretical knowledge, then you get practical experience by applying the gained knowledge in labs, followed by applying both theoretical and practical insights in solving a problem from industry in a minor project. These allow you to specialize in relevant topics.

Profession

The sustainable energy engineer will have an active role in the transition towards a sustainable energy system. He will work on the development of technology, models and smart control of sustainable systems for energy generation, storage or distribution at local, regional or (inter)national level. He may be employed by SME’s, grid operators, energy providers or governments to develop innovative energy systems or have a role towards maintaining the energy balance on an (inter)national scale.

Your future

The HAN has a broad network of energy companies, from grid operators to energy providers to SME’s developing new technology. Industries and companies associated with the HAN and this programme acknowledge the need for Sustainable Energy System Engineers at Master level. The content of this Master programme is based on our constant interactions with our industrial partners and our applied research focuses on their needs and interests.
