Energy Engineering

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

Energy engineering is a field of manufacturing that refers to the production and distribution of power and electricity. Those who study energy engineering use mathematical models to determine potential energy production sites, conduct laboratory experiments to understand engineering processes and inspect equipment to ensure regulation compliance.

South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. It is divided into nine provinces. South Africa is not only a jumping off point, it is itself a fantastic destination rich in culture, fauna & flora and history.

Pretoria city is to the north of Gauteng province and is among the capital cities of South Africa. It has three administrative sections the East, West and North. Pretoria city has an education system with tertiary and secondary education.

Master in Energy

The Institutional Research Theme “Energy” strives to provide the best balance between the University’s current research activities and the energy focus areas that are prioritised by Government, with an initial focus on electrical energy. This will set the University on the road towards national relevancy as it will be searching for solutions to South Africa’s energy problems.

The main research themes include:

Energy Production (This includes all viable energy production technologies, ranging from coal to nuclear to renewables.) Energy Distribution (This includes highly relevant topics such as “smart grids” and energy storage, which are gaining importance in the light of the increasing contribution of renewable energies such as solar and wind energy.) Energy Optimisation (The majority of energy plants are not very efficient, which creates considerable opportunities for research to improve thermal efficiency, improve efficiency by managing the demand side, plant lifetime extension, etc.) Advanced Materials (Almost all energy systems make use of advanced materials. Specific focus materials would be, for example, high-temperature materials and graphite.)   Policy, Economics and Society (Many energy systems do not fail technically, but fail because of poor policy decisions, legal shortcomings, poor economic modelling, poor project management, or poor societal management strategies.) Environment (Climate change is seen as a large component within the energy sector, notably aspects that link to greenhouse gases, nuclear and other waste, and carbon footprint.) ... [-]
