Technology for producing renewable energy is constantly being developed, whereas often the more challenging aspect of the energy transition is changing people's attitudes

Søren Hermansen, Samsø Energy Academy, Samsø, Denmark

Have you ever wondered how your community (village, neighbourhood, company, institution) can make the transition from fossil sourced energy to more sustainable sources? This key issue is the essence of the master Energy for Society program*.

The aim of the master program is to educate Energy Transition Strategists focussing on local and regional levels of energy transition. Upon graduation, you will have a broad competence base ranging from how to build (energy) communities, sustainable energy technologies, sustainable business models, governance, communication to spatial transformations. This will enable you to initiate and support local and regional energy transition projects entrepreneurially, i.e. help define and implement community-based projects that create social, environmental and monetary value. You will be able to catalyse complex bottom-up energy transition processes and foster change in people's 'energy behaviour'. Working with communities, cooperatives, clusters of companies, municipalities and regional organisations you will establish a dialogue between different groups of stakeholders.... [-]

STUDY ENERGY IN THE UK

Across the Pond partners with some of the top UK universities for Energy, across a variety of disciplines. The UK has long been a major contributor to the innovation of energy, including oil and gas, renewable energy, and students who study in the UK benefit from intensive learning, opportunities to find placements at major Energy companies, and a concentration on both academic skill and employability.

BENEFITS OF STUDYING ENGINEERING IN THE UK

Shorter courses: Most Master’s programs are only one year long. Students can obtain a degree in a shorter amount of time compared to studying in Latin America. Funding from Latin American countries for these subjects is also available. Focus: UK universities do not require general education courses; students will be focusing on Energy from Day 1! Employment opportunities: Many universities in the UK focus on having staff that are active in their fields, helping to provide an employability perspective and to generate learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Furthermore, many energy courses offer the opportunity to take on a placement, whether as an additional year on their degree or as a short-term opportunity during their degree. Either way, UK engineering students graduate with readiness to work. ... [-]

The master’s programme in Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment will offer students a comprehensive education and the engineering tools necessary to solve the future challenges of how to best use our energy and finite natural resources.

Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment at KTH

Students gain advanced competence in chemical engineering and obtain modern tools to analyse various processes, such as the production of biofuels, energy storage or the purification of drinking water – through the whole chain, from raw materials to products. The analyses often include aspects of chemicals, heat, electricity and environment.

A large number of elective courses allows students to tailor their education to meet personal and professional goals, and complementary skills such as problem-solving and teamwork are emphasised in many of the courses, as is written and oral communication. The courses are, therefore, to a large degree based on seminars and project assignments as a complement to traditional lectures.... [-]

A global consensus on the urgency to enact measures to mitigate climate change has emerged in recent years, culminating in December 2015 with the Paris Agreement at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21). 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, global climate deal to limit to 2°C the rise in global temperatures. The agreement also states its aim of limiting the increase to 1.5°C, which would significantly reduce the risk of climate change for ecosystems and human populations. The future of energy production and particularly renewable energy generation capacities lies at the heart of efforts to reach these new goals.... [-]
