Sustainable Energy

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.

A Master in Sustainable Energy is an interdisciplinary study of the methods the world must employ in order to fulfill its energy needs. The biggest challenge is how to meet these requirements through the implementation of new law and policy and despite continued, rapid, globalization.

Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

Masters in Sustainable Energy in Europe 2017. ACCREDITATION Master accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Opening in September 2016. KEY WORDS Renewable feedstocks, eco-technology, processing, design, assessment, environmental burdens, green business, social responsability SCHOOL PROPOSING THE MASTER Mines Albi, in co-accreditation with Institut Mines Telecom, Paris, France LANGUAGE OF TEACHING English INCENTIVE Given the current context of natural resource depletion, environmental and public health crises related to air and water pollution, pressures on energy supplies, we are facing a paradigm shift. The linear model “take, make, consume and dispose” is progressively being replaced by a 4R approach “repair, refurbish, reuse and recycle”. The circular economy is becoming day after day a new development strategy for nations. Better eco-design, waste prevention and reuse bring significant net savings for businesses, while also reducing environmental harm and bringing new job opportunities. Turning biomass and waste into a valuable resource is at the heart of this strategy. Generating new materials, processes and markets requires global high-level training, including science, technology, regulatory knowledge, management and economics. All these innovative systems will emerge at the crossroads of process engineering, chemistry, fluid mechanics, thermal science, environmental sciences and economics as well as social sciences and humanities. BiWEM was created to satisfy the growing needs of this dynamic sector. COURSE AIMS The objectives of BiWEM are to provide students with a sound theoretical and practical specialised knowledge in the field of biomass and waste processing.

Building Sustainability (MBA)

TU-Campus EUREF
Campus Full time 3 semesters October 2017 Germany Berlin

The MBA program Building Sustainability – Management Methods for Energy Efficiency will teach students skills, methods and concepts to consider different approaches, to understand them and to align them for reaching sustainable solutions. [+]

Program Background The concept of the German “Energiewende” – literally, energy transition – has gained international attention. It includes a variety of measures that aim at making Europe’s largest economy free of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. In order to attain this, all areas of energy production and consumption will have to go through a transition process. Besides mobility and industry, buildings are therefore one of the key factors for a successful Energiewende. Most of all, this implies re-directing from a mainly fossil-fueled energy supply towards renewable energies and a much more energy-efficient use of energy in buildings and urban areas. This is one of the largest and most urgent challenges of current urban development and other social disciplines. Finding solutions to such a complex challenge means that a multitude of actors from business, society, and public administration take part in the process and influence it with their differing and often conflicting interests. Resulting from this is the need for skilled workers who both understand all stakeholders and are able to work with them. Building Sustainability Strategic concepts for communication and cooperation in large-scale projects are crucial for their success. Whereas, “simply” building a house has become a manageable task, things become much more complicated when considering the urban environment and wider interests such as energy efficiency. The Master program, Building Sustainability focuses therefore, not only on technical and economic perspectives, but also aims at imparting relevant knowledge from other disciplines. This means that the scope of the program is... [-]
