Energy

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Energy studies teach about how power demands are met. This may be through conventional means, or alternative energy sources such as wind and solar energy. Some programs might explore the development of new sources.

With university education being upper most level in the education system of the Belgium, the government has put more emphasis to make sure that the students’ lives is made as simple as possible through the loan and grants programs.

Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance Nice--Berlin

Centre international de formation européenne (CIFE)
Campus Full time 1 year

A unique graduate programme in Global Energy transition and Governance. Anglophone, takes place in Nice and Berlin [+]

Masters in Energy in Brussels in Belgium. The Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give a deep understanding of the complexity of the current energy transformations in Europe and worldwide. The programme takes place in Berlin and Nice. The programme offers a unique, multidisciplinary approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in the field of energy studies: It analyses the links between the different levels of energy governance, from an international to a local level, offering problem-focused learning at the crossroads of theory and practice. The one-year programme stretches over four terms and takes place in two study locations: Nice and Berlin Students who successfully complete the programme acquire 90 ECTS credits. The programme is structured into four terms: The first term (October-December) in Nice encompasses classes on the basics of the four energy modules: International energy governance, Economic energy governance, the EU energy governance and Energy and territories. Each module is complemented by seminars dealing with current energy issues. An academic or professional expert is invited for each event. For their second term (January-March) students move on to Berlin where teaching in the four modules continues in the form of workshops. Each module organises a half-day workshop with an expert. Students prepare the workshops in group work delivering papers on themes linked to the topic of the seminar (climate negotiations, energy stock exchange, the role of the EU interconnections in the European energy market, the EU funds and the territorial energy policy). To better understand the local energy challenges in the framework of the German Energy Transition Field, visits will also be organised in co-operation with local institutions and companies. Another focus of this term will be put on the methodology classes, one dedicated to the research work and the Master’s thesis, the second one to project management. In April students return to Nice. The third term (April-June) aims at deepening their knowledge on the four energy modules. A special focus is also given to the methodological support for the students’ work on their thesis including individual meetings with the academic supervisors. In the two simulations the participants will forge their negotiation techniques with regard to the construction of wind farms at local level and work out of a strategy for an international energy cooperation. Written and oral exams in June will conclude this term. From July to August students will work on their Master’s thesis. All along the summer, supervisors will be at their disposal to follow up their work. The defence of the students’ Master’s thesis will take place in Nice in mid-September.

European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management

European Master in Renewable Energy and European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management
Campus Full time

SESyM focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of energy systems. It provides management and communication skills, as well as the necessary technical knowledge to tackle the challenge of the energy system transition. [+]

Objectives The aim of the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management is to provide postgraduate students with the skills required for employment in the Sustainable Energy industry. Students will specialise in business case analysis, modelling,project design and implementation. As a result of the foreign contact the course requires, our students will have the international outlook essential to the industry HR needs. By structuring the course in three sections, students are guaranteed to spend time in at least two different EU countries and make contact with a wide range of European institutes and companies involved in the sustainable energy sector. The participating universities are all well-established in training and the education sector as well as being recognised at an international level for their work in the field of sustainable energy system management. Structure The course is divided into three sections. In the first semester(September/October to January), students acquire a solid foundation in systems management. In the second semester (February to June), they specialise in a chosen topic at a different university. At the end of the course, students complete a six-month practical or research project. The entire programme is run on a modular basis with credits awarded for passing each section and the successful completion of the project. A total of 90 ECTS credits (30 for each section of the course) are required with a satisfactory level of achievement in all the sections to obtain the European Master degree. The core provides a solid foundation in systems management with legal, environmental, economic,social and technical aspects. Theoretical courses which also examine the socioeconomic issues surrounding the deployment of these technologies are supported by laboratory workshops. The studies for the core will be done in English. The student can choose one of the following: Hanze UAS, The Netherlands for the core taught in English Università di Pisa, Italy for the core taught in English The Core providers all teach these subjects: Systems management with legal, environmental, economic, social and technical aspects System integration and planning Modelling Scenario development Strategic decision-making Communication Each University has its own teaching methods - distribution of modules can be organised differently - nevertheless we ensure that at the end of the core semester all SESyM students have the same understanding and the same knowledge of systems management, enabling them to follow any of the offered specialisations. 30 ECTS credits will be awarded for passing the core semester following harmonised learning outcomes. A specialisation focused on a particular topic selected from: system integration and optimisation or sustainable energy management. Specialisations are all taught in English. Participating universities are willing to provide the above-mentioned specialisations. However, their effective realisation will depend on the final number of students who register. Normally, this decision is taken at the end of July. Students whose specialisation is cancelled will be offered a suitable alternative. The specialisation sections run from February to the end of May or June depending on the specialisation. The student specialises in one of the following: System Integration and Optimisation – taught at Hanze UAS Sustainable Energy Management – taught at the University of Zaragoza Upon completion of the specialisation, the student gains practical or research experience through a project undertaken in an industry, a research laboratory or at the university. A wide variety of projects can be proposed and it gives flexibility to the student and the project provider to define the project. The student is welcome to propose his/her own project. EUREC and the course directors continuously contact renewable energy companies throughout the year to encourage them to propose a student project. Yet,students should not expect to get a list of projects to choose from. Students are expected to look for companies or research centres wishing to offer them a project individually. A qualified person from the specialisation University will give students advice about how to proceed in finding the best project to suit their qualifications and expectations.
