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.
Sustainable energy programs often focus on science and math principles that apply to energy conservation. Students may learn about alternative energy sources such as biofuels, solar panels and wind turbines, and how they can be incorporated in today’s energy systems.
The people, language, and culture of the Netherlands is referred to as "Dutch". A modern European country today, Netherlands preserved its highly international character and is known for its liberal mentality. The Netherlands has many universities. The country has recently converted their own titles into the bachelor/master system. There are two types of universities: Academic (focussing more on theoretical knowledge, aka "Universiteit") or Applied Sciences (focussing more on practical knowledge, aka "Hogeschool")
Top Master Programs in Sustainable Energy in Netherlands 2018/2019
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. [+]
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....

The aim of the master programme 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. [+]
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.... [-]
Science for Energy and Sustainability (SES) is a two-year interdisciplinary track within the Master's programmes Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy. [+]
Science for Energy and Sustainability (SES) is a two-year interdisciplinary track within the Master's programmes Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy.
It combines ‘hard’ scientific research with the analysis of societal issues, business models and government regulations. It is a joint degree programme with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam so you will benefit from the expertise, networks and research projects at both universities.Is Science for Energy and Sustainability in Amsterdam the track for me?
