Take your first step towards engineering the future at the InnoEnergy Master’s School. Our MSc programmes enhance your engineering and technical knowledge, and develop the business, innovation and entrepreneurial skills you need to meet the demands of the world’s sustainable energy industries. Create a life-long network of like-minded partners, connect with international colleagues, peers and professionals, and discover how to launch your career in sustainable energy engineering here.

The opportunities that KIC InnoEnergy gives us are hard to quantify: we meet companies and start-ups, we exchange ideas and cooperate with hundreds of other people with the same goals in life, we develop business knowledge and soft skills that normal engineering degrees would never support you to do. KIC InnoEnergy doesn’t just support us, it encourages us to think outside of the box, to believe in our ideas and fight for them. In the past year and a half I’ve met some of the most interesting and inspiring people I’ve ever met in my life
