4 people

Our seven Masters programmes in sustainable energy offer you a rare combination of engineering and entrepreneurship. All our programmes deliver high quality content, covering a range of subjects considered crucial to meeting today’s global energy challenges.

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

I think that studying in two different locations has many advantages: experiencing different teaching approaches, learning different languages, meeting more people, discovering different cultures and of course, achieving two masters degrees in two years.

My experience was amazing. The ESADE Summer School is incredible, a real life changer. The journey during the first year is spectacular, and the connections inside my programmes helping me to find the internship for my Thesis. I would choose it ten times again!

I was always interested in entrepreneurship and KIC InnoEnergy not only gave me a great education in this but also provided me with a vast network of people, which is always really helpful for a start-up

Hi my name is Milan,
I’m a second year student on the Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels programme. My two years are coming to an end with the graduation in December and I would like to tell you the value that this programme has brought me during my studies.

My interest was to study fuels and the technology for their utilisation. When I checked the syllabus of this programme before applying, I knew I was at the right place for my next education degree. Moreover, this programme contained a lot of additional activities for the enrolled students, some which provided a totally new experience for me.

Some examples to name a few: I attended a Boiler conference in Poland, a field trip around Austria and I’ve attended conferences and symposia in which we as students got to contribute significantly. And in addition, I’ve co-written two scientific articles, got a summer internship in a company, received entrepreneurship training in Portugal and attend the European Utility Week.

During the study in Poland, the classes were conducted for a small compact group of students, which resulted in great efficiency and we developed great teamwork skills. The implemented approach of “Learning by doing” is a great practical way of teaching students the required theory and at the same time preparing them for work on real life projects.

Getting close to graduation, I am thankful for all the activities provided by this programme, support from administration, soft skills training, and all the required connections to transit from education to a graduate work position. I strongly recommend it as a unique innovative programme for the fuels sector.
