Course content

MSc Energy for Smart Cities addresses internationally-oriented and entrepreneurial engineering students who wish to implement modern energy technologies for end-users of the electrical value chain: citizens, companies and cities. Graduates of this custom-developed programme will be truly multi-disciplinary smart city experts: well qualified to work in industry or research, or to take on policy-making roles in energy issues related to secure, sustainable urban living and working.

MSc Energy for Smart Cities balances exciting technological opportunities in energy with environmental and socio-economic aspects of smart cities, such as energy efficiency in buildings, electric transportation, energy economics, smart lighting and other city services. As one of our students, you receive a broad education in electrical and mechanical energy systems, allowing you to participate fully in the design and operation of advanced energy solutions. You will also learn how to construct and employ contemporary energy conversion technologies and secure energy supply in general, while taking into account overriding technical limitations, environmental consequences and economic considerations.
