Course content

Aimed at true sustainable energy enthusiasts, MSc SELECT maps out the route from basic renewable energy sources to future energy systems, fostering thinking on global responsibility on the way. Sustainable energy services are a key issue for humanity; before any service is delivered, its complete environmental footprint must be considered. MSc SELECT starts from the concept of basic renewable energy sources and considers the pathways towards a future sustainable energy system. The target is always minimal environmental impact, whatever the kind, throughout the whole energy conversion chain from primary energy source to delivered service.MSc SELECT collaborates with industrial partners such as ABB and Fortum. This collaboration usually results in guest lectures, company visits, degree projects and internship opportunities.

All our students and teachers are true enthusiasts with a passion for innovation and sustainable energy. This is evident in the many awards that our students have received, such as the EDP University Challenge 2013, Emprèn Contest 2013 and EIT Change Award 2015.
