Program description

Sustainable production, treatment and use of energy and materials, including renewable energy and future energy technologies are at the core of this programme.

Energy, water, metals and plastics form the physical basis of our modern society. The use of these (raw) materials is increasing continuously and causing various ecological, economic and social problems. However, the sustainable production and use of resources is necessary for future generations.

This programme gives you detailed insight into the development of energy and material use over time, into current and future energy technologies (including renewable energy), such as solar cells, biomass and wind, and into bio-based materials and energy and climate policies. Typical questions addressed in the Master's programme Energy Science are: • When will solar energy become a competitive alternative to fossil fuels? • Is it better to recycle plastic or to burn it? • What is more important: renewable energy or energy conservation? • And what can be achieved with fuel cells? Graduates will be able to contribute to the transitions towards sustainable energy and material systems by doing applied research or consultancy work or by giving policy advice.
