Become a sustainable technology pioneer that develops and implements novel, sustainable energy technologies and transitions that are needed in tomorrow’s world.
Are you looking for a way to deepen your expertise in energy technology, while supplementing it with the broader knowledge and skills needed to achieve real change in our societies’ energy systems? Are you eager to use your understanding of technology and engineering to play a role as enabler, leader and game-changer in the transition towards sustainable energy systems? If you are, the University of Twente’s Master’s in Sustainable Energy Technology (SET) is a good choice for you.
The SET Master’s is a multidisciplinary programme that combines engineering and technology with social sciences and hands-on application. You will be trained in chemical, electrical, process and mechanical engineering, as well as in economics, business development, innovation, supply chain management and societal change. In addition to gaining in-depth knowledge of renewable energy resources and technologies – think bio-energy, solar energy, wind energy and hydrogen as well as fuel cells and smart grids – you will also gain expertise in the wider framework of today’s energy markets, entrepreneurship, business models and management. This will help you develop into the kind of person who can successfully implement technologies, leading the way towards a sustainable society.
Building on our university’s unique High Tech Human Touch philosophy, the SET Master's is for students who understand the kind of energy technologies that will be needed in tomorrow’s world as well as what it will take to get them rolled out and working in our communities, cities and societies. Many engineers and energy technologists choose to focus on developing and improving renewable technologies – and these technical specialists are needed in society. Professionals who understand these technologies, but are also equipped to step forward as facilitators and leaders of the renewable energy revolution are in equally high demand. The SET Master's caters to this second group of engineers. Our aim with the programme is to help you become an authority in the implementation of technology-driven change in energy markets anywhere in the world.
