Περιγραφή Προγράμματος

Energy and its sustainability is a key global issue for modern society. Major emphasis is placed on the optimisation of modern energy systems, whereas sustainability is required to solve the wide ranging energy problems that we face today. The sustainable management of modern energy supplies is a very important topic, along with the need to increase the integration of renewable energy sources in current energy grids. In addition, the issue of confronting the environmental impact of current fossil-fuel power plants and their transition to cleaner energy is also a top priority and a challenge for modern engineering. The energy industry is so wide and varied and so critical to our everyday lives that it offers an interesting career choice to anyone whether your interest is in the arts or the sciences, a job in the energy industry can cater to everyone.

The postgraduate programme is designed to equip graduates with a broad training in, and understanding of, the following fields:

  • Energy Management
  • Renewable Energy
  • Fossil Fuels and Environmental Protection

Programme Structure:

The Programme consists of four core courses and two required specialised courses as well as three elective courses within the 3 specialisations or *streams and a master’s dissertation. The **elective courses are available from a selection of subjects. They provide you the opportunity to acquire in depth knowledge within the specific subject area. The core courses help you to develop strong interdisciplinary technological, managerial and legal knowledge.

The Timetable:

The course is a 12 month full-time programme of study.

1. Core Courses: These Courses are required for all three streams of specialisation

  • Intro to Energy Technology Systems
  • Intro to Energy Economics and Quantitative Methods
  • Energy Project Valuation and Financing
  • Energy Law in Europe

2. The Required & Elective Courses

The Required courses must be followed from each stream as below. The Electives modules represent a rich variety of subject areas. Some are shared between the four different streams of the postgraduate programme. Students may choose two elective courses from those displayed below under each stream.

*Streams will be realised depending upon student demand
** Some of the elective courses may not be offered in a particular year, depending entirely on student demand. The same course may be offered in a two-year part-time study mode.
