MSc Renewable Energy (RenE)

Document legals

RENE is aligned with the objectives of the European SET plan and the objectives of KIC InnoEnergy in the field of the renewable energies. The content of the programme is focused to the renewable technologies where the partners of KIC InnoEnergy are excellent:

  • Wind energy
  • Concentrated solar thermal power
  • Photovoltaic solar energy
  • Ocean energy
  • Hydro power
  • Geothermal energy

The methodology of the programme is aligned with the concept of “learning by doing” of KIC InnoEnergy, so combining deep theory knowledge (top-down approach) with internship in industry co-advisored by the university and the industry (bottom-up approach). From the transversal point of view and the enhancement of competences, the objective is to train the students in skills such as communication, economics, business administration and, very specially, to promote the orientation to innovation and the entrepreneurship spirit by means again, of the “learning by doing” concept. The practical implementation of such concepts will be done developing applied technical valorisation and business plans.

MSc Smart Electrical Networks & Systems (SENSE)

Documents legals

MSc SENSE focuses on understanding, modelling and analyzing the principles behind electric power generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation. Topics range from the design, operation, control and monitoring of individual components to the power system in its entirety.

Existing technologies make up the bulk of the course content, but strong emphasis is also given to novel and innovative technologies that may stimulate the evolution of existing power grids into a ‘Smart Grid’. The innovation process itself, plus the route towards new business development in the electric power area, is addressed. Mandatory change of study country between the first and second year is needed.

 

The first year has a strong focus on fundamental courses like power system analysis, power electronics, electrical machines, high-voltage engineering, etc. The second study year, the following specialisations are available: Energy Management in Buildings and Power Grids (INP); Information Systems and Electricity Market (KIT); Intelligent Transmission Networks (KTH); Power Distribution (KUL); Power Electronics as Enabling Technology for Renewable Integration (UPC); Storage (Uppsala University); Sustainable Electrical Energy Systems (TU/e).
