In modern day life, unlimited access to a power supply at any time and in almost any place is expected. However, the future of this supply lies in renewable energies such as wind power, geothermal energy or solar energy.
As a student of Energy Systems Engineering, you will be trained as an Engineer with the skills to convert power supplies from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy, involved in a range of areas such as power generation, conversion, transport, usage and storage. You will learn through practical and theoretical instruction to explore the technical and economic aspects of current energy systems, to gain in-depth cross-sectional expertise in the supply, integration and storage of future energy systems. Your future could be at the forefront of this exciting transitional period, you could shape the development of emerging power supply concepts, be involved in the decentralization of energy systems, or work on the continued development of smart power grids.
As an Engineer with an excellent global qualification, you could create a sustainable and more environmentally friendly power industry for the future.
