Master in Sustainable Energies

MSc: 2 years  ( 120 ECTS units )

The energy sector is growing and rapidly evolving, generating new business opportunities globally. In coming years, projects related to green energies, smart grids, energy security and efficiency will operate a revolution. At an industrial, urban and domestic level, the future of energy focuses on sustainability.

With the MSc in Sustainable Energies, ISEP trains engineers with specialized knowledge to plan and implementing sustainable strategies of energy production, distribution and management. The course mixes mechanical, electrical, chemical, geotechnical and civil engineering perspectives to ensure a comprehensive and integrated vision of energy.

The programme is designed to meet international markets´ needs. It´s flexible framework focuses advanced knowledge surrounding technologies, renewable energy investments (solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydro, tidal), cogeneration and microgeneration, safe and efficient distribution networks, clean transport systems, rational consumption, heat recovery and energy certification.

Recently, students developed studies on wind and solar energy systems; energy efficiency in buildings and public lighting; use of biodiesel in transports; power quality; among other projects conducted in cooperate and research environments.


Evening Schedule: Monday to Friday, 18:10-23:30, and Saturday, 09:10-13:00. 

(Daytime Schedule: Monday to Friday, 14:10-23:30. If a suficient number of students opt for the daytime schedule.)


In recent years, students developed their final project in companies like  EDP ,  BioRumo ,  Ecoinside ,  IncBio ,  Evoleotech ,  Megajoule ,  ISQ  and research groups such as  GECAD ,  CIDEM  and  CIETI , among others.
