Master Sustainable Energy Technology

Education Guide to the master's program of Sustainable Energy Technology

Welcome to the online Education Guide of the Sustainable Energy Technology Master Program.

This Education Guide is meant for students primarily. It contains information on the structure and the organizational aspects of the program. You can use it as a guide throughout your entire Master’s program. All aspects of the program will be explained in detail.

The information on these pages applies to the academic year of 2017-2018, unless stated otherwise. 

Capacity-driven Master Allocation Procedure (MAP)

July 2017 - In order to ensure that MSc students will get a qualitative supervision, the Board of the Department of Mechanical Engineering aims to match the number of MSc students within each research group with the available supervision capacity of that group. In order to safeguard quality of supervision, the maximum number of students that can enroll a particular research group within the department of Mechanical Engineering will have to match the available capacity of that group. For the upcoming academic year 2017-2018 a new procedure is implemented within the Department of Mechanical Engineering to allocate students to research groups. The Board of the department thereby provides students a suitable position within the university to complete their MSc project.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is responsible for the MSc program Mechanical Engineering and the interdepartmental MSc programs Automotive Technology, Systems and Control, and Sustainable Energy Technology. The same regulations for the procedure apply to all programs. The timeline and implementation of the procedure for the MSc program Mechanical Engineering are different from those for the interdepartmental programs.

This new allocation procedure within the Department of Mechanical Engineering directly affects students who would like to perform their thesis work in one of the research groups in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. This procedure can also affect students choosing a research group in one of the partner departments.

More information on the details of the new procedure for the MSc program Sustainable Energy Technology regarding regulations and timeline can be found here.

To-do list

Please pay close attention to the to-do list; it will guide you step by step through the practical arrangements you need to make in order to complete your program successfully.

Six departments

The Master’s program Sustainable Energy Technology is an interdepartmental effort of six departments of the TU/e:

  • Mechanical Engineering,
  • Chemical Engineering and Chemistry,
  • Electrical Engineering,
  • Applied Physics,
  • Built Environment
  • Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences

3TU program

The SET program is a 3TU program. The program and courses are set up in close cooperation with colleagues from the Delft University of Technology (TUD) and University of Twente (UT). The three core programs are largely identical. The cooperation gives you the opportunity to profit from the specific strengths of all the three universities in various fields of sustainable energy technology. See the site of 3TU for more information about the 3TU programs.
