MSc Energy Transition

Enable the circular economy. Build a sustainable future.

We are seeing a major transition in the world’s energy systems. Consumption of fossil fuels is decreasing while renewables are gaining ever more momentum. At the same time, the shift to decentralisation means that multiple sources need to be interconnected. This change is having significant impact for individuals and organisations in every sector across the globe.

Our new programme, MSc in Energy Transition, prepares you to lead the implementation of contemporary energy systems. From conventional generation and bio-fuels through smart grids and renewables’ integration, you will develop a high-level perspective of advanced energy systems and technologies. Your engineering and business management competencies will be accelerated simultaneously through case-based learning and soft skills development in our Challenge Driven Journey.

Join a diverse and international cohort of talented students and explore the critical issues at two different, world-class universities and one of Europe’s foremost business schools. Graduate with a double degree made up of two of the following:

You will also earn the PRINCE2 Management Method Certificate (foundation and practitioner), Certification in Entrepreneurship from the prestigious Católica Business School and the InnoEnergy Business & Entrepreneurship Excellence Certificate.

Shell, ExxonMobil, EthosEnergy, Philip Morris, McKinsey & Company and other leading companies actively recruit our graduates.

Exclusive access to industry

Attending class is not the same as real-world exposure to industry. The MSc Energy Transition is structured around a series of field visits, offering a unique opportunity to explore behind-the scenes and meet the experts at innovative and forward-thinking companies who are driving the development of clean fuel alternatives. You get a chance to see concepts in action, build your understanding in the business context and take the first steps towards creating your own network.

Active learning, innovative teaching

The programme is built around experiential learning. We take a hands-on approach, exploring the issues through real-life case studies – the Harvard case method – to build your problem-solving and critical-thinking capabilities. Learning is active, concepts are embedded and you are in the driving seat.
