Exclusively available on the MSc RENE programme, E&BC combines the case method of teaching (developed by Harvard and ESADE, and now a key feature of leading MBA courses) and project-based learning pioneered by Aalborg University and widely used in engineering schools. Local start-ups are actively involved in setting challenges. Recently students have worked on finding new markets for hydraulic energy recovery technology (with Tecnoturbines); assessing new opportunities in the offshore aquaculture sector (with Smalle); and working on the application of Peltier cells to the reverse side of solar PV panels (with AEInnova).
The partners in the InnoEnergy Master’s School ecosystem are driving the energy transition in many different ways. The real-life challenges they set are a core part of our programmes. This challenge-driven approach to education gives you practical experience of how they are driving change, the issues they have to consider, the problems they have to solve, and the ways they measure success.
