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.
Don’t just take out word for it – find out what current students, recent graduates – and their employers – think of the Master’s in Energy Transition (previously known as Master's in Clean Fossils and Alternative Fuels), why they chose the programme, and what they plan to do next.
Today, I am already a game changer. Tomorrow, I will be a Change Agent.
I am a second-year student at IST Lisbon with majors in Energy Engineering & Management. Throughout my entire engineering career, I have always been striving to maximise the efficiency of the existing technology, minimize the bottlenecks to enhance the energy potential. During last two years, I’ve had excursions to different power industries, certifications and worked together with companies. This has helped me to understand the dynamics of the challenges faced in power sector.
Right now I’m on verge of joining one of the most successful multinational companies for my thesis and this opportunity will enable me to apply the teachings of my past two years in practice.
"My purpose is to contribute to more energy security for my country, as well as better air quality for the city I live in."
Today, I am working in an R&D department of several power production plants – focused mainly on combustion problems. Our customers are large power plants that use mostly coal, but also biomass and natural gas. We develop and implement innovative ideas for them, as well as deliver energy services.
The knowledge as to how businesses are created and run, puts InnoEnergy Master´s School students one step ahead of those classically educated, making them more attractive in the job market.
The Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal is a partner of the MSc Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels Energy programme. Their director of R&D, Jarosław Zuwała, is an active AGH University of Science and Technology academic teacher who works as a mentor, MSc thesis supervisor and reviewer. He shares how InnoEnergy students are easily one step ahead of the competition.
