With an ever-growing global population and energy demands of industries and consumers rising higher than ever before, we are rapidly depleting earth’s non-renewable energy resources. The problem of climate change has raised the demand for engineers to develop and implement sustainable energy technologies. Do you feel called upon to make a valuable contribution to the sustainable energy transition? If so, the Master’s in Sustainable Energy Technology at the University of Twente (UT) is the right choice for you.

In this two-year, English-taught Master’s, you gain in-depth expertise within the field of energy technology, supplementing it with the broader knowledge and skills needed to achieve real change in our societies’ energy systems.

The demand for experts in this field is particularly high and urgent as the use of fossil fuels affects climate change tremendously and these resources will, moreover, slowly run out. Graduates find exciting jobs shortly after graduating. Whether you want to focus on the research and development of a new technology, focus on the implementation of a sustainable energy system or start a career in consultancy, this Master’s offers excellent job prospects.
