Energy Science is a two-year Master’s programme taught in English that includes both taught courses and research awarding a total of 120 points in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
The programme consists of mandatory and optional courses and about one full year of practical work, which can include elements like a consultancy project, an internship, natural sciences research, and of course a Master's thesis research project.
