Program Description

Energy Technologies and Management Graduate Program is a thematic program designed for graduate students who want to do research, make a career plan and specialize in energy sector. The program started by the enrollment of first students in 2018-2019. With its academic staff carrying out globally renowned research studies in energy, it provides an infrastructure, education program and research opportunities to meet the educational needs in the field. It also offers a wide range of extensive and flexible curriculum that would make students competent in different areas of the energy sector, thereby enabling students to adopt a multidisciplinary mind. The course language is English.

Program objectives

Energy Technologies and Management Master’s Program with Thesis is a research oriented 2-year graduate program, designed for students motivated to equip themselves with technical, scientific and economic skills to understand and solve energy challenges both at national and global level. This full-time program allows students to work on interdisciplinary research projects in areas such as renewable energy systems, sustainable transportation, electric and hybrid vehicles, batteries, fuel cells, energy systems modeling, and energy economics. Its flexible curriculum aims to provide students a diverse range of options that suits best to their needs and interests. The target audience is students with backgrounds in engineering and natural sciences, however the program is also open to students coming from economics and management backgrounds who are willing to work at multidisciplinary projects with technical aspects.
