The programme offers a new and unique approach to energy issues and does not teach how to produce more energy but how to use energy more efficiently! The curriculum provides education in alternative energy materials science and engineering with a strong technology component with specialisations on either materials or processes in sustainable energetics. The goal of this programme is to educate specialists who are able to design, develop and improve materials for use in sustainable energy systems.
The programme offers a joint degree from two of the biggest and most respected universities in Estonia: TalTech and the University of Tartu.
- Integrating lectures, laboratory, theoretical classes and experience in industries
- Professors of the programme are highly recognised scientists. In 2013 Professor Enn Mellikov received the Estonian National Science Award in the field of solar energy
- Specialisation in Materials will concentrate on solar panels and fuel cells
- Specialisation in Processes will teach all about the different ways to produce energy: oil shale, wind energy, water, etc.
The 2 year (120 ECTS) curriculum comprises the following modules:
Social Studies (9 ECTS)
Basics of Natural Science and Engineering (30 ECTS)
Sustainable Energetics (15 ECTS)
Materials of Sustainable Energetics (18 ECTS)
Processes of Sustainable Energetics (18 ECTS)
Research Project and Practical Training (12 ECTS)
Free choice courses (6 ECTS)
Graduation Thesis (30 ECTS)
Since the beginning of the programme, almost 50% of the graduates have continued their studies at PhD level in TalTech University or in other universities in Europe or America. This has the result of many career possibilities as a researcher in the field of fuel cells and solar panels for material specialisation students whereas processes students are demanded in industries related to sustainable energetics.
