More information 


This Master’s programme, taught by two biggest universities in Estonia – Tallinn University of Technology and University of Tartu, was launched in September 2009 and is financed by the Estonian Ministry of Science and Education. 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 specializations on either materials in sustainable energetics 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.

Key features

• Courses will be taught both, in Tallinn University of Technology and University of Tartu in compact courses, integrating lectures, laboratory, theoretical classes and experience in industries already during the studies
• Specialization on Materials will concentrate on solar panels and fuel cells
• Specialization on Processes will teach all about the different ways to produce energy: oil shale, wind energy, water etc.
• Students have possibility to take part of exchange programmes in Europe and USA, e.g. in University of California, Berkeley

Career opportunities

Since the beginning of the programme, almost 50% of the graduates have continued their studies on PhD level. This has result many career possibilities as a researcher in the field of fuel cells and solar panels for material specialization students whereas processes students are demanded in industries related to sustainable energetics.
