Course introduction

Master’s Course in Energy Engineering (LM-30 Energy and Nuclear Engineering)  

Energy Engineering is a multi-university Master’s course, jointly managed by the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering of University of Trento (administrative premises)and the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Free University of Bolzano.
This course is the result of the increasing spreading of technologies connected with the spread generation and the optimized management of energy and the consequent increasing demand of engineers able to develop and propose efficient and innovative technological solutions to deal with the issues deriving from the progressive depletion of fossil non-renewable sources and the environmental impacts due to the use of energy. The course contents insists on the issues of energy efficiency in the buildings and in the productive cycles, the energy production from middle-small sized plants of renewable sources, which have a reduced environmental impact and they serve customers in the surrounding areas.


Educational Objectives and Job prospect
The course aims at training experts able to deal with the various aspects of planning, implementing and managing the integrated energy systems, such as production plants supplied from renewable sources, low energy consumption buildings and networks able to transport electric and thermic energy from the production site to the local consumption sites. Energy engineers will work as independent professionals or in public and private companies, industries of the energetic and thermo-energetic sectors and public and private utilities. Graduates can access the third training level of Doctoral Schools.


Languages used in teaching
The official teaching language is English. Optional courses will be offered in Italian and German.
