The MSc in Energy Systems Programme is being offered by the School of Science & Technology of the University Center of International Programmes of Studies of the International Hellenic University. The programme aims to provide postgraduate level education to interested students and is targeted towards graduates including professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge in a range of Energy Issues from a technical point of view with an emphasis on technology and the use of Energy as well as the design, construction and maintenance of Energy Production Systems.
Energy and its sustainability will always be a key global issue for modern contemporary societies. In order to really stand out, young professionals in the Energy sector need education that is interdisciplinary: technical as well as economics/management/law related.
The International Hellenic University offers just such a diverse MSc in Energy Systems programme that is open to candidates from different academic disciplines and which has been in high demand since its first intake of students in 2010. Leading academics from prestigious academic institutions from Greece and abroad, together with instructors from public authorities and key players from energy-related organizations, have taught in this programme in the past years.
The programme has been developed to equip graduates of Engineering, Geotechnical and Natural Sciences departments with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental issues of energy in the industrial and commercial sectors. It provides up to date technical knowledge and skills required for achieving energy management, designing of energy-efficient systems and processes, utilisation of renewable energy sources and the cost effective reduction and control of pollution.
This programme is designed for University graduates of Engineering, Geotechnical and Natural Sciences departments who wish to gain further expertise in the engineering aspects of the Energy sector.
Τhe School of Science and Technology during the last 3-years had an educational collaboration funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), with Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH – Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg) in order to provide common courses in their respective Masters of Science in the field of Energy.
In the frame of this collaboration, students of the MSc in Energy Systems were given the opportunity to follow an elective course in TUHH, which was specifically developed and offered in the academic years 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 to Master students of both universities. Similarly, master students of TUHH in the field of Energy were also able to follow a specifically developed elective course at IHU.
Furthermore, students of IHU were given the opportunity to visit TUHH for 3 months and conduct their MSc thesis in Germany. All travel costs, living expenses and accommodation for students in Greece and Germany were covered by the Greek-German collaboration project.
The courses of the programme are taught exclusively in English. The academic staff comes from Universities in Greece and abroad.
