Energy and Environmental Sciences

Programma

  • 1e jaar

    This is a 2 year research master degree programme. The first year includes about 30 ECTS obligatory courses, addressing the relevant theories and methodologies in our research field and 30 ECTS electives. These electives can also be courses from other faculties, like economics, psychology or spatial sciences.

  • 2e jaar

    The second year focusses on doing research and consists out of 2 options, two research projects of 30 ECTS each or a larger research project (40 ECTS) and an internship (outside the university, even abroad). The research projects are carried out within the ESRIG research institute. This implies that a lot of options and subjects are available. Your tutor will help you to design a tailor made study programme that fits your interests and matches your future career wishes.

Programma-opties

  • Individually tailored programme (track)

    Each student is different and therefore student have the options to adapt the programme to their individual wishes and strengths

    So it is possible to tailor your programme towards focusing on experimental research by choosing specialized courses and opting for experimental research projects. Or you can go for a more integrated systems approach by selecting courses from different disciplines and do integrated systems and modeling research projects. Combining your individual interests with the wide range of topics and methodologies of our research groups allows you to choose the study programme that best matches your future career.

  • Research orientation and consultancy & business orientation (track)

    Students can choose between: 1) a more research focused orientation (two research projects)

    2) A more consultancy & business focused orientation (one research project and an internship) in the 2nd year of the programme.

    Both options offer the possibility to do a project outside the university. For the internship this is obvious, but many second research projects are also carried out externally (consultancy, government, industry). In this way you are optimally prepared for your first job after graduation.

  • Science, Business & Policy (profiel)

    Interested in the business side of science? You can combine this Master's programme with the Science Business & Policy profile. The SBP profile includes a six-month internship as a scientific advisor.

    First jobs EES Students

    To great satisfaction of the EES staff nearly all graduates find a job soon after (or even before) graduation within the environment/energy sector.

    Graduates find employment in a wide variety of organisations and positions. Universities, energy companies, environmental consultancies, environmental NGO's, industry and government are typical first employers as can be seen from the Figure.

    This Figure is based on information on the first jobs of the graduates of the last three completed academic years.
