Did you know that...

  • the M.Sc. course works in partnership with industries and research institutes in Liguria, in Italy and abroad
  • all modules are taught in English and free English courses are offered to En2 students
  • you can obtain a Double Degree EMESB, European Master in Engineering for Energy and Sustainable Building
  • graduates can critically evaluate the data through the use of models and experiments
  • graduates will have the ability to employ new technologies with particular reference to energy production sustainability
  • about 50% of En2 students come from abroad

Contents

The course consists of modules that include thermofluid dynamics and thermo-chemical dynamics, as well as fluid machinery and energy conversion systems (cogeneration, fuel cells, power plants from renewable energy sources and smart grids), traditional energy and civil engineering plants, electric networks, economics, available and emerging technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental monitoring.

The course is aimed at students seeking high qualification in the following main fields:

  • energy conversion processes from chemical, biochemical, thermal sources into mechanical and electrical counterparts
  • sustainable & distributed energy: renewable energy (solar, geothermal, wind, hydro), fuel cells, biofuels, smart power grids, low emission power plants
  • sustainable development: C02 sequestration, LCA analysis, biomass exploitation, energy audit in buildings, energy from waste, recycling, modelling and experimental techniques devoted to optimum energy management.
