Energy and Climate Change are both interconnected disciplines and science and technology combines the most practical approach for solving new energy and climate change challenges. The common semester of this Master`s program offers a multidisciplinary approach and builds a solid base for students. This Master´s program offers two Mentions: a Mention in Energy Engineering and a Mention in Climate Change. The devastating effects of Climate Change, including flood events, the rise of sea level, the loss of ecosystems as well as the monitoring and prediction of Earth´s Climate are some concepts studied in the Mention in Climate Change. The leading edge technology of energy, the engineering of power plants and carbon capture storage science and technology are some of the lines studied in the Mention in Energy Engineering. This Master’s program offers field trips worldwide to key geographical locations in other continents for the practical study of climate change as well as industrial visits to energy engineering plants giving to students a broad view and perspective on energy and climate change-related issues.
