Exposition "Small Holland"Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen introduces a new English-taught study programme: the European Master’s in Sustainable Energy System Management (SESyM). Students will be able study at institutions in the Netherlands, Italy, and Spain. The course will be offered as of September 2016 and will take 16 months to complete.

Why Sustainable Energy System Management?

The European energy industry is transitioning from old power sources like oil and gas to the new, more sustainable sources of sun, wind, biomass, and geothermal energy. To develop innovative solutions to help this transition, an interdisciplinary approach is required. Companies need to consider technological and environmental issues, as well as social, economic, and legal challenges. They need specialists capable of analysing complex problems from different points of view, designing new business models, and implementing them in a rapidly changing energy market.

The SESyM programme at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen will prepare business specialists to work in the growing renewable energy sector. Students will learn from the latest European practices and train to build their own business plans. Upon graduation, they will be able to attain managerial positions at international companies.

The programme is offered in cooperation with two other members of the European Renewable Energy Centres (EUREC), the University of Pisa in Italy and the University of Zaragoza in Spain. Lasting 16 months, the study leads to a Master of Sciences degree. Graduates will also receive a Certificate of Equivalence from EUREC.

Admission requirements: Bachelor’s degree or professional background in economics, social sciences, management, or systematic studies.

English language requirements: IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.

Full tuition fees: € 1,984 for EU students starting at Hanze UAS, the Netherlands; € 7,300 for EU students starting at the University of Pisa, Italy; € 11,500 for non-EU students.

Application deadlines: July 1st for EU students, June 1st for non-EU students.

Hanze UAS also offers a European Master in Renewable Energy programme that is designed for more technically-oriented students and is complementary to the SESyM programme.
