What is the ‘EIT-KIC Master of Energy’ all about?

Structure 

The Master's programme consists of 120 credits, organized in two stages of 60 credits. The first stage consists of compulsory courses that cover a broad base of electrical, thermo-mechanical, and techno-economic subjects. In the second year, students continue working towards writing a Master's thesis and attend elective courses: general, broadening and option-specific.

The first year of this programme combines electrical and mechanical engineering courses with energy-related socio-economic subjects. An integrated project is also included. After the first year exams, the programme organizes a one-week summer school to sharpen participants' innovation and entrepreneurial skills in the energy sector. This summer school includes soft skills such as teambuilding, networking, leadership, entrepreneurship and intercultural communication, all fueled by interesting conversations with professionals from the energy industry, consultancy firms and municipalities.

In the second year a Smart Cities Week course is organized during the annual ATHENS week each November. These students discover a myriad of leading innovations and technologies in the smart cities sector outside of the traditional curriculum.

The Master's thesis is a second-year research project on electrical or thermo-mechanical energy, or on one of energy's technical-economic aspects. A wide range of topics is available every year at KU Leuven and the other second year universities. Here students learn to integrate and apply the knowledge and skills acquired in their previous year. Topics are linked with on-going KIC InnoEnergy research and innovation activities. Project findings will be investigated with a view to optimizing their value and application in both current and future energy contexts.

During the programme, all students have the opportunity to visit at least one international smart cities event, two energy companies and one energy research institute. In addition, all students get to meet at least one venture in the KIC InnoEnergy Highway active in the Smart and Efficient Buildings and Cities technology field. In this way, the programme aims at maintaining a multidisciplinary approach to energy technology, while allowing students ample freedom in shaping their personal profile (e.g. with emphasis on in-depth knowledge or a broader profile).

After successfully completing the programme, alumni receive a double degree, one from each university they attended during the two years, as well as a KIC-EIT certificate that recognizes the extra activities accomplished.

A strong mobility concept by KIC InnoEnergy and the EIT means that students spend their first year at one university, their second year at another, and have the possibility to complete an internship at a third.

Strengths

  1. Top merits (according to participants in Survey 2013-2014): mobility and international exposure, Innovation and close relation with industry in joint activities and project-based course, Master's thesis with industry/research centre, Innovative education and Entrepreneurship skills, Nice topic, attendance to top international events related to the topic, Double-degree Scholarschip, Active organisation, Effective communication.
  2. Energy engineers are much wanted by industry and society. Most students have an industry contract before they officially get their degree.
  3. Unique programme in Belgium and a pioneering role in Europe.
  4. Graduates of the programme have gained an active knowledge of the basic aspects and methods of energy conversion and rational use of energy in the three domains: 'electrical energy', 'thermo-mechanical energy', and 'techno-economic energy knowledge'. According to the relevant stakeholders these different subjects are well balanced.
  5. The strong multidisciplinary programme is valued highly by students, alumni, and industry.
  6. Clear, well-structured and balanced programme with a good mix between core programme and elective programme, allowing students to adjust programme according to own interests.
  7. Strong core team of professors with large research expertise (all top researchers in their field), and with professional educational training.
  8. Diverse group of part-time guest professors from industry with specific knowledge on energy topics.
  9. Teaching of exercises, labs and coaching of Master's thesis by research-oriented staff (PhD students).
  10. Versatile preparatory programme that can be well fitted to background of inflow.
  11. Every year, a one-week Germany trip is organized (optional), during which students visit German energy companies (ABB, 50Hz, Siemens, RWE, etc). Most students participate.
  12. Good gender diversity in teaching staff.
  13. Gound counseling service provided by PhD researchers that have followed the Master's programme themselves.
  14. Continuous process of quality control, guaranteed by a structural approach. Next to the classic processes common for KU Leuven and the Faculty of Engineering Science, the core teaching staff meets twice a year in a one-day meeting to discuss on the programme. The extended teaching staff, including guest lecturers from industry, meets on a yearly to two-yearly basis, discussing longer term vision and strategy. Finally, the Industrial Advisory Board meets on a two-yearly basis.

Career perspectives

As a graduate, you will possess a genuinely multidisciplinary skill set and be qualified to work in a research, policy-based or industrial environment.

In the last decade, urban informatics has gained recognition as a new approach to the study of cities and urban life. Read more
In the last decade, urban informatics has gained recognition as a new approach to the study of cities and urban life. This is partly due to the harnessing of big and open data relating to urban infrastructure, socio-economic profiles and activities that take place in cities; and in part a result of developments in urban science, computational social science and complexity theory.

This course will enable you to understand and promote the theory and science of smart cities and to analyse city-scale data. You’ll also gain the skills to transform this data into knowledge, capitalising on emerging developments in big data and interdisciplinary methods to tackle the world’s urban challenges. Unlike most existing courses that have a disciplinary focus, this course offers a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to urban studies that combines training in theoretical approaches with knowledge of practice-based methodological skills. This means you’ll develop the skills to understand, support, and manage urban systems, and harness the opportunities that sensor, mobile and internet technologies offer within smart cities.

This course, a collaboration between the Centre for Interdisciplinary methodologies (CIM) and the Warwick Institute for the Science of Cities (WISC), also provides a pathway to the PhD programme in Urban Science at WISC, if you intend to undertake further postgraduate research at doctoral level. WISC has ties with CUSP (Center for the Urban Science and Progress) at New York University and the recently established CUSP London.

The. Master's specialisation in Cities, Water and Climate Change. discusses the relationship between city planning and development, climate mitigation and adaptation. Read more

The Master's specialisation in Cities, Water and Climate Change discusses the relationship between city planning and development, climate mitigation and adaptation. Cities, because of high levels of energy consumption and mobility, are the main contributors to climate change. At the same time, cities, because of their population density, are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Questions that will be addressed in this specialisation are: How can city planners contribute to a reduction of CO2 emissions, and how can cities adapt to the consequences of climate change?

A broad perspective

This Master's specialisation prepares students for working on the nexus between urban planning, water and environmental management. Students develop a broad and detailed view on the societal context of spatial and environmental issues is developed into an institutional approach. 

Possibilities for mainstreaming climate change into urban planning are discussed as well as examples of carbon free cities and transition towns. It is expected that in 2050 more than 70% of the world’s population lives in delta areas. Because of the rapidly urbanizing delta areas, special attention will be paid to issues of flood risk management and multi-layered water safety. Which infrastructure is needed to protect delta areas, what is the potential of ecosystem engineering (‘building with nature’), and what are possibilities for flood proofing urban areas?

Learn from case studies

To learn more about these strategies, students will study case studies from the Netherlands (Delta programme, Rotterdam, and Nijmegen) as well as international cases (New Orleans, Miami, New York, Jakarta, Hamburg). Students will learn more about both strategies to enhance cities’ adaptive capacity (the capacity to adapt to changing climate conditions), and cities’ resilience (the capacity to respond to shocks, such as floods).

Why study Spatial Planning at Radboud University?

  • We’re a small, almost ‘family-like’ department that covers a broad range of topics with a strong track record in related research. This means that you’ll have the advantage of enjoying plenty of one-on-one contact with expert supervisors while pursuing a topic that is of personal interest to you.
  • While English is the main language of communication and all lectures are in English, you have the choice to complete assignments, exams and your thesis in either Dutch or English.
  • You're trained to think outside given boxes, by combining well-established core courses with electives providing state of the art specialist knowledge.
  • Together with lecturers and practitioners, you'll develop smart and sustainable solutions for actual and future planning problems.
  • Best Master’s programme according to the Elsevier magazine’s survey Beste studies 2017.

Career prospects

Our Spatial Planning graduates are greatly valued by their employers for their analytical skills, critical perspective and sound academic understanding of the relationship between human activities, their spatial environment, and relevant spatial interventions enhancing their living environment.

Upon completion students will have knowledge of:

  • Interfaces between different planning concepts, sectors and interests
  • Synergies that are found and trade-offs that are made along these interfaces
  • Paths through which integrative planning is manifested in policy formulation, decision-making and projects at different geographical and institutional levels

Spatial planners from Nijmegen work as policy maker, consultant or project manager for government, consulting firms, project developers, housing corporations or research institutes. Also, more and more of our alumni are working in international projects.

-Knowledge transfer and employability: We combine training in theory and critical thinking with more practical and applied elements. Our range of `real world' practitioners gives you the opportunity to liaise with external organisations on live policy problems and enhance your employability.

Teaching and learning

Part-time students complete the full-time programme over 24 months. There are NO evening or weekend course units available on the part-time programme, therefore if you are considering taking a programme on a part-time basis, you should discuss the requirements with the Programme Director first and also seek approval from your employer to have the relevant time off. Timetabling information is normally available from late August from the Programme Administrator and you will have the opportunity to discuss course unit choices during induction week with the Programme Director.

Career opportunities

The course responds to a growing need for social, economic and political experts in the environmental field, and our graduates are highly employable in what is an expanding sector.

You will be equipped to work for organisations like the Environment Agency, the United Nations Environment Programme, the Soil Association, and the Department of Environment Food and Agriculture, among many others. Our students have been particularly successful in obtaining funded PhD places and gaining employment with private consultancies and international NGOs.

The Master in Development Practice (MDP) is a world leading and uniquely innovative programme that blends science and social science to further international development. Read more

The Master in Development Practice (MDP) is a world leading and uniquely innovative programme that blends science and social science to further international development. It is part of a global network with a Secretariat at the Earth Institute, Columbia University in New York (and was the only programme to receive seed funding in Europe in the first round). In the programme, students are exposed to leading edge scientific and social science techniques and researchers in order to develop international development solutions. The MDP is part of the only global educational network of its kind, involving 30 universities across all continents. In it, students receive leading edge transdisciplinary training in four “pillars”- health, natural, social, management sciences and mdpglobal.org.

The MDP is led by the Trinity College Dublin (TCD) School of Natural Science in collaboration with leading scientific researchers, and national and international organisations with specialist skills. The goal is to produce rounded development practitioners with a deep understanding of scientific methods and techniques to reduce global poverty, in addition to extensive on-the-ground training in developing country contexts, and in international organizations.

The MDP has innovative elements that distinguish it from any other M.Sc. in Ireland. This innovative course utilises a modular structure to develop student capabilities to understand theories, practices, and languages of different specialities. Students develop deep analytical and practical skills across four core pillars of the programme.

Specialist skills are formed across a range of areas including research design, methodology, and methods (with training in cutting edge scientific quantitative, qualitative, and digital tools and techniques, sustainable agriculture and hand use; Development economics; Health; Gender; Climate change and Climate justice; Science, technology and sustainable development; Impact measurement; Post-conflict situations; Governance and politics; Globalisation and African development; smart cities and sustainable urbanism. Students also produce a dissertation drawing upon research conducted during fieldwork modules. These have attracted attention from policy-makers, such as the Minister of Education in Rwanda.

It combines a range of teaching and learning approaches both in the seminar room and in the field. Students engage in a minimum of sixteen class-room based modules and three work-based placements to gain hands-on practical experience during the programme. In year one, students undertake two placements. Firstly, students complete a research project with an Irish Based International Development Non-Governmental Organisation. Secondly, they spend up to three months completing cross-disciplinary fieldwork in a developing location. To date, students have undertaken fieldwork in Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Brazil., Malawi, India, USA, Vietnam and Madagascar.

In year two students undertake internships in leading international organisations. To date, students have taken placements with UN Women, WHO, FAO, OECD, World Bank, UNESCAP, and a multitude of other international organisations.

Students have the opportunity to collaborate in a global community through their participation in the Global Classroom, a web-based capability, managed by the Earth Institute, to bring students and teachers from across world together to engage in collective classes and educational innovation.

Students engage with leading experts, practitioners, and academics both in the classroom and in the field. The MDP is delivered by TCD in collaboration with a number of key partners, including The Mary Robinson Climate Justice Foundation, and a wide number of national and international organisations with specialist skills in development practice.
