Do you want to solve future energy challenges through new technologies and entrepreneurship? The Master's Programme in Energy Technologies (ENTECH) gives you knowledge of a wide range of energy technologies and skills in problem solving, innovation and leadership. Upon completion of your studies, you will have a broad personal network within the European energy sector and knowledge to lead innovation in industry or in your own startup company.

Why this programme?

The EIT InnoEnergy Master's Programme in Energy Technologies (ENTECH) offers more than 200 individual courses that cover a comprehensive range of energy technologies and related subjects. Divided into series of modules, the programme is perfect for students who want to design their own study path.

This is a joint programme, offering collaboration of four top technical European universities, a start-up accelerator and EIT InnoEnergy, Europe's largest network for sustainable energy.

During your studies you will gain in-depth knowledge of new energy technologies, particularly sustainable energy technologies and their economic, social, legal and ecological aspects combined with knowledge and skills in innovation and entrepreneurship. Compared to traditional engineering degrees, the Master's Programme in Energy Technologies offers a special focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as product development and how innovation can be realised in commercial contexts.

In the two-year programme, you study at two of the partner universities. The first year you can study at Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal or Uppsala University in Sweden. In the second year, all students are required to change the study location to either: Grenoble INP in France, Uppsala University in Sweden, KIT: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany or Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal. Please note that you cannot study in the same location for two years as the programme's mobility aspect means that students receive a double degree, one from each university they have chosen to study at.

The final semester is dedicated to your degree project, which most students choose to do in different parts of Europe.

Student profile
You must have completed a Bachelor's degree worth a minimum of 180 ECTS credits OR an equivalent academic qualification from an internationally recognised university with background in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, mechatronics engineering, process engineering, electrical engineering, energy engineering, electronic engineering. You have excellent English skills, either from a Bachelor's programme taught fully in English or as proven by an English test.

You are highly motivated and willing to take responsibility for creating your own study profile among a wide range of subjects and courses. After your studies you are planning to work with innovation and entrepreneurship in industry or in your own start-up company.


The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Energy Technology as the main field of study and, in addition, an equivalent degree from one of the partner universities.


The first year you can study at Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal or Uppsala University in Sweden where you focus on the below subjects:
At IST: Instituto Superior Técnico, you will follow foundation courses (harmonisation) to later on specialise in a number of fields like:

  • Fuels
  • Renewable energy
  • Energy conversion
  • Energy efficiency
At Uppsala University, you will follow a set of foundation courses in mechanics, industrial project management and power electronics, amongst others. In addition, you can specialise in subjects like:
  • Renewable energy technologies and systems
  • Energy economics and informatics
  • Decentralised power supply and grid integration
Compulsory basic courses are offered at both universities, in order for all students to have a common knowledge base in electrical, chemical and mechanical engineering. Then you choose one of a large number of specialisations in energy technology. At both universities, you also take courses in, e.g., product development, modelling and simulation, applied mathematics, economics and law.

In your second year, you can choose between the following universities (you are required to change universities between Year 1 and Year 2):
  • KIT: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany
  • Grenoble INP: Institute of Technology in France
  • UU: Uppsala University in Sweden
  • IST: Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal
During your studies at the new home university, you continue with your selected area of specialisation:

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
  • Engineering thermodynamics
  • Fundamentals of energy technology
  • Power plant technology
  • Thermal turbo-machines
  • Energy technology for buildings
  • Modelling and simulation in energy and fluid engineering
Grenoble INP
  • Energy in buildings
  • Renewable energy
Uppsala University
  • Decentralised grid
  • Energy in buildings
  • Energy economics
  • Renewable energy
IST: Instituto Superior Técnico
  • Fuels
  • Renewable energy
  • Energy conversion
  • Energy efficiency
An important part of the studies is Innovation & Entrepreneurship Journey, a unique set of activities outside of classroom that you follow during your Master's with EIT InnoEnergy Master School. During Innovation & Entrepreneurship Journey students:
  • Benefit from exclusive partnership with Siemens Energy, in which the company provides a yearly case for you to tackle through energy technology solutions.
  • Receive hands-on training and experience in energy production while joining a technical dive during Azores Field Trip.
  • Participate in one of the main events in European energy calendar, the European Utility WeekLearn how to develop an innovation idea into a minimum viable product with UnternehmerTUM, start-up accelerator of TU Munich and a leader in innovation and business creation.

Courses within the programme

The programme offers a large number of courses. Details about which courses and specialisations are offered within the programme can be found on EIT InnoEnergy Master School website. The courses taught at Uppsala University can be found in the programme outline.

Learning experience

The programme is modularly structured, which means that you have excellent opportunities to customise your study profile with the help of the teachers at the different universities. There is a wide and varied range of courses. The teaching and examination forms vary between different courses.

The programme is fully taught in English.


When you join Europe's largest accelerator, you gain privileged access to exciting jobs, internships, mentoring and thesis opportunities. EIT InnoEnergy Career Centre supports Master School students in identifying the right opportunity based on their individual needs and interests.
