Program Description

The MSc programme is a taught multi disciplinary international programme suitable for applicants from engineering, architecture, planning and other relevant backgrounds, intended to incorporate the latest developments not only in the international scientific field, but also in the European and national regulatory and legal framework.

The students will be introduced to power generation and management technologies, to oil and gas exploration and exploitation technologies, to energy demand management, to environmental impact assessment and to emissions trading.

They will obtain the expertise to become active professionals in the broader energy sector, including stakeholders in the electricity and gas market, they will be able to work for and to co-operate with public and local authorities and the energy regulator and the transmission system operator and also to provide consulting services in all these fields.

Also, students will be introduced to the principles and tools of energy and environmental design of buildings, and, by learning to use powerful computer modelling and simulation techniques, they will obtain the expertise to participate in the design process of buildings.

Students will also be acquainted with laboratory and in-situ methods for measuring, monitoring and evaluating the energy efficiency of building systems, of buildings, of renewable and conventional energy systems and of indoor environmental quality conditions, in accordance to legal and best-practice requirements, so as to be able to carry out energy renovation, retrofitting and refurbishment projects.

Furthermore, they will learn to evaluate, by means of applying standards and models, the environmental performance of buildings, as needed in order to implement the environmental labelling schemes.
