Mechanical Engineering with Energy (Honors)

Doctorado (ISCED 2011 nivel 8)


Duración 8 semesters
Costo National/EU student:4.450€/year International student:12.500€/year

This programme covers all the technologies needed to produce energy and in particular electrical energy from renewable sources, to monitor and control energy systems and to connect them to the electricity grid. It is a mixture of theory and practical hands-on learning in all aspects of Renewable Energy Technology, electrical technology and automated monitoring and control systems. The skills learned on the programme can be used in a wide range of industries and good graduates are in high demand.
Energy and especially Electrical Energy is needed for everything we do in today’s world. Climate change is real and caused by burning fossil fuels. While energy prices are low at the moment they won’t stay low in the long term. So, we need new ways to produce energy and we need to make smarter use of the energy we have. The EU and Ireland have set very ambitious targets for renewable energy and energy efficiency. The outcome of the COP21 Climate Change Agreement in Paris may lead to more aggressive energy targets. Meeting these targets will need huge investment in energy production, distribution, monitoring and control systems. This will create jobs for people with the right skills.
