About Energy and Environmental Sciences at University of Groningen

What are the solutions to the environmental issues on a global scale, like climate change, sustainable development and the greenhouse effect? What alternative sources of energy do we need to explore?

The Master's degree programme in Energy and EnvironmentalSciences focuses on the large-scale issues and contributes topossible solutions to the energy and environmental challenges. The programme participates in the new Energy Academy Europe(international centre of excellence). This ensures closeconnections to top research, industries and consultancies. Thesynergy results in a wide range of research topics focusing onenergy and sustainability, such as:

  • Renewable, innovative energy systems
  • Climate and atmosphere
  • Geo-energy
  • Combustion technology
  • Bio-fuels technology, land and ocean-based
  • Energy and land use scenario's and modeling

The Master's programme is accessible for several Bachelordegrees in Natural Sciences (e.g. Biology, Physics, Chemistryetc.).
