Title of the Programme
The programme shall be Master of energy technology MEng. (ET)
With an ever-growing global population and the energy demands of industries and consumers rising higher than ever before in history, we are rapidly depleting earth’s non-renewable energy resources (oil, gas and coal), and moving to a problematic change of climate. This rising problem and the accompanying challenges we are facing worldwide have raised the demand for skilled engineers to successfully develop and implement sustainable energy technologies. Do you feel called upon to make a valuable contribution to the sustainable energy transition? If so, the Master’s in Energy Technology at the IST Burkinafaso is the right choice for you. Securing a sustainable energy future implies an energy transition that will require a new generation of dedicated engineers and researchers capable of developing, optimizing, and integrating sustainable energy sources including solar power, wind power, and energy from biomass. Because of the intermittency of these sources storage of energy is an important factor for success. This requires innovative batteries and research into hydrogen as an energy source. New technologies need to be integrated into existing power networks and market structures. The design of new forms of energy distribution, energy market structures, and smart grids is necessary to satisfy the energy needs of modern societies.
Energy is the defining challenge of the 21st century. Finding solutions to important global challenges to help achieve an affordable, sustainable and clean supply of global energy is a core task for us. Do you want to develop and apply clean and effective energy technologies that will change the world? Join our Master’s programmes and you will learn how to produce energy safely, economically and using low-emission technology, as well as utilising renewable energy sources. Energy Technology includes renewable energy sources (such as solar energy, wind energy, and energy from biomass) and technologies designed to improve energy efficiency. A transition to a society based Sustainable Energy is necessary to be self-sufficient, meet the growing global demand for energy, and address the threat of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. This transition will require fundamental innovations affecting the world’s energy landscape
