Do you want to share your energy talent to move to a sustainable world? Then, the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management at Hanze University of Applied Sciences is something for you! View the promotion film!
In 2010 EUREC selected Hanze UAS to be the first University of Applied Sciences to offer the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management, because of its good facilities and research in the field of energy. Based on the Master in Renewable Energy, it was decided to develop a second EUREC master on Sustainable Energy System Management addressing the growing need for professionals able to develop viable business cases for integration and optimization of renewables in the energy system and for the continuing development of sustainable energy markets. It boasts extensive professional and academic networks both in and outside the Netherlands. The North of the Netherlands has sublime expertise on energy transition. Because of many years of experience in gas transitions, this part of the country is a true energy region and has a huge national and international energy network. Hanze UAS is situated in the centre of this energy valley; it is the top sector in energy. The European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management is linked to the Energy Academy Europe. This is collaboration between Hanze UAS, the University of Groningen (RUG), Energy Valley, the municipal and province of Groningen. Top education, top research and business come together in this Energy Academy Europe.

Do you want to become a manager of innovation projects aimed at achieving a sustainable energy system? Study at Hanze University of Applied Sciences!
Hanze UAS guarantees high quality education in an inspiring study environment. There are many possibilities for you to complete your study within prominent energy research programmes, such as the Flexi programmes that are part of CARE-I
Of course,you have the opportunity to use the extensive and professional energy network of Hanze UAS. This network consists of companies and research centres in the energy sector. The following important partners collaborate: The schools of Hanze University of Applied Science who working on energy topics from different perspectives e.g from an engineering management, energy business ((international)business schools, and energy economics (energyfinance). At these Schools the most important aspects are quality, innovation and passion in the field of energy and technology. Our students work at real-life problems that have not yet been solved and they contribute towards finding the solution. Let us bridge the gap between the growing industry demand for specialized Sustainable Energy System Management expertise and the skills available in the job market. Education and research activities are linked in the Center of Applied Research and Innovation – Energy (CARE-I). The wide range of research facilities, which include professional laboratories within Hanze’s own building (i.e. two complete bioreactors)and facilities at RenQi (i.e. a fully-functional educational wind tunnel, solarcell testers, gas storage simulation systems) as well as the extensive international energy network consisting of EDC (HEC (Hansa Energy Corridor)) and EnergyValley, amongst others.
Become part of this inspiring energetic environment!
