The degree program in Energy Engineering is part of industrial engineering, and is characterized by a strong cross curricular approach with other sectors of industrial engineering. The aim is to therefore firstly provide a solid foundation in thermodynamics, electrical systems and machines, materials technology, mechanical structures and machines, heat transfer and fluid dynamics. The acquired background becomes the base for the specific training in energy, and in particular in the main types of industrial and power plants, in renewable sources of energy, in the optimal use and safety of energy systems, and for some basic knowledge of nuclear technologies .
The professional profile of the energy engineer falls within the more general area of industrial engineering. Training must provide the skills and cognitive tools which enable energy engineers to study and manage components, equipment and systems for the generation and use of thermal, mechanical and electrical energy from both fossil and renewable sources, while assessing the resulting safety and environmental impact issues. They must also have c... More...
