Program content

The Master’s in Energy Storage is a unique two-year learning journey. It is a comprehensive deep dive into the full array of energy conversion and storage technologies from electrochemical (battery) to thermal, thermochemical, hydropower, thermos mechanical. You also have the opportunity to pursue a specialization in electric mobility or stationary applications.

You choose between three European universities, changing over between years one and two to complete semesters in two different institutions.

  • Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal
  • Aalto University, Espoo, Finland
  • Tu/e Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, Netherlands (to be confirmed later)
  • Politecnico di Torino (to be confirmed later)

In YEAR ONE you complete a full curriculum of subjects that ground you in the core technical areas of energy storage, while laying down your management understanding and business innovation mindset.

YEAR ONE constitutes the active learning cycle of the Master’s degree. Academic and theoretic activities are deeply enriched and given real-world context by interactive resources, hands-on activities and industry field trips that expose you to energy storage in action.

Project in Energy Engineering

During YEAR ONE you select a free topic related to energy storage. You will be expected to articulate and facilitate the relation between energy technologies and models for the analysis and management in technological and economical terms; to enlarge the engineer conceptual framework in order to be able to think about technology in its context. The curricular component explores important issues like viability analysis, economic and sustainability analysis.

Master's Thesis

You can choose a thesis topic that is part of a wider research project (e.g. from a university in the InnoEnergy consortium or a research centre) but it may also be directly related to industry, ranging from start-ups to large energy companies.

YEAR TWO is your chance to specialize. With the support of expert faculty and industry practitioners, you complete your Master’s thesis at your second university.

Upon completion of the program, students will graduate with a Master of Science (Technology) degree.

Career paths

As the energy system continues to decarbonise and decentralise, it becomes more complex which will inevitably require a new type of expert. The demand for skilled workers is only going to increase and more people will need to be trained, potentially for jobs that don’t even exist yet! The battery storage market could create 100,000 new jobs every year. By undertaking EIT InnoEnergy’s Master’s in Energy Storage, graduates are putting themselves on the path to career success; the master’s in energy storage delivers that new expert. Graduates get a comprehensive understanding of the battery storage landscape, placing them at the front of the queue for any potential jobs in the sector.
