Programme overview


The M.Sc. in Energy Engineering is aimed at Italian and foreign students and offers a good level of interdisciplinary preparation for working in professional, industry and research at international level in the field of the sustainable energy production, conversion, transportation, storage and saving.

Learning by doing

The M.Sc. in Energy Engineering offers a unique international experience. The modules are taught in English, Free English classes are offered to Students, two Double Degree Programs are available, the first with Université Savoie Mont Blanc (Double Degree EMESB), the second with MCI Innsbruck (Double Degree EM3ES).

Career perspectives

Energy production and distribution companies, energy conversion manufacturing industries, energy engineering firms, research institutions, energy planning offices and regulatory development.


What you will learn

applying knowledge and understanding

devise, plan, design and manage processes and systems through the use of models and experiments

making judgements

analyze and solve complex problems related to the production, conversion and storage of energy

communication skills

explain energy issues to non-expert stakeholders

Did you know that...

the M.Sc. course works in partnership with industries and research institutes in Liguria, in Italy and abroad

all modules are taught in English and free English courses are offered to En2 students

you can obtain a Double Degree EMESB (European Master in Engineering for Energy and Sustainable Building) or a Double Degree EM3ES (European Master in Engineering for Energy and Environmental Sustainability)

graduates can critically evaluate the data through the use of models and experiments

graduates will have the ability to employ new technologies with particular reference to energy production sustainability

about 50% of En2 students come from abroad


The course consists of modules that include thermofluid dynamics and thermo-chemical dynamics, as well as fluid machinery and energy conversion systems (cogeneration, fuel cells, power plants from renewable energy sources and smart grids), traditional energy and civil engineering plants, electric networks, economics, available and emerging technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental monitoring.

The course is aimed at students seeking high qualification in the following main fields:

  • energy conversion processes from chemical, biochemical, thermal sources into mechanical and electrical counterparts
  • sustainable & distributed energy: renewable energy (solar, geothermal, wind, hydro), fuel cells, biofuels, smart power grids, low emission power plants
  • sustainable development: C02 sequestration, LCA analysis, biomass exploitation, energy audit in buildings, energy from waste, recycling, modelling and experimental techniques devoted to optimum energy management.

Welcome Energy Students.
I am the Coordinator of the MSc in Energy Engineering, where I teach Advanced Propulsion Systems and Green Fuels. You will find in our Course a community of students coming from far Countries and Italian students interested in all the engineering aspects of Energy (conversion, management, storage, transmission, etc.) with a strong focus on renewable and environmentally-friendly sources. Our mission is to grow high level Engineers, with a special International Attitude to work in research and production teams. For this reason, we also offer Two Double Degree Programs with French and Austrian Universities. See You in Savona Campus!
