Sustainable Energy Transition (SE)

School of Environment Resources and Development | Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Change

This interdisciplinary program encompasses clean energy transition technologies, policy, environmental, social and management aspects. Graduates from this program will be able to address the challenges of energy transition, especially in the areas of low carbon electricity supply systems, reduction of energy intensity, and providing energy access to all physical and geographical areas.

The main goal of this program is to prepare students to face the impending challenges in the global energy sector through strategic state of the art knowledge, tools and research skills to support technology, market, business, finance and policy development. This is expected to prepare them to deliver solutions-oriented knowledge and innovative practices for cleaner energy transitions for human progress.
