About the Program

The aim of the Master Program in Energy Systems Engineering is to educate and train engineers to work in the field of Energy Systems Engineering who are, equipped with the necessary information, gained knowledge and ability to assess and interpret information by doing scientific research and can solve complex energy problems. In addition, graduates of Energy Systems Engineers provide expertise in sub areas such as Renewable Energy Systems, Energy Management, Energy Policy, Energy Efficient Production / consumption, Energy-Environment Relations, Energy Economics, Energy Systems Modelling. Use fossil fuels pollute the environment and have become both endangered as well as their ever-increasing costs are not a desirable source of energy. Another goal of the program is concerned, with educating professionals who specialize in alternative and sustainable energy sources. Scientifically, Master of Science (MSc) education will accelerate the research activities carried out in the Energy Systems Engineering Program.

Education Opportunities

Master of Science (MSc) in Energy Systems Engineering Program has two sub-programs; with thesis and without thesis. The program with thesis consists of seven courses, seminar and thesis work. Two of the seven courses are mandatory, two are program based elective courses, and remaining three courses are graduate-level courses from other engineering programs. The program without thesis is designed for those who would like to improve themselves for educational and professional purposes. The program without thesis consists of ten courses and a MSc project. Two of these courses are mandatory, five are program based elective courses, and remaining three courses are graduate-level courses from other engineering programs. In MSc in Energy Systems Engineering program, there are courses such as energy-past, present and future, techno-economic analysis of energy applications, solar power design, integration of renewables, modern economic problems in energy systems and fundamentals of optimization of energy systems.

Career Areas

Applicants who have successfully completed their M.Sc. in Energy Systems Engineering and who wish to continue their academic career can apply to study at the national and international doctoral programs provided that they meet the acceptance criteria. Program graduates who do not prefer to continue their career academically can be employed in national and international fields related to their professions in the public and private sectors or they may establish their own businesses. Program graduates can work in the fields of energy storage devices, energy storage materials, fuels and combustion, energy conversion systems, solar energy, wind energy, biofuels, energy efficiency, energy management, energy politics/policies, power generation, transmission and distribution, intelligent networks and electric / hybrid electric vehicles.
