Master in Energy and Environment

Home / Masters and specializations  / Master in Energy and Environment

We intend to train leaders in socio-economic and cultural changes in line with the integral improvement of the energy chain: energy efficiency, environmental care, energy policy and regulation, management of distributed energy and incorporation of renewable energies into smart grids.

Graduates will be able to link up technical concepts, use modern tools for simulation and design, propose and develop efficient, sustainable and competitive solutions and network with multidisciplinary teams.

The Master in Energy and Environment, jointly taught by ITBA and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), is part of the Binational Program to Strengthen Argentinian-German Interuniversity Networks. It is a double degree program with title of “Master in Energy and Environment” awarded by ITBA and “Master in Mechanical Engineering” awarded by KIT.  The Ministry of Education of each country, grant language courses for students and mobility of students and lecturers.

This Master’s degree is targeted at engineers interested in energy and environmental issues, such as generation, transportation, distribution, consumption, emission, renewable natural resources, new technologies, regulation and economics.
