About the Program

The aim of the Energy Systems Engineering Master’s 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 the Energy Systems Engineering Program 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 modeling. The use of fossil fuels pollutes the environment and they have become an undesired source of source due to their endangerment and ever-increasing costs. Another goal of the program is concerned with educating professionals who specialize in alternative and sustainable energy sources. In terms of science, the Master of Science (M.Sc.) education will accelerate the research activities carried out in the Energy Systems Engineering Master’s Program.

Education Opportunities

Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Energy Systems Engineering has two sub-programs; the thesis and non-thesis program. The thesis program consists of seven courses, seminar and a thesis. Two of the seven courses are compulsory; and from the remaining five courses, two are program-based elective courses, and three are graduate-level elective courses from other engineering programs. The non-thesis program is designed for those who would like to improve themselves for educational and professional purposes. The non-thesis program consists of ten courses and a graduation project. Two of these courses are compulsory, five are program-based elective courses, and the remaining three courses are graduate-level elective courses from other engineering programs. The program offers courses on issues such as past, present and future of energy; techno-economic analysis of energy practices; solar power design; integration of renewables; modern economic problems in energy systems; and fundamentals of optimization of energy systems.

The main aim of this course is to enhance the understanding of thermodynamics principles and their relevance to the problems of humankind. The course provides the students with experience in applying thermodynamic principles to predict physical phenomena and to solve engineering problems. The course starts with fundamental definitions of related concepts to build up the unique vocabulary necessary in the course. The course continues with a quick introduction to the fundamental laws which are zeroth, first, second and third law of thermodynamics. The course continues with their applications to the common engineering problems such as steady flow device analysis, unsteady problem analysis and thermal system analysis.

In this course the separation of proteins, nucleic acids, and oligonucleotides from biological matrices is covered from analytical to process scales. Also in this course, the separation of monoclonal antibodies, which have found numerous uses as therapeutic and diagnostic agents will be covered. Analytical techniques include an interesting montage of chromatographic methods, capillary electrophoresis, isoelectric focusing, and mass spectrometry. Among separation and purification methods, liquid-liquid distribution, displacement chromatography, expanded bed adsorption, membrane chromatography, and simulated moving bed chromatography will be covered at length. Regulatory and economic considerations will be addressed, as are plant and process equipment and engineering process control. Application of DNA chip arrays, proteomics as well as evolving methodologies for a large number of drugs that are under development for treatment of cancer, AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease will be discussed.
