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.

Career Areas

Students who successfully complete their M.Sc. in Energy Systems Engineering and wish to continue their academic career can apply for the Ph.D. programs at the national and international institutions. 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.
