Hydrogen in the Energy Transition

Start: February

  • Science and Engineering

Do you want to contribute to the switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy? Are you an engineer who can think creatively? Who wants to take on a challenge? And who can work in multiple disciplines? Then the programme Hydrogen in the Energy Transition might be something for you!

In this programme, you will work in a multidisciplinary team on a topical issue in the market, in which hydrogen will be used as an energy carrier. Think, for example, of making an industrial plant completely off-grid or expanding a hydrogen production facility with a link to hydrogen storage and distribution systems. Hydrogen will play an important role in our energy systems in industry, the built environment and mobility. There are plenty of exciting projects that you can contribute to!

We teach with the principle that you only really learn when you have the opportunity to apply what you have learned. Therefore students are able to directly apply their knowledge by working on actual projects in the industry. You will acquire a lot of knowledge while doing the project.

However, there is a training course with lectures for all the teams:

  • An overarching training in safe design of hydrogen plants
  • A workshop on legislation in the energy transition

You will learn by working on a relevant and complex problem in a multidisciplinary setting. You will gain insight into other disciplines and you will acquire new knowledge from a direct need for that knowledge in a project.

The programme will provide lectures/training in sub-areas that are determined by the knowledge demanded by the project. Depending on the expertise, these lectures will be given by subject teachers, EnTranCe experts or external guest lecturers. EnTranCe provides expertise from the professorships Hydrogen and System Integration.

Take a look at the ECTS course catalogue (please look at 'exchange programmes') for more information.

Please note that the schedule for this programme may vary from week to week. The programme is intensive and students who apply for this programme are expected to be available and present for the whole duration of the programme.

Before you can start

The programme is offered in the third year of a (4-year) bachelor programme. Students need to have completed 120 ECTS credits (4 semesters) at undergraduate level in the field of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering & Management, Built Environment or Chemical Engineering. Other backgrounds might be welcome, but after consultation.
