Programme overview

The first semester provides you with insights and an overview of the complexity of energy transition at various levels. You will look at the need for energy transition from a societal, economical and geographical perspective. During the semester, you will follow courses like Society In Transition, New Business Models and Energy Technologies and Systems. You will also learn how the behavior of stakeholders in relation to energy transition can be influenced. 

During the second semester, you will learn what it takes to actually make energy transition happen, by looking at energy transition from a political, geographical and societal perspective. During one of the courses you will learn how to establish a public dialogue and address societal and political issues related to energy transition. A course like Spatial Transformations will focus on the effects of energy transition on the environment and landscape and show you how people can be enticed to participate in the transformation process. You will also apply the acquired knowledge and expertise from the first and second semester to real-life projects.

In the third and final semester you will work on your thesis project. In this project you will have to demonstrate that you are able to act as a true transition strategist. You will approach a 'real-life' complex problem within a (local) energy transition context from a transdisciplinary perspective.
