Department of Energy Technology Engineering 
Postgraduate Studies

The Department of Energy Technology Engineering, of the Technological Educational Institute (T.E.I.) of Athens, in response to great demand for postgraduate studies in the field of Energy, in conjunction with the rapid development of Energy Applications, has come to an agreement with Heriot-Watt University of Edinburgh, one of the best universities in the UK in subjects relating to energy, to conduct a postgraduate course of study.

This Postgraduate Programme entitled "MSc in Energy Technology" is conducted in cooperation of the Department of Energy Technology Engineering of the Faculty of Technological Applications of TEI Athens with the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences of the Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh. This program is an evolution of the precedent course "MSc in Energy" held successfully between the years 2007 to 2013, which has been assessed positively by the external evaluation of the Energy Technology Engineering Department in 2012.

The Postgraduate Program awards a Master of Science (MSc) in "Energy Technology" (Official Gazette Publication No 1359/B-28.5.2014). The MSc Certificate is uniform and it is awarded jointly by the two collaborating institutions.

The specific aims of the programme are to provide a practical and theoretical grounding in technologies and wider knowledge and skills relevant to the Energy sector, for the practicing Engineer, as well as Decision-making managers and Policy makers.


To address current energy issues and the future of the energy industry by integrating technologies with management strategies.

To produce postgraduates who will be able to take a leading role in the formulation of the future directions of industries related to the energy sector in the widest sense.

To equip postgraduates with knowledge and skills needed to influence positively business strategies.

To give postgraduates a broad technical understanding across the disciplines, but also deeper knowledge and working skills of chosen specialist technologies.

To enable students to operate in multidisciplinary contexts.

To develop problem-solving skills and the ability to apply such skills in developing innovative solutions in order to satisfy societyĘs practical needs.

To enable students to pursue their personal interests in depth by providing a wide range of options.
