M.Sc.

Overview

The master’s programme Green Hydrogen is developed to give students an application- oriented education focused on Hydrogen. The goal is to deepen and specialize one’s knowledge in production, storage, transport and application of Hydrogen, and related fields. The programme offers modules to gain in-depth technological as well as applied and competence-oriented knowledge. The theoretical base is supplemented with a project within the area of Green Hydrogen Technology and current challenges of applied research and development projects.
          To achieve this goal the programme is organized as a combination of compulsory fundamental modules, specialization modules with a stronger theoretical background; application and competence-oriented modules; as well as a project thesis including a project seminar. The programme is completed with a master’s thesis.
