The programme is divided into three semesters.
During the core semester, students acquire a solid foundation in the economic and business concepts related to innovative energy project design and implementation and their various related interdisciplinary aspects. Students can choose to take their core semester at either Hanze UAS or the University of Pisa.
The subsequent specialisation semester focuses on systems operations and optimisation (at Hanze UAS), or on sustainable energy management (at the University of Zaragoza). During this semester, in-depth conceptual lectures are accompanied by practical work and technically oriented company visits.
In the third semester, students will apply their new knowledge and skills by means of a dissertation which involves a research project at a company or a research centre.
