SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS
The objective of the Doctoral program in Sustainable Energy Systems is advanced training and educating top-quality researchers, capable of analyzing and designing energy systems, considering their technological, environmental, economic, and social dimensions.
Promoted by FEUP in cooperation with FCUL, ISEG, IST, and the University of Coimbra, the PhD program consists of one curricular year (60 ECTS) and three years of research leading to a dissertation (180 ECTS) and grants the degree of Doctor in Sustainable Energy Systems.
The doctoral program in Sustainable Energy Systems is targeting researchers able to propose, promote and perform R&D in Energy Systems, including the components of demand, supply, and transportation, under a sustainability perspective.
It is expected that by the end of the study cycle the students have a profound understanding of the energy conversion chains, of the concept of sustainability and its environmental impacts, of its economic and social dimensions, and the capabilities of modeling and analyzing energy systems with different vectors.
- Research, Development and Dissemination activities at R&D institutions of the Energy area;
- Advanced consultancy in companies developing activity in the Energy area.
The main research centers associated with the PDSSE are the INESC TEC and the INEGI.
