The partners in the InnoEnergy Master’s School ecosystem are driving the energy transition in many different ways. The real-life challenges they set are a core part of our programmes. This challenge-driven approach to education gives you practical experience of how they are driving change, the issues they have to consider, the problems they have to solve, and the ways they measure success.
Don’t just take out word for it – find out what current students, recent graduates – and their employers – think of the Master’s in Energy for Smart Cities, why they chose the programme, and what they plan to do next.
"I'm here to challenge myself... to see how far I can go."
Finishing my bachelor’s, I realised I did not want a master’s programme that follows the same structure. I thought of applying for a job, since I truly believe that the best way to learn is throughout experience, but then I found the InnoEnergy Master’s School. The field of energy for smart cities seemed like a perfect fit, as it offers you way more than a typical master does. They really focus on you… how to grow YOU as a person – not just the knowledge part.
"I found my passion through the programme"
I knew that attending these top-ranked universities and the study situations they would offer me would give me opportunities that I would not be able to explore at my home university. I wanted a more diverse, international community – which I was a part of through their mobility concept, allowing me to study in Stockholm, Grenoble and Barcelona. I believe these new experiences form us and let us learn a lot about ourselves. This is just as important as the technical knowledge!
My purpose is to disrupt the status quo. To those opposing it, I feel that it is our responsibility to make them listen and understand what the change will bring.
Master’s School graduate Oriol Pujoldevall is working towards the creation of the first public blockchain for the energy sector. He naturally gravitates towards roles where he can contribute the most (while having fun) in pursuing his goal to disrupt the Status Quo and be a voice in this paradigm shift.
The most valuable skill I obtained from the programme is the innovation mindset!
Master’s School graduate Maria Carnal feels very motivated and fortunate to have the opportunity to work within the sustainable energy sector at this exciting point in time. She is eager to keep learning in order to develop personally and professionally – with the selfless goal to improve everyone’s life.
