This platform aims at providing advanced competencies in the sectors of energy, environment and industrial innovation. The energy profile trains highly skilled technicians in renewable energy systems, energy efficiency and energy planning. The environment profile focuses on risk protection and prevention, climate change and water management. The industrial innovation profile promotes the new frontiers of innovation such as industry 4.0, Internet of Things/Big Data/Data Analytics, social innovation and circular economy.
