The Department of Energy Engineering currently operates at graduate level and offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in the following disciplines:

  • M.Sc. in Energy Systems Engineering in following research fields:

1- Energy Systems Engineering

This research field focuses on design, modeling and implement of integrated energy systems such as combined heat and power (CHP) for innovative applications by energy engineering concepts. The techno-economic analysis of the energy projects is the next step to evaluate the energy systems. This field of research applies the basic laws in mechanic, thermodynamic and electrical engineering to develop the energy balance concept for energy optimization in different sectors. Moreover, it also covers fundamental energy management issues and enables students to help the energy management companies, energy policy makers, oil and energy ministries and other energy related organizations. 

2- Energy Technologies

In this field of research, methodology of the conceptual and detailed design of advanced energy conversion systems as well as feasibility studies of renewable energy applications are investigated regarding to different analytical tools including mathematical programming, CFD analysis or experiments. Furthermore, the students who are enrolled in this field of research are prepared to develop the energy technology road maps as well as strategic energy plans.

3- Energy and Environment

In this research filed, the interaction between energy and environment is analyzed regarding to the basic analytical tools such as fluid dynamics and heat and mass transfer equations as well as economical concepts. Waste management, waste recycling, waste to energy pathways, environmental regulations and standards, carbon trading and water and waste water treatment technologies are the other issues covered in this field of research.

  • M.Sc. in Nuclear Engineering in following research fields:

1- Reactor Engineering
2- Nuclear Fuel Cycle
3- Applications of Radiation and Radioisotopes
4- Bio-radiation Engineering

  • Ph.D. In Energy Systems Engineering
  • Ph.D. in Nuclear Energy Engineering
