The Master Degree in Energy Engineering was created in 2009, transforming the "Specialist Degree" Course of the same denomination, activated in 2006. The Course is the result of a cultural project that led to the stipulation of an agreement between the University of Sannio and the University of Naples Federico II: despite the fact that the course is based in Benevento, the agreement with the Federico II University makes it possible to broaden the spectrum of skills available for teaching, and also to make research facilities (laboratories) of the University of Naples available to students.

That said, the cultural structure of the Master's Degree offers a broad and balanced spectrum in the three main reference areas (chemical, electrical and thermomechanical engineering). The course is therefore aimed at forming an engineer operating as a self-employed professional/consultant or as an employee of public and private institutions, with a complete preparation in the sector, capable of entering into an operational context that is very diversified in terms of dimensions and types and is characterized by rapid evolution both from the technological point of view and from that of work organization.

The curricular activities related to the basic disciplines are aimed at integrating the methodological and operational knowledge of mathematics and other basic sciences, bringing them to a level sufficient to face problems of modeling and experimental analysis of the complex physical and chemical phenomena involved in energy transformations.

Characterizing and related training activities provide the methodological and operational knowledge of energy engineering and allow the attainment of a good degree of in-depth analysis of some specific problems, also taking into account innovative technologies and the most up-to-date analysis tools.

At the end of the course of studies, the graduate in energy engineering will know in depth the theoretical and scientific aspects of both mathematics and other basic sciences and engineering, with particular reference to those of energy engineering, in which it is capable of identifying, formulating and solving, even in an innovative way, complex problems or those requiring an interdisciplinary approach. He/she will also be able to conceive, plan, design, and manage complex and/or innovative systems, processes, and services, using adequate and up-to-date methods, techniques, and tools, while at the same time presenting the issues relating to safety and compliance with the environment and territory, aspects of corporate culture and professional ethics.

With reference to professional skills, the course aims at a deepening of knowledge mainly in the field of planning, analysis, and control of civil and industrial energy plants. Outgoing preparation involves the knowledge of at least one European Union language in addition to Italian, and adequate computer skills that enable the graduate to use the tools currently available and to follow the evolution of technologies in the information sector.
