The IMES Master aims to train the next generation of bioenergy project managers: a sound background on the whole bioenergy chain allows the master graduates to take full control on each step of the chain, from the production to the energy conversion, not omitting the complex legislation and economic issues.
Several disciplines are included in the education and training path: industrial engineering, agriculture and forestry, chemistry, biology, law, economics and statistics.
The Course is divided in 5 main modules (topics)

  • Biomass Production
  • Power Generation And System Analysis
  • Renewable Energy & Bioenergy Generation
  • Environment
  • Business Management and Economy
