Renewable Energy Engineering
The Master Degree in Renewable Energy Engineering aims to train engineers capable of intervening in renewable energy projects, enabling them to design, analyze, conduct and manage these ventures in their technical, environmental and economic aspects, both in business and in research context.
The provided competences give a broad overview of the energy problems in general and of renewables in particular, and an in-depth technical training of some types of use.
The course conveys a vision mainly (but not exclusively) oriented for electric conversion, with a concern with the environmental and economic-legal aspects associated to the use of renewable energies.
MEER is taught in Portuguese. However, some teachers may, on their own initiative, use English in part of the classes, or in tutorial accompaniment, for the benefit of foreign students.

Conditions of admittance
The following modes of evaluation are used with regard to academic qualifications:
- Evaluation based solely on an examination or completion of a final project.
- Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester excluding examination or final project. In these courses students can expect to carry out, for example, laboratory activities, mini-tests, tests, individual or group projects, seminar-related activities, any combination of which will be used to determine the final grade.
- Evaluation based obligatorily on an examination or a final project. In these courses there extists a form of evaluation similar to one of the aformentioned activities in paragraph 2 as well as a form of evaluation based on a final exam.
- Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester with the possibility of foregoing an examination or a final project.
The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
