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 usually taught in Portuguese. However, some teachers, on their initiative, may use English in the classes and study materials, or tutorial accompaniment, for the benefit of foreign students.
MEER graduates will be able to work in Energy Services Companies, as renewable energies consultants (conducting audits and analysis of energy efficiency and collaborating in environmental impact assessment studies), and as designers of solar projects.
They may also carry out professional duties in the industrial sector, services sector, central, regional or local administration, among others, and also perform research and development (R&D) tasks in sectors such as higher education institutions, laboratories, or industries.

Conditions of admittance
The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.
The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.
All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).
All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.
For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.
The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
