Introduction

All the countries, especially fast developing countries, are facing a difficult challenge due to their energy needs to sustain their economical and industrial growth. On the other hand, sustainable development would depend on a shift to green energy. For these reasons the Vietnamese and French government decided two years ago that a master degree on Energy will be proposed by the University of Science and Technology of Hanoi.

This offer is unique in Vietnam in the sense that this two years master divided in 4 semesters will give to our students an overview of the main renewable energy technologies: wind power, hydroelectricity, solar energy, bio  Introduction

This offer is unique in Vietnam in the sense that this two years master divided in 4 semesters will give to our students an overview of the main renewable energy technologies: wind power, hydroelectricity, solar energy, bio resources and others. The teaching units are organized in such a way that following the master degree will give to our students a real choice for their future professional career: preparation of a PhD degree in the best French or Vietnamese laboratory or to get a position in the companies working in this field, indeed the teaching program is built on the bases of the industrial needs and some lectures or conferences will be given by engineers from these companies.resources and others.

Training program

The International Master in Energies is a master degree co- accredited by France and Vietnam. It is divided in 4 semesters, equivalent to 120 European Credits Transfer Units (ECTS). This master proposes two specialties to the students: Green Electricity and Bioenergy. The entire registered students attend the first semester. Then, they will have to choose a specialty: Green Electricity or Bioenergy for semesters 2 and 3. The fourth semester will be dedicated to a training period in an academic or industrial laboratory. The master student can receive a financial support from the host laboratory.

The first semester gives the fundamental basis useful for all students registered in this master to understand what they will have to learn in the specialties, for instance the description of the challenges for every country in general and for Vietnam in particular.

Two specialties follow for S2 and S3.
Green Electricity:
In this specialty the different green energy sources to produce electricity are analysed: hydroelectricity, pump storage, wind power, solar energy (photovoltaic).
Lectures will be given on two other important features: How to store the electrical energy (batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells …) and how to manage the different energy sources to feed the electrical network. The students will have also to drive a mini project on one of the possible applications in a quasi-real case.

Bioenergy:
Teaching focus on two main ways:
– Thermal processes to transform biomass and/or industrial or domestic waste into energetic gas.
– Biochemical processes which are also a way to produce methane and other energetic compounds.Besides the basic biology and chemistry involved in these processes and domestic or industrial use of bioenergy, special attention will be paid on reactor engineering which is necessary for the conception and manufacturing of efficient equipment.

Research activities of the Energy department are conducted in the Clean Energy and Sustainable Development (CleanED) lab. Established at USTH in December 2014, CleanED is an international and interdisciplinary research team contributing to the green growth of the energy sector in Vietnam.
