Please note that applicants from countries outside the European Union/EEA-area are required to pay tuition fees. A master’s degree programme (60–90 ECTS credits) at Arcada costs 4,500 euros/semester during the first academic year and then 2,000 euro/semester thereafter.
The Master’s Degree Programme in Real Estate Energy (60 ECTS)
Did you know that the European Union has set a goal for 2050 in which CO2 emissions relating to real estate energy consumption will be cut by 90 percent? This ambitious energy and climate target means that we now face a monumental task of finding new and sustainable solutions for future development and refurbishment of buildings. Traditional deep renovations are, however, far too expensive and thus new approaches are needed.
This is why Arcada, in co-operation with leading partner institutions in Europe and the rest of the world, is preparing to launch a new master’s degree programme in Real Estate Energy. The programme is aimed at professionals in the field of energy, construction or HVAC engineering looking to gain competence and knowledge to tackle these new challenges. The foundation of the degree programme is sustainable refurbishment, both in terms of financial and environmental issues. The comprehensive curriculum covers topics such as: The future directions of energy and climate, with focus on energy resources, energy politics on a global level, climate change, renewable energy technologies and electric grid issues; Energy diagnosis of real estate and renovations, with focus on both energy efficiency and comfort; Sustainable development of real estate to meet the energy and climate target of 2050; and financial, project and change management of real estate renovations.
Scheduled tuition takes place at Arcada typically between 2 and 5 days a month (mainly in the evenings and on weekends) while the rest of the education is carried out on-line. In other words, you have the opportunity to study while working. Studies can be completed in 1,5–2,5 years. Any candidate with at least three years of relevant work experience and a suitable bachelor’s degree in energy, HVAC or building construction engineering can apply.
