KUL ESAT has very good reputation. What do you want to specialize in EE? In my previous threads I've discussed on this. Please go through them.

FYI ESAT and IMEC are working together in many research topics.

gowthamtce Thanks dude for tagging billa Rocker.pg schottky pulse & olivergomes to this thread and I really appreciate all your views & insights regarding KU Leuven !!

So I'm asking all for advice !! What will be your suggestion w.r.t my predicament indicated on the 1st post in this thread ??

Should I go for TU Munich Master of Science in Power Engg [TUM -MSPE] albeit the course being more inclined towards mechanical oriented subjects??

Or should I opt for KIC InnoEnergy SENSE- Smart Electrical Networks & Systems programme dealing with innovations in Smart-Grid technologies.
I've been offered Full-funding for this course with the mobility-tack of 1st year in KU Leuven & 2nd yr (tentative allotment / might change) in UPC. Barcelona. BAsed on the specializations on offer for the 2nd year course, I might have the option to choose between :

1) KTH: Intelligent Transmission Networks
2) Uppsala Univ(UU) : Storage
3) UPC, Barcelona : Power Electronics as enabling technology for Renewable Integration
4) INP Grenoble, France: Energy Management in Buildings & power Grids.
5) Karlsruhe, KIT: Information Systems & Electricity Markets.

Considering that I'll be in the 1st batch of this InnoEnergy SENSE programme, should I go ahead with this kind of consortium course or should I rather go for the regular Msters course in TUM ??

Plz advice...I'm in a dilemma d'oh!

I'm an Electrical passout interested for MAster's in the Power Engineering domain mostly Power electronics, Power Systems, Smart-Grids.

It covers tuition fees and living expenses? If so, That's the best option without a doubt.

EIT itself is nothing, you will get degrees from universities you will attend, so there is nothing to worry about such things.

Depends on your thesis.


Hope it helps.

I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not.

Thanku billaji for your reply !!

Yes , the Category-A scholarship offered indeed covers the whole tuition fee of 16000E + monthly stipend of 750E for 24 months + health insurance cover & 1000E travel grant.

But considering money not to be a constraint, would you still advise me to go for the KIC InnoEnergy course at KU Leuven & UPC barcelona(tentative); over & above the regular 2 yhear Masters @ TU Munich ??!!

The degree offered will be a double degree by both the 1st & 2nd yr universities covered in the mobility-track

jdiator IMO, if you're interested in the EIT courses, you should go for that. There's no reason to be confused. KU Leuven & UPC are very well known universities and you will get degrees from both of them.

jdiator, I will endorse the same views what others have told.
If you like the course structure of InnoEnergy SENSE, go for it. The schools offering it are one of the top ones.

As far as the TUM is concerned, there is doubt about the reputation of it.

I would say, both are good places.
My personal choice would have been - InnoEnergy SENSE.

Regards,
Vinay

jdiator: I had already voted earlier. I would say that KIC InnoEnergy SENSE should be the natural choice.
