About SEECE (English)

The Sustainable Electrical Energy Centre of Expertise (SEECE) helps to educate more and better trained engineers with a thorough understanding of renewable electric energy. Quality research and collaboration with regional companies in the energy business enables SEECE to attain a higher level of energy education and translate knowledge into commercially viable products and services.

Objectives

The following objectives must be realised by 2016:
• Produce more graduates capable of working for energy-related companies immediately after graduation.
• Increase student intake for energy-related Bachelors degree courses in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Embedded Systems Engineering and Industrial Design Engineering.
• Produce better graduates through the talent programme and student participation in energy-related degree courses.
• Increase the number of energy-related postgraduate courses and the number of students in energy-related companies
• Increase the research output of energy-related research groups.
• Increase the number of energy-related start-ups and SME innovations.
These developments are necessary to offset the growing shortage of engineers in the energy sector. Furthermore, the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy demands more employees with a greater understanding of new energy technology.

Centres of Expertise

The Sustainable Electrical Energy Centre of Expertise (SEECE) is one of 26 centres of expertise in the Netherlands that aims to enhance the quality of technical education at the Bachelors level. Entrepreneurs, scientists, governments, lecturers and students form public-private partnerships that seek alignment with the regional knowledge infrastructure. These centres contribute to both student recruitment and innovation processes.
