Started in the academic year 2007/2008, under the heading of Energy and Bioenergy.
The minimum number of credits for the degree is 120 (2 years). Course only start with 10 or more confirmed entries as definite by the Executive Council of the FCT NOVA.
The technical and scientific skills of a Master in Bioenergy are the following:
Evaluation capacity of potential energy production from biomass and waste in order to contribute to increasing energy production from renewable sources covering the needs of Portugal and other European countries in primary energy;
Increasing energy conversion efficiency and minimizing the environmental impacts arising from it;
Ability to develop projects highlighting forest materials contributing to reduce forest fire risks and improving local, regional and national economic;
Intervention capacity in standardization and certification processes of products and production systems and processing of recyclable materials from the energy point of view;
Contribution to the improvement of biomass recovery energy technologies, including co-generation technologies, co-gasification and of joint pyrolysis of materials whit significant calorific value.
They can also perform research and development in sectors such as universities, polytechnics and Industry. The Masters will be prepared to consulting in Bioenergy.

DCTB is the youngest department of FCT that was created in February-2011 by the FCT Direction Decision number 06/2011.
DCTB resulted from the evolution of the former GDEH in the researching and teaching areas of Sciences and Technology of Biomass for two specific aims:
