The University About us...

The University of Luxembourg is an international research university with a distinctly multilingual and interdisciplinary character.

The University was founded in 2003 and counts more than 6,700 students and more than 2,000 employees from around the world.

The University’s faculties and interdisciplinary centres focus on research in the areas of Computer Science and ICT Security, Materials Science, European and International Law, Finance and Financial Innovation, Education, Contemporary and Digital History.

In addition, the University focuses on cross-disciplinary research in the areas of Data Modelling and Simulation as well as Health and System Biomedicine.

Times Higher Education ranks the University of Luxembourg #3 worldwide for its international outlook, #20 in the Young University Ranking 2021 and among the top 250 universities worldwide.

The Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) contributes multidisciplinary expertise in the fields of Mathematics , Physics , Engineering , Computer Science , Life Sciences and Medicine .

Through its dual mission of teaching and research, the FSTM seeks to generate and disseminate knowledge and train new generations of responsible citizens, in order to better understand, explain and advance society and environment we live in.

The Department of Engineering performs applied research in energy technology. Research projects are typically carried out with industrial, governmental and international cooperation partners.

Due to strongly fluctuating renewable PV or wind electricity production and also variable energy needs (day-night and summer-winter) sector coupling is becoming a key-topic.

It begins with Smart Grids, i.e. the intelligent prediction of electricity and its intelligent load shift of use with economic incentives, i.

e. variable price. Then it includes short term electricity storage in batteries and power to heat. When it comes to long term storage, hydrogen and all derived chemicals (methane, methanol, ammonia,.

  • are actually discussed including the re-conversation into electricity. As energetic and economic efficiency are strongly dependent on predicted electric production and use, the application of artificial intelligence will be part of the solutions.
  • The Energy Sector Coupling research and teaching will be executed in close cooperation with the colleges of the department and national and international partner institutions.
