Course Content last updated on September 21, 2020
This course provides students with advanced skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and business.
The course is designed for students with a background in engineering (such as mechanical engineering, chemical engineering or energy) or science (physics, chemistry, environmental science) or economics.
The course is also suitable for the applicants with a background in architecture, geography, business, management or other similar subjects, with evidence of their basic mathematics skill and their basic knowledge or experience in energy.
The online program in Sustainable Energy Engineering provides state-of-the-art education in the fields of solar energy, power generation, energy utilization, and transformation of energy systems. Also, cross-cutting and interdisciplinary challenges address multiple impacts such as land use and climate change in an integrated holistic approach. After completion of the program, you will have a broad knowledge of energy engineering, and have acquired skills in managing complex problems, taking into account lifecycle perspective. We educate leaders and developers for future innovation in energy.
In today’s volatile, complex, and uncertain world, it is crucial for businesses to understand key environmental as well as societal risks and opportunities. Both demand successful management by business leaders in order to drive innovation, improve operational efficiency, and create value for their firm and society.
The energy field is an international and dynamic area in which well-trained engineers are in constant demand. Graduates find employment in industry, government agencies and consultancies. The master’s programme in Sustainable Energy Engineering is also an excellent starting point for a research career, as many graduates go on to doctoral studies.
After the completion of this programme, you will be able to manage technical problems from a systems perspective, with a holistic view of their life cycle, from concept to specification, development, operation and decommissioning. You will also be confident in characterising an energy challenge, determining the necessary resource consumption and managing processes for problem-solving/realisation. Our aim is that you will have a particularly good understanding of the fact that engineering problems are often complex, and sometimes involve conflicting conditions. You will become aware of the responsibilities and ethical standpoints that may arise in connection with various technical, organisational, economic, ecological and societal activities.
Thus, the programme prepares you for immediate engagement in the development and implementation of sustainable energy technology, leadership positions in the field, as well as academic research. The future is bright, and, with properly trained engineers, society will reach sustainability in energy systems. Graduates from the programme can be among else be found in the consulting companies ÅF, SWECO and WSP, in energy utilities such as Vattenfall and EDF, in the building companies NCC and Skanska, and other organisations such as Scania Group, InnoEnergy and Swedish Energy Agency, IRENA, World Bank and the International Energy Agency.
