About the studies
The term sustainable energy engineering comprises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional and renewable/alternative) aimed at providing energy at the least financial, environmental and social cost.
A strong emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socioeconomic issues. Advanced methods are applied to identify, describe, quantify and find solutions to a diverse range of energy engineering problems. The programme provides proficiency in project design and implementation, operation and maintenance, as well as in crucial phases of policy generation.
Energy Online is offered in joint cooperation between two Swedish universities (University of Gävle “HiG” and Royal Institute of Technology “KTH”). The official language throughout the studies is English. There are no restrictions related to geographical location. The program is a distance-based educational program and all courses can be followed online (the lectures will be available online on a web-based learning management system for watching at any time).

After the studies
The labour market for a master's degree in energy engineering exists, for example, at the energy companies, the processing industry, and within the consultant and contract business. Expected tasks are, for example, research and development, project management and efficiency improvement in the field of energy engineering.
- Master of Science (60 Credits)
A completed Bachelor's degree, corresponding to a Swedish Bachelor's degree (180 ECTS), or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognised university.
The degree must be within the area of energy, mechanics, building or another adequate subject area. Also required is a minimum of 12 ects in Thermodynamics and Fluid mechanics.
English language proficiency equivalent to (the Swedish upper secondary school) English course B/6.
