Master Programme in Energy Engineering, Energy Online 60 cr

The purpose of the degree programme is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of energy engineering by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies.The goal comprises increasing the efficiency of the systems for the best possible rational use of resources such as labour, capital, raw-material and energy as well as warding off threatening environmental changes.

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.
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).
