Study Programme in Energy Systems Engineering, Co-op, 180 cr

The energy industry is facing great challenges and in order to meet the requirements of the future for efficient and renewable energy, there is a need for more engineers focusing on new technology and new opportunities.

Create efficient energy systems

During the course of the education you will learn how to create efficient energy systems for housing and for industry and the country's supply in general. Of course, renewable energy is preferable but we can also make the existing energy production more efficient or minimize the use.

Choose Co-op and get closer to reality

In order to become even more attractive on the labour market, you may choose to study on a Co-op programme. This will provide you with employment experience by combining studies with work during paid periods of work at a company.
You will not get any closer to reality at a university!  

Your skills will be in demand from both producers and users

After graduation you could work within several different areas. The energy companies need engineers to develop and construct district heating systems or to work with the production of energy etc. You could also work with charting and streamlining the energy use at a property company or function as a consultant for the industry.
In order for you to get an early insight into different forms of energy we will make several study visits during the first weeks of the programme.
