Master Programme in Energy Systems (online) 120 cr

In the future, more people with technical educations will be needed in order to meet the demands for efficient energy usage and renewable energy. During the course of the programme, you will expand your knowledge about energy systems as applied to regional, industrial and building contexts.

The future needs sustainable energy systems

The two-year Master Programme in Energy Systems offers further in-depth studies of energy systems in buildings, including applied studies in the field of sustainable cities in the second year. The in-depth studies on energy systems in buildings are geared towards simulation, optimisation and measuring techniques of and in buildings.

Engineer in different roles

As a graduate, you have a good knowledge of regional and industrial energy systems, but with the additional dimension of peak competence within the field of energy systems in buildings. Future work assignments may include innovative solutions that promote future demands for climate-neutral energy systems.

Another need is that you, after this education, have great opportunities to advance into third-cycle studies.

Labour market with long-term requirements

There is presently a great demand for students with a degree in energy-related fields, and the high demand is anticipated to continue in the foreseeable future. This demand is caused by the generation shift in combination with a significant social interest in creating sustainable energy systems, i.e., to use the available resources as efficiently as possible while taking economy, environment and energy into consideration.

After you have completed the programme, you can work as an engineer within construction, development, project planning, contract and administration. Energy companies, consulting firms, the industry, the property business etc. have a great need for engineers to develop the energy systems of the future.
