Energy and environment belong together. Renewable energy is becoming increasingly important to us.
In Sweden, as in the European Union in general, biomass, particularly that from the forest, is the most important renewable energy source, even though wind power is expanding fast. So, how do you go about *omit working with biomass? What are the most important things to think about? The number of global business and career opportunitiesis on a constant rise.
Disregarding elective courses and the Masters’ thesis, the main contents are:
- Fuel resources and –logistics. What resources are there? And how can these resources be transported in a sustainable way?
- Unit operations and combustion technology. How to handle biomass? Drying, transport, storage...how can we get as much energy as possible from agriculture, forestry or waste?
- Investigation methods and mathematical statistics. How to count on this?
- Projects as a working model
The programme provides a basis for a career as an investigator, an environmental auditor or supervisor or as a consultant within the public sector or in private enterprises. The labour market is international – especially for consultants. The programme also offers additional training for improved qualifications with engineers or bachelors already working in the area.
Upon successful completion of the programme, the student is awarded the degree Master of Science in Bioenergy Technology.
