Master in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering

The Master's programme in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering pools the facilities, innovation and talent from energy departments at the largest technical universities in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

The purpose of the programme is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources and new power generation. These areas include: bioenergy, energy systems, geothermal energy, heat and power engineering, solar cell systems and materials, and system integration of wind power.

Programme outline

Students have the opportunity to choose several study tracks offered at partner universities. The program has a 1 + 1 structure, i.e. one year of study at the chosen partner university, followed by one year of study at a second partner university (mobility is a requirement). This structure allows for a large degree of flexibility in selecting both course specialisation, and the setting for studies.

Innovative and entrepreneurial aspects are highlighted via the advanced renewable energy concepts that are being implemented in the Nordic countries. Participants gain proficiency in project design and implementation, operation and maintenance, policy generation and systems analysis. Advanced training with a research-oriented perspective is also included.

Cooperation with Nordic universities

This programme offers exchange opportunities with leading Nordic universities, the Nordic Master network:

  • Chalmers
  • Denmark Technical University, DTU
  • Helsinki University of Technology, Aalto University
  • Nordic Master
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU
  • University of Iceland

Degree project

Each student is assigned a thesis project on which he/she typically works over a period of six months. The project may be carried out in either an academic environment (university, research institute, or equivalent) or in an industrial setting (power plant, energy consulting agency, or other industry/business). Thesis projects are often linked to ongoing research activities at one or more of the partner universities.

Career prospects

The energy field is an international and dynamic area where well-trained engineers are in constant demand, particularly for engineers exposed to practices in the Nordic countries. Employment opportunities are very strong.
