Renewable energy from wind, water, solar and biomass plays an increasing role both nationally as well as internationally. If you hold a Bachelor's degree in engineering, you can attain insight into the potential of renewable energy processes and energy systems of the future.
In Sweden, the EU and large parts of the rest of the world, biofuels are the most important and largest of the renewable energy sources, although wind power and solar energy are on the rise. What should be considered during the handling of biofuels and which processes and systems are appropriate to choose when planning for future energy production? And how can our society become more efficient in energy use? You learn about planning for future energy systems and processes and attain knowledge of project management and research methods. Career opportunities are global and rapidly increasing.
