A master is an advanced degree that offers in-depth knowledge and skills in a specialized area. An undergraduate degree in a related field is generally required as prerequisite to enrollment. Completion of a master’s program can lead to better career possibilities or provide the groundwork for pursuit of further graduate studies.
What is a Master in Energy Sciences? A field with global implications, energy sciences explores the sources and use of energy, evaluates the interrelationship of environment and economics, and seeks to create new options in power generation. Courses may include ecology, environmental challenges, biophysics and cosmic physics. Students develop an understanding of energy sources such as wind, sun and geothermal systems, and gain knowledge concerning management of ecosystems. Reclamation is discussed through courses in decontamination, environmental monitoring and sustainable planet rehabilitation. Instruction is also provided in technological skills such as microprocessors, computer architecture and information technologies. Training in business and innovation rounds out the program.
The study of energy sciences can produce benefits that are felt on a global scale. Finding renewable power sources allows the advancement of economic development while protecting quality of life for future generations. The field can have far-reaching advantages.
Programs are available worldwide. Cost varies according to location and course curriculum. Students should investigate their global options and select the opportunity that best meets their goals.
The need for renewable energy sources is reflected in mandatory standards that have been enacted in many venues. This has increased demand for experts in the field. Program graduates are desired for their advanced knowledge in research and management. Potential employers include government agencies, city planners, energy companies, environmental laboratories, research institutions, conservation units, public and private consulting firms, engineers and manufacturers. Specialists are also needed in energy auditing, facilities management and equipment engineering for solar and wind power.

Master in Nuclear Energy Engineering The Master’s programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering offers students an extensive and detailed education in the key areas pertaining to nuclear technology. After graduation, students will be well-prepared for future positions within the advanced nuclear technology field, or in a nuclear science and technology research environment. The Master’s programme in Nuclear Energy Engineering at KTH is also a part of the European Master in Innovative Nuclear Energy – EMINE. The first year of study at KTH can be combined with a second year of study at the top French universities either in Paris (ParisTech – a cluster of universities in Paris) or in Grenoble (Grenoble Institute of Technology – INP) resulting in a double diploma degree. Programme outlineCompulsory courses will provide all students in the programme with a strong foundation in the reactor physics and technology field. Research-oriented students will have several possibilities to choose courses in preparation for work in reactor physics research or in a nuclear engineering research environment. At the same time, students interested in more industry-related nuclear engineering can choose courses preparing them for a position in the industry, with an optional management-oriented specialisation.Degree projectStudents will complete the two-year Master’s programme with a degree project. The project and its resultant thesis may be performed at the Albanova University Centre (KTH), or at an external research facility, in a company in Sweden or in another country. With the growing need for competent employees in the nuclear industry, there are many opportunities to... [-]
