Master's Program "Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering" provides state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources. The topics covered are:
- conventional and new power generation
- solar energy
- biomass energy
- wind power
- energy utilization in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies.
The term 'sustainable energy engineering' comprises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional and renewable/alternative) aimed at providing energy at the least financial, environmental and social cost. A strong emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socio-economic issues. The programme teaches participants to address a diverse range of energy engineering problems. Innovative and entrepreneurial aspects of the energy society are emphasized. How existing and new efficiency improvement innovations can be brought to the market in different countries is of particular interest, as well as the advanced renewable concept in the Nordic countries.
Students from all over the world can apply for the programme. The admitted students across the 5 study tracks gather each year in one of the Nordic Five Tech Universities (NTNU, KTH, Chalmers, DTU and Aalto) during a 3 days Winter School event.
