A reliable and affordable energy system is the basic requirement of a modern society. Today, the energy systems face challenges with the flexible integration of different energy forms (power, heat, fuels) and with the increasing complexity of the systems due to distributed power generation and emergence of active producer-customers. Integrating intermittent renewable sources, like solar, wind and wave energy, into the energy system is one of the main challenges of our sustainable future. This major offers the basic understanding of the energy system, the main challenges faced by our energy solutions today and possible pathways towards a sustainable future.
The Master's Programme in Advanced Energy Solutions is divided into four majors. Each major shares the same theoretical foundation, which is then built upon in multidisciplinary courses to broaden and deepen your understanding of the energy challenges facing our society.
The Energy Systems and Markets major offers a firm theoretical base as well as practical tools and skills needed by engineers working on the field of energy systems. Courses include theoretical considerations, experimental work, industrial applications, and first-hand experience. The major prepares students for the current and future challenges faced by energy companies, the manufacturing industry, consulting companies and society. Students are well-prepared to pursue doctoral studies.
The other majors of the Advanced Energy Solutions programme are:
- Industrial Energy Processes
- Energy in Buildings and Built Environment
- Energy Conversion Processes
