Joint Nordic Master in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering

120 credits (MSc, 2 years)

The purpose of the Nordic Master in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources like conventional and new power generation, solar energy, biomass energy, wind power, geothermal power, and 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. Another strong emphasys is put on the innovative and entrepreneurial aspects of the energy society, especially related to how existing and new efficiency improvement innovations can be brought to the market in different countries. The innovative aspects inside the programme are both related to the advanced renewable concept in the Nordic countries as well as regards to new businesses in the energy sector.

 

Study at two Nordic universities

The Master’s programme in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering is a collaboration between five leading technical universities in the Nordic countries (Nordic Five Tech). The programme gives you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests.
 
You will get to study at two of the partner universities in different countries (however, note that it is not possible to study at both Chalmers and KTH), spending one year at each one, and you will graduate with a double master’s degree. The universities participating in the Master's in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering are:

Aalto University, Finland

Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway
Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Denmark
The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden

 

The coordinator of the Nordic Master in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering is the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Chalmers University of Technology participates in the following tracks:

  • Geothermal Energy
  • Heat and Power Engineering
