Where do we come from and where are we going? At our department we search for answers to the really big questions. In a long time perspective, the lifecycles of stars and galaxies provide an insight into the origin and future of the universe, earth and life. We also observe our planet and the interaction between society, technology and nature in order to develop technologies, models and tools that can meet global challenges regarding natural resources, climate impact and energy supply.
We educate engineers that can contribute to a sustainable, fair and environmentally friendly society.
We observe the universe, the earth, the climate and energy systems to drive sustainable development on various levels.
