The course provides knowledge of the energy and material flows in the built environment. The energy analysis include energy use in the life cycle of a building, and various fossil fuel and biomass-based energy systems. The material flow focuses on the environmental impacts of different structural material (eg, wood, concrete, metals) used in the production of buildings.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
