Renewable energy from wind, water, solar and biomass play an increasing role both nationally as well as internationally. If you hold a Bachelor degree in engineering, you can attain insight into the potential of renewable energy processes and energy systems of the future.
In Sweden, the EU and large parts of the rest of the world, biofuels are the most important and largest of the renewable energy sources, although wind power and solar energy are on the rise. What should be considered during the handling of biofuels and which processes and systems are appropriate to choose when planning for future energy production? And how can our society become more efficient in energy use? You learn about planning for future energy systems and processes and attain knowledge of project management and research methods. Career opportunities are global and rapidly increasing.
The programme provides a basis for a career as an energy system planner, energy strategist, environmental investigator or project manager. Career opportunities are global and rapidly increasing, especially if you choose a career as a consultant.
Upon successful completion of the programme, the student is awarded the Master of Science (120 credits) with specilization in Sustainable Energy Processes and Systems
Main field of Study: Bioenergy Technology
