Understanding complex systems and modern technologies is essential for designing and utilising clean and efficient energy production.

The Master’s Programme in Sustainable Energy Systems gives you a comprehensive understanding of how different, sustainable and modern energy systems work and what needs to be considered when they are designed and utilized.

In this programme, you will understand the technical requirements and limitations of the various technologies needed for modern and sustainable energy systems.

After completion of the Master’s programme, you will possess:

  • Professional skills to work as a specialist in energy technology.
  • Competence to design and analyse sustainable and modern energy systems and integrate them into existing energy production and consumption systems that include economic, environmental and societal aspects.
  • Knowledge on how to apply mathematical and physical fundaments to model, solve and analyse energy technology related problems and challenges and design relevant technology, processes and systems.
  • Managerial skills to manage a team and to act as a part of the project team.


Degree structure and studies


The Master's Programme in Sustainable Energy Systems is a two-year programme.

It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits. The programme includes core, advanced specialisation, minor and elective studies as well as a Master’s thesis.



Career prospects


The programme gives you insights about the recent advances in energy systems and a stepping stone for launching your future career.

The already expansive energy sector is growing globally, but in addition, it is changing to respond to global challenges. Our graduates have the skills to not only cope with the transition, but to be its drivers. There is a constant need for new experts with the latest skills and understanding of the technologies available currently and in the future.




Our graduates work in many fields. However, they most typically build careers in research and development, energy production and/or sales, or as sales engineers, managers, consultants, and civil servants. The global energy sector is extensive and offers plenty of opportunities to work in large companies, SMEs, government institutions or NGOs.

Graduates find work as specialists in, for instance, design and product development, production and operation, management, sales and marketing, research and education, and public agencies and organisations.
