Master's Programme in Energy Conversion

Knowledge of energy conversion is essential for designing energy systems for a sustainable future.

Energy production is in transition. Energy consumption is increasing globally, and energy production currently causes significant environmental impacts; from greenhouse gases to particle emissions. It is clear that we need more energy and that we need clean energy. The Energy Conversion gives you a comprehensive understanding of how different energy production and conversion methods relate to each other and act as components in energy systems.

You will understand how different production/conversion methods are used and how they compare with each other in different applications. You will understand the related technical, environmental and economic aspects and how they compare in producing sustainable and feasible energy for the society.

The programme will deepen your knowledge, skills and competences in energy technology, e.g. energy economics, environmental impacts, savings and emissions, renewable energy sources, and power plant processes.

After graduating, you will be able to analyse, design and select energy conversion processes for different applications, taking technological, economic, environmental and societal aspects into account.
