Degree structure and studies

The Master's Programme in Energy Conversion 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.

Core studies, 22 ECTS credits, include courses on technology and society, maintenance management, power plant design and applied mathematics.

Advanced specialisation studies, 42-65 ECTS credits, include compulsory and alternative studies:

Compulsory studies: steam turbines, fluid machinery, design of fluid machinery, thermal design of steam boilers, advanced modelling tools for transport phenomena, advanced topics on the modelling of energy systems, steam boilers.

Alternative studies: bioenergy and energy use in the forest industry, turbulence models, computational fluid dynamics, energy economics, renewable energy technology, nuclear power plant engineering.

Minor studies, 0-30 ECTS credits, focus on environmental responsibility, renewable energy and energy efficiency, and bio-based chemical engineering.

Elective studies can be chosen from any discipline at LUT to complement your studies.

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is an advanced research project that students complete during their fourth semester.

You can find the most recent information about degree structures and courses from the LUT study guide 2021/2022.
