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 and specialisation studies.
Core studies (15 ECTS credits) include courses on technology and society, maintenance management, and power plant design.
Specialisation studies (min. 72 ECTS credits) include obligatory and alternative studies:
Obligatory specialisation studies (65 ECTS credits) include courses on steam turbines, the design of fluid machinery, the thermal design of steam boilers, advanced modelling tools for transport phenomena, advanced topics in modelling energy systems, and steam boilers.
Alternative specialisation studies (7-30 ECTS credits) include courses on bioenergy and energy use in the forest industry, turbulence models, computational fluid dynamics, energy economics, renewable energy technology and nuclear power plant engineering.
The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. Students complete it during their fourth semester.
