Programme overview

The landscape of the energy industry is drastically changing throughout the world due to concern over global warming, push for using carbon-neutral energy sources, geopolitical problems connected to the fossil fuel sources and increasing demand for electricity. Strict regulations over the emissions from the energy industry and new roadmaps for a fossil-fuel-free future are in place in many countries. Worldwide, companies, universities and research institutes are exploring new technologies and improving existing technologies to meet new demands and regulations.

The programme relates mainly to energy conversion and energy distribution, which concerns technical equipment such as power plants, fuel cells, engines, batteries or heat pumps and are usually based on the more basic sciences thermo- and fluid dynamics, but also other parts of physics as well as parts of chemistry. The programme is a cooperation between the Departments of Energy Sciences, Architecture and the Built Environment, Biomedical Engineering and Technology and Society at LTH – the faculty of Engineering at Lund University. The research at the participating departments are multifaceted and the goals range from increased energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact to more efficient energy supply in sustainable urban construction. This expertise should now be implemented in the education of future students to fill the gap between the graduate's knowledge and fast-changing energy industry. The proposed master’s programme is aimed to address this gap.

You will have some freedom to choose courses fitting your personal interest and can choose between four tracks, i.e., automotive, computational, electric power systems and space heating and cooling. The programme features both theoretical and practical learning, as well as group assignments and presentations. In addition to courses, all of our students undertake a research project for their Master’s thesis. The project can be done either in cooperation with industry or be of an academic nature and can be carried out either locally or abroad.
