About

Besides analysing the present and expected future energy systems and technologies, the Sustainable Energy Systems programme at the Chalmers University of Technology covers the transition between them.

Overview

Global warming and fossil fuel depletion increasingly place the development of sustainable energy systems at the top of political agendas around the world. Major investments in new energy technologies and systems to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions will continue to grow the coming decades.

To meet this challenge this master’s programme,Sustainable Energy Systems at the Chalmers University of Technology, provides a state of the art education lectured by world-leading researchers and industry professionals in combination with access to unique research facilities.

By acquiring deep technical knowledge in the main energy technologies and by understanding how they interact with economics and energy policies, our graduates become experts in identifying sustainable solutions to complex problems in the energy field.

Career

Examples of general career opportunities include the process and utility industry, energy and consulting companies, energy equipment manufacturers, larger municipalities, government agencies and research institutes.
