Overview

Knowledge of energy conversion is essential in 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 Master's programme in 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.

Careers

The Energy Conversion programme at LUT University will provide you access to the latest information about the renewable energy sector and how it affects your future career.

You will train to work in international, multidisciplinary and multicultural environments.

The already expansive energy sector is growing globally, but in addition, it is changing to respond to global challenges. Our graduates have the skills to not only cope with the transition, but to be its drivers. There is a constant need for new experts with the latest skills and understanding of the technologies available currently and in the future.

Our graduates work in many fields. However, they most typically build careers in research and development, energy production and/or sales, or as sales engineers, managers, consultants, and civil servants. The global energy sector is extensive and offers plenty of opportunities to work in large companies, SMEs, government institutions or NGOs.

Graduates find work as specialists in, for instance, design and product development, production and operation, management, sales and marketing, research and education, and public agencies and organisations.
