The Decentralized Smart Energy Systems programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology is enhanced by a wide range of associated partners from international universities, SMEs, large industries and other EU consortia. The programme includes an integrated mobility scheme, with the first year in UL, where students master the physical principles and the governing parameters of the main renewable energy sources, energy storage technologies, conversion systems between energy carriers applied to the control and optimization of smart multi-carrier decentralized energy systems.
The third semester is spent either at KTH, UPC or PoliTo where students specialize respectively in integration of decentralized energy systems in a global energy system, thermal energy engineering or energy storage by power-to-X. The fourth semester corresponds to an internship/MSc thesis particularly offered by DENSYS associated partners, either in the industry sector or in a research institution.
Decentralized Smart Energy Systems at KTH
The overall goals of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree “DENSYS” are the following:
- educate top skilled engineers with multiphysics approaches, who will be able to design, size, optimize and operate decentralized smart energy systems, with a sufficient level of systemic overview, which enables analyzing the complex interactions in energy systems,
- train future researchers (for both public and private sectors), as decentralized energy systems still require strong R&D investments, at the system scale (smart management), at the component scale (e.g. optimization of the lifespan, energy efficiency or density, …) and at the elementary mechanisms scale.
- train highly-qualified students to contribute optimally to this field by providing a “T-shaped*” multinational educational profile. The vertical bar of the T representing the depth of skills and expertise in the mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering disciplines, while the horizontal bar represents a more general understanding of other disciplines, creating an ability to account for the complexity of decentralized energy systems and to work with experts in other areas of expertise.
- provide to students an international network as well as a genuine European learning, an integrated cultural and language experience.
