The Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering from Lund University 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 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 a 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.
Career prospectsCurrently, there are very big changes in the world's energy supply.
The programme aims to develop future energy technology professionals by providing them with deep theoretical knowledge in combination with hands-on practical experience. The programme will prepare students and develop the necessary professional knowledge for a career in energy companies, authorities or consulting firms.
The energy industry is large. For example, more than half of the world's 20 largest companies (in revenue) are oil or energy companies. Planned investments in infrastructure (transformation and transfer) are huge. The consequences for the labour market should be that the demand for people educated in energy technology will continue to increase. As an example, the site recruiter.com predicts a 5% annual increase in demand for "Energy Engineers" for the US market, and we expect an even bigger demand in the BRICS countries.
