The purpose of the Energy Engineering Online 60 Cr degree programme from University of Gävle is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of energy engineering by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies.The goal comprises increasing the efficiency of the systems for the best possible rational use of resources such as labour, capital, raw-material and energy as well as warding off threatening environmental changes.

The term sustainable energy engineering com­prises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional and renewable/alternative) aimed at providing energy at the least financial, environmental and social cost.

A strong emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socioeconomic issues. Advanced methods are applied to identify, describe, quantify and find solutions to a diverse range of energy engineering problems. The ­programme provides proficiency in project design and implementation, operation and maintenance, as well as in crucial phases of policy generation.

After the studies
The labour market for a master's degree in energy engineering exists, for example, at the energy companies, the processing industry, and within the consultant and contract business. Expected tasks are, for example, research and development, project management and efficiency improvement in the field of energy engineering.
