The purpose of the degree programme in Energy Systems 60 Cr from the 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 purpose of the programme Energy Systems 60 Cr from University of Gävle is to apply system perspectives for the analyses of different energy systems focusing on the rational use of energy and conversion to renewable energy sources. This 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.

Learning outcomes

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

After the studies

The aim is that the student after completion of the programme should have a broad know­ledge base to be able to work as a generalist in the energy field, and such deep knowledge in a selected field to be able to work as a specialist. The student should also be able to analyze new and advanced problems on an international market.
