The Nordic Master in Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering (ISEE) is a world class energy education leading to a Master of Science degree. The Nordic Master Programme in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering (Nordic Master) is offered by Aalto University.

About

The term sustainable energy engineering comprises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional, renewable and alternative) aimed at providing energy at the lowest possible economic, environmental and social cost. Emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of related technical, environmental and socio-economic issues.

Strong emphasis is also put on the innovative and entrepreneurial aspects of the energy society, especially with regard to how existing and new efficiency-improving innovations can be brought to market in different countries. The innovative aspects of the programme are related to both the advanced renewable energy concept in the Nordic countries as well as new businesses in the energy sector.

Study programme

The focus of ISEE is to provide a state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources like conventional and new power generation, solar energy, biomass energy, wind power, and energy utilisation in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies. The programme is structured as pre-defined study and mobility tracks with associated competence profiles. Each consortium member university – KTH (Sweden), Chalmers (Sweden), NTNU (Norway), DTU (Denmark) and Aalto University (Finland) – has lead responsibility for one track.
