About

The Sustainable Energy Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides state-of-the-art education in the fields of solar energy, power generation, energy utilisation, and transformation of energy systems.

Overview

The Sustainable Energy Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology equips students with skills and insights in leadership, industrial challenges, innovation and entrepreneurship in the energy field. 

The programme provides an atmosphere and learning environment that fosters global responsibilities and sustainable development for all. 

Therefore, emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socio-economic issues.

Career

The energy field is an international and dynamic area in which well-trained engineers are in constant demand. Graduates find employment in industry, government agencies and consultancies. The master's programme in Sustainable Energy Engineering is also an excellent starting point for a research career, as many graduates go on to doctoral studies.

After the completion of this programme, you will be able to manage technical problems from a systems perspective, with a holistic view of their life cycle, from concept to specification, development, operation and decommissioning. 

You will also be confident in characterising an energy challenge, determining the necessary resource consumption and managing processes for problem-solving/realisation. 

Our aim is that you will have a particularly good understanding of the fact that engineering problems are often complex, and sometimes involve conflicting conditions. 

You will become aware of the responsibilities and ethical standpoints that may arise in connection with various technical, organisational, economic, ecological and societal activities.
