About

When you study Sustainable Energy Engineering at Aalborg University, you can choose the specialisation in Process Engineering and Combustion Technology (PECT).

Overview

The Process Engineering and Combustion Technology specialisation primarily focuses on advanced competences in combustion technology, thermal energy systems, fluid mechanics and systems in Heat, Ventilation, Aircondition and Control (HVAC), including CFD and multiphase flows. The specialisation provides opportunities to focus on both bio-energy to offshore oil and gas systems.

You will explore questions such as:

  • Design, modelling and optimisation of thermal energy systems used in various energy production applications
  • Operation, functionality and interaction between the various components of key combustion and process technologies
  • Systems integration with respect to both systems efficiency and engineering aspects of thermal energy systems
  • Development, construction and operation of combustion technologies and process systems in laboratory and in real applications
  • Practical realisation and implementation of thermal energy technologies and systems concerning both innovative aspects, business planning and economic considerations.

Job and Career 

Sustainable Energy engineers with the specialisation in Process Engineering and Combustion Technology at Aalborg University have a wide range of career opportunities. As a graduate, you can work in project engineering, research, development and management in Danish and international industries or public institutions.

Problem based learning and working in groups during your study programme will give you many useful skills that make you an attractive candidate on the job market. You know how to approach a problem and solve it in collaboration with other people, which is often how things are done in the "real world".

Examples of possible employers:

  • Energy companies such as Vattenfall and Ørsted
  • Process engineering companies such as B&W Vølund
  • A wide range of producers of high efficiency energy devices such as Grundfos, Dantherm Power
  • Consultancies involved in energy technology and systems
