About

An engineer studying in the Indoor Environmental and Energy Engineering programme of Aalborg University is responsible for creating an ideal environment for work as well as leisure while at the same time considering how the energy consumption can be reduced. An ideal indoor environment is an environment that considers the individual’s well-being and comfort.

Overview

Reduction of energy use in buildings

Construction and operation of buildings are responsible for more than 40% of the energy use and material consumption in the world today. An engineer specialising in Indoor Environmental and Energy Engineering can reduce this considerably by optimal design of the building and the building envelope, choice of materials, utilisation of different kinds of renewable energy and optimisation of the operation of the building.

You can work with subjects such as

  • Simulation of indoor climate 
  • Energy consumption
  • Airflow
  • Ventilation plants
  • Isolation

The Indoor Environmental and Energy Engineering programme of Aalborg University  provides you with the opportunity to work with e.g. energy flux in a building with an air conditioning system, ventilation and a healthy indoor environment and energy-efficient buildings.

In your semester projects, you and your project group will work with relevant issues within the programme’s field of study, that challenge you to use all of your collected knowledge to come up with possible solutions. You are encouraged to occasionally collaborate with external organisations and businesses in your projects to get an idea of the work pro.

Job and Career

Graduates from Indoor Environmental and Energy Engineering have many possible career paths, both in private companies and the public sector.

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”. Furthermore, you have experience with collaborating with others from different professional and cultural backgrounds.

You can work with specific building assignments doing calculations, choosing materials, and supervising the construction process.

Your work tasks may include:

  • Energy efficient buildings
  • Alternative energy
  • Computer simulations of airflows
  • Indoor climate in offices and houses
  • Heating plants
  • Mechanical and natural ventilation

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • Numerical Methods
  • Fluid Mechanics and Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Building Related Fluid Mechanics
  • Ventilation, Airflow and Contaminant Transport in Buildings
  • Ventilation in an operating room
  • Simulation of smoke flow in a fire
