In this Offshore Energy Systems programme at Aalborg University - Esbjerg, you learn about design, analysis and modelling of offshore energy systems and the system component interaction. You get to work with fluid and water wave mechanics, offshore energy system including electrical and mechanical systems, together with control, optimisation and diagnosis of offshore energy systems.


During the MSc specialisation in Offshore Energy Systems from Aalborg University - Esbjerg, you will study technologies related to all different kinds of energy systems such as offshore wind turbines, offshore oil and gas production, wave energy, etc.

The specialisation gives you insight into various technologies for energy transfer, harvesting and control of offshore energy systems. Also, you gain knowledge of how to design, analyse and model mechanical systems, fluid power systems and electrical systems with complex dynamics and elements with non-linear behaviour.

You will work with topics such as:

  • Design, modelling and optimisation of energy systems used in various offshore energy applications
  • Operation, functionality and interaction between the various components of offshore energy systems
  • Systems integration with respect to both systems efficiency and control engineering aspects of offshore energy systems
  • Developing, constructing and operating offshore energy systems in the laboratory and in real applications
  • Practical realisation and implementation of offshore energy systems concerning both innovative aspects, business planning and economical considerations
