When studying in the Thermal Energy and Process Engineering programme of Aalborg University, you primarily focus on thermal energy technologies and systems, and you work with advanced aspects of energy system modelling, heat and mass transfer, control engineering and experimental work with focus on different components and energy system aspects.
The specialisation is multidisciplinary and covers the integration of general engineering disciplines, such as thermal systems, fluid- and aerodynamics, control engineering and electrical engineering.
You will work with topics such as:
- Design, modelling and optimisation of energy systems used in various energy production applications
- Operation, functionality and interaction between the various components of key thermal energy conversion technologies
- System integration with respect to both system efficiency and control engineering aspects of energy systems
- Developing, constructing and operating thermal energy conversion technologies in the laboratory and in real applications
- Practical realisation and implementation of thermal energy technologies and systems concerning innovative aspects, business planning and financial considerations.
Job and Career
Thermal Energy engineers with the specialisation in Thermal Energy and Process Engineering have a wide range of job opportunities. 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".
Your work tasks may include:
- Energy distribution to the general population
- Energy optimisation of apparatus, systems and households
- Development of new energy technologies and systems
- Analysing new energy technologies
- Researching energy resources
- Assessing the sustainability of different forms of energy
- Energy efficiency in the production and consumption of energy
- Hydraulic wave energy systems.
