Overview

The term ‘sustainable energy engineering' comprises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional and renewable/alternative) aimed at providing energy at the least financial, environmental and social cost. 

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

Another strong emphasize is put on the innovative and entrepreneurial aspects of the energy society, especially related to how existing and new efficiency improvement innovations can be brought to the market in different countries.

The innovative aspects inside the Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology are both related to the advanced renewable concept in the Nordic countries as well as regards to new businesses in the energy sector. Advanced methods are applied to identify, describe, quantify and find solutions to a diverse range of energy engineering problems.

Career

The energy field is an international and dynamic area where well-trained engineers are in constant demand. This is particularly the case for engineers exposed to practices in the Nordic countries. Employment opportunities are very strong. The graduate students could join a diverse range of careers.
