Degree: Master of Science with a major in Mechanical Engineering
The Energy and Environmental Engineering master’s programme deals with the challenge of developing products, services and technical systems towards increased resource effectiveness.
It is a well-known fact that economic development and human welfare largely rely on accessibility of materials and energy. However, the exploitation of such natural resources generates environmental implications such as climate change, resource depletion and uncontrolled dispersal of hazardous substances. In times of global environmental problems and concerns about long-term availability of natural resources, incentives for using materials and energy in a more intelligent and efficient way are increasing among governments, companies and other organisations.
Companies are now facing the challenge of delivering increasing amounts of products and services while preventing pollution, cutting costs and contributing to a sustainable society. This master’s programme offers a unique knowledge profile and aims at training future engineers for contributing to the large transition of material and energy use. More specifically, you will learn how to combine a system perspective with skills in modern, environmental and energy technology. With such proactive approaches, environmental problems can often be limited or even entirely prevented without jeopardizing economic growth and human well-being.
This master’s programme combines the perspectives of two research groups - Energy Systems and Environmental Technology and Management - at the Department on Management and Engineering.
These groups deal with system solutions and state-of-the-art research in areas such as: renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management and recycling strategies, industrial ecology, corporate environmental management and eco-design. Several renewable energy solutions are already present in the region which means you will get the opportunity to see during study visits and student projects how such environmental technology works in practice. Moreover, here there is also a national research excellence centre on biogas production and utilisation.
The programme's first semester features introductory courses in energy and environmental issues, as well as in traditional engineering topics. Semesters two and three include specialisation in energy and environmental engineering and they also offer opportunities for diversification. Examples of courses within the programme are: Energy Systems, Large Technical Systems and the Environment, Energy Systems Analysis, Biofuels for Transportation, Industrial Ecology, Management Systems and Sustainability, Resource Efficient Products. The programme concludes with a degree project in the fourth semester.
Environmental technology, including renewable energy, is one of the fastest growing business sectors in many countries. The Energy and Environmental Engineering programme qualifies students for engineering positions in companies and authorities dealing with energy consulting, investment strategies, development of systems for energy distribution and generation, development of new products and services, renewable energy, environmental consulting, waste management and strategic environmental management. Several previous students have chosen a career within academia, pursuing PhD studies at Linköping University or at other universities throughout the world
