Description of Sustainable Energy Engineering

The purpose of the SEE Programme is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of solar energy, power generation, and energy utilization in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies. Strong emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socio-economic issues.

Career prospects

The energy field is an international and dynamic area where well-trained engineers are in demand. Most graduates find employment in their home countries, either in companies or government agencies (in the past a number of graduates have taken leaves of absence from their employers and returned with valuable skills and contacts). Some graduates find employment in Sweden or the EU with e.g. consulting companies. The SEE Programme is also an excellent starting point for a research career.

Course Content

The curricula for the five study profiles – Sustainable Power Generation, Sustainable Energy Utilisation, Transformation of Energy Systems, Turbomachinery and Solar Energy – are marked by an intensive introductory period followed by broad-based coursework giving participants a solid foundation for the particular study track. Advanced methods are applied to identify, describe, quantify and find solutions to a diverse range of energy engineering problems.

Students gain proficiency in project design and implementation, operation and maintenance, as well as in crucial phases of policy generation. The programme also offers substantial coursework within a research environment.

Degree project

Each student conducts a degree project on which he/she typically works over a period of six months. The project may be carried out in either an academic environment (university, research institute, or equivalent) or in an industrial setting (power plant, energy consulting agency, or other industry/business). This provides the student with an excellent platform in which to establish valuable experience and the contacts necessary for future career objectives.

Thesis projects conducted within the SEE Programme are often intimately linked to ongoing research activities at the Department of Energy Technology or collaborating groups at KTH.

Requirements for Sustainable Energy Engineering

A Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) of at least 180 ECTS. Specific requirements as specified by each Master’s programme.

Work Experience for Sustainable Energy Engineering

No work experience is required.
