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.
The curricula for the three specialisations - Sustainable Power Generation, Sustainable Energy Utilization in the Built Enviroment 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.
Participants 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 preparatory perspective.
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.
* Introduction to Energy Technology
* Sustainable Energy Utilization
* Sustainable Power Generation
* Renewable Energy Technology
* Energy Management
* Numerical Methods in Energy Technology
* Energy Management
Applied courses in either:
* Sustainable Power Generation (SPG),
* Sustainable Energy Utilization (SEU), or
* Solar Energy (SOL, in conjunction with Dalarna University College, Campus Borlänge)
* Applied Energy Technology, Project Course
* Measurement Techniques in Energy Technology
* Theory and Methodology of Science
* Additional advanced electives
* Degree project
Each student is assigned a degree project on which he/she typically works over a period of 5-6 months (30 ECTS). The project may be carried out either in an academic environment (university, research institute, or equivalent) or in an industrial setting (power plant, energy consulting agency, or other industry/business). 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.
General admission requirements
The general requirements are the same for all applicants to advanced level studies in Sweden.
1. Previous studies
A completed Bachelor's degree.
A completed Bachelor's degree, corresponding to a Swedish Bachelor's degree (180 ECTS), or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognised university. The university has to be listed in the latest edition of the International Handbook of Universities. A Bachelor's degree in Science or Engineering is required for most programmes at KTH.
2. Language requirements
Applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency which is most commonly established through an internationally recognised test.
* Paper-based test: total result of 575 (written test, grade 4.5)
* Internet-based test: total result of 90 (written test, grade 20)
English test results from TOEFL should be sent directly from the ETS test centre to University Studies in Sweden (code 9520).
* A minimum overall mark of 6.5, with no section lower than 5.5 (only Academic Training accepted)
University of Cambridge/ University of Oxford Certificates
* Certificate of Advanced English
* Certificate of Proficiency
* Diploma of English Studies
* Minimum grade C.
The selection process for Sustainable Energy Engineering is based on a total evaluation of the following selection criteria: university, grades, courses relevant to the programme, letter of motivation, thesis proposal, work experience and references.
All applications must be supported by documentation including Transcripts of Records, Degree certificate/Diploma, proof of English proficiency etc.
In addition, the following set of documents is required for the Master's programme in Sustainable Energy Engineering:
* Thesis proposal
* Letter of motivation
* 2 letters of recommendation
* Curriculum Vitae
* Certificate showing relevant work experience, if applicable
