Why study with us?

The Master of Sustainable Energy Systems programme is designed to provide students from various engineering disciplines with a deeper understanding on how to develop, plan and market efficient technologies for sustainable energy production and conversion, while also equipping students with the necessary skills in order to become an international engineer.

The core of the programme is focused on renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics, wind, hydropower, and biomass, and how to use them efficiently. As such, the programme provides students with both a technical and practical approach that is needed when dealing with a variety of different issues. For example, you would have the appropriate skills in order to communicate with a process engineer at the steel manufacturing plant or solar facility and would be able to accurately provide an energy-efficient (saving) solution.

Practice-oriented Degree Programme

As a University of Applied Sciences, we cooperate closely with the local industry and companies within the region, as well as with various international ones.
