Environomical Pathways for Sustainable Energy Systems at KTH

Sustainable energy services is one of the key issues for humanity, considering the complete environmental footprint for the services delivered. The programme starts from the concept of basic renewable energy sources (sun, wind, geothermal) and considers the pathways towards a future sustainable energy system. The curriculum rests on a strong foundation in thermal sciences, emphasising the thermodynamic tools of exergy and thermoeconomic analysis.

The programme is operated by a consortium consisting of universities and their associated industry partners. It offers extended industrial contacts integrated throughout the whole programme, especially as part of internships and seminars/workshops. The curriculum is jointly offered with teacher mobility for certain common lectures, but also remote teaching by specialist teachers. The programme offers modern and interactive learning material including virtual workshops which enhances the student learning process.

Each year a kick-off and a spring seminar bring together first and second year students from all partner universities. These events give the students the possibility for networking and group discussions in an international setting.

Mobility

Degree project

The degree project will be performed during the 4th semester. Topics are in the field of sustainable energy systems and are carried out at a company or partner university.

Careers

The programme gives you the best possible foundation for a career in sustainable energy. After graduation, you will be able to analyze, develop and implement the advanced innovations needed to realize a sustainable path towards our future energy system. In addition, the built-in mobility enhances the cultural awareness and adaptability of all participating students. These are highly sought-after attributes in the global job market of today.

The close connection with industry and the clear focus on entrepreneurship and business create an array of opportunities in many different organizations. As a graduate you possess the potential to start your own innovative business venture, the expert knowledge to work as a consultant, and the investigative skills to continue your research studies towards a PhD or work in a R&D department.
