Study at two nordic universities

The joint master's programme in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering is a collaboration between the five leading technical universities in the Nordic countries ( Nordic Five Tech) and University of Iceland (UoI). The programme gives you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests.

You will get to study at two of the partner universities, spending one year at each. You graduate with a double master’s degree from the two universities. The universities participating in the joint Master's programme in Innovative Sustainable Energy Enigneering are:

Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering at KTH

The purpose of the programme is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources and new power generation. These areas include: bioenergy, energy systems, geothermal energy, heat and power engineering, solar cell systems and materials, and system integration of wind power.

Innovative and entrepreneurial aspects are highlighted via the advanced renewable energy concepts that are being implemented in the nordic countries. Participants gain proficiency in project design and implementation, operation and maintenance, policy generation and systems analysis. Advanced training with a research-oriented perspective is also included.

Students have the opportunity to choose several study tracks offered at partner universities. Two tracks are available for students wanting to study at KTH, both provided jointly with Aalto University. Students can either study the Bio Energy track with their first year at KTH and second year at Aalto University, or study the Energy Systems track with their first year at Aalto and second year at KTH. Mobility is a requirement since both options result in a double degree from the two universities. Regardless off first year university all applicants apply through NTNU.

The coordinator of the joint master's programme in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering is NTNU.

Degree project

Each student is assigned a thesis 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). Thesis projects are often linked to ongoing research activities at one or more of the partner universities.


The energy field is an international and dynamic area where well-trained engineers are in constant demand, particularly for engineers exposed to practices in the Nordic countries. Employment opportunities are very strong.

Changes in the programme may occur.
