Sustainable Energy Engineering at KTH

The curricula for the four study profiles – Sustainable Power Generation, Sustainable Energy Utilisation, Transformation of Energy Systems, 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.

Each student conducts a degree project on which they typically work 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.

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.
