Earn a Master in Sustainable Energy Systems
The Master in Sustainable Energy Systems is aimed at students that want to develop energy conversion technologies and systems for enhancing sustainable development. Sustainable energy systems are a necessity to overcome the problems with climate changes in the world.
The Master in Sustainable Energy Systems will provide students with state-of-the-art knowledge within this important area. You will learn about technologies for utilizing wind and solar power as energy sources. The production of power and heat with the help of energy conversion based on steam and gas turbine processes is another important part of the programme. Through the duration of the Master in Sustainable Energy Systems, you will also get to know about performance analyses of these kinds of processes and the use of biomass as an energy source.
Malardalen University contributes research to the development of sustainable energy systems. The group seeks new knowledge by exploring and improving methods and implementing these in tools for advanced energy system analysis. The main activities are in two major areas within energy systems: power and district heating. The research considers aspects of the production, distribution and consumption of energy. The load capacity problems in the Nordic power market, district heating processes, as well as new forecasting and simulation tools are examples of research areas covered by the ongoing activities.
