Reduction of energy use in buildings
Construction and operation of buildings are responsible for more than 40% of the energy use and material consumption in the world today. An engineer specialising in Indoor Environmental and Energy Engineering can reduce this considerably by optimal design of the building and the building envelope, choice of materials, utilisation of different kinds of renewable energy and optimisation of the operation of the building.
During the study programme in Indoor Environmental and Energy Engineering, you can work with subjects such as
- Simulation of indoor climate
- Energy consumption
- Air currents
- Ventilation plants
The programme provides you with the opportunity to work with for instance energy flux in a building with an air conditioning system, ventilation and a healthy indoor environment and energy-efficient buildings.

PROBLEM BASED LEARNING (PBL)
Aalborg University is famous for its problem based learning where you work in a team on a large written assignment often collaborating with an industrial partner. This study method is also called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning”. The method is highly recognised internationally, and the university is host to a succesful UNESCO chair in Problem Based Learning in Engineering Education and a Centre for PBL and Sustainability approved by UNESCO.
The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner. You get to apply theory to practice when you work to solve real-life problems, and you will be well-prepared for your future career.
