Energy Engineering

Energy is a foundation for our conditions of life and an important item on the Danish agenda as well as the international. As a student in Energy Engineering, you can help keeping the society moving, flying and running and help solving fundamental energy-related issues that affect people across borders and continents. Energy Engineering students will help identifying and defining the future energy sources, such as wind turbines, solar panels, fuel cells and biofuels. You gain knowledge about novel energy technologies and help in optimising existing apparatus and systems to reduce energy consumption.

The industry wants such candidates with cooperation skills which the project and group work provide and Energy Engineers are in short supply – Denmark will lack 13,500 engineers in 2025. During the study programme you will have possibilities to work with high tech companies and will become part of an exciting international environment and have the possibility of exciting international stays. 
Furthermore, Aalborg University has a flexible incubator environment that supports your creative dream and business idea. 

Become part of the future team of engineers

Studying Energy Engineering at Aalborg University in Denmark makes you become part of the future team of engineers who work to ensure our environment and our climate through the use of alternative sources of energy which do not pollute, and at the same time optimize energy systems so we save energy.

You can choose between the following Master of Science (MSc) in Energy Engineering specialisations:

SEE the curriculum for energy engineering

 

All specialisations are founded in research-based teaching, applying the latest technologies. You will work by means of Problem Based Learning solving a real-life problem together with fellow students.

This is a full-time study programme, which is characterised by problem based project work in groups. You will be working closely with other students most of the time, and you are required to be present at the university on a daily basis and spend a vast majority of your day there.

AAU collaborates with external companies, which means that you will have opportunity to do your semester projects in collaboration with these or other external companies and gain some real-life, hands-on experiences while you are studying.
