    Master's Programme in Energy Systems Master's Programme in Energy Systems

    The Master's Programme in Energy Systems includes a wide array of advanced energy studies. From a broad energy perspective comprising the disciplines of renewable energy technology and nuclear energy engineering, the programme focuses on professional competence and provides students with various study options to specialize in their fields of interest.

    The programme offers two different specialisations in energy production related areas –  Bio-Energy Systems or Nuclear Engineering. The students of Bio-Energy Systems study several subjects such as bioenergy production and refining technologies, bioenergy end-use technologies and the international trade of biofuels. The students of Nuclear Engineering study the design, operation and basic structures of nuclear power plants, the modelling and optimisation of nuclear reactors and nuclear steam supply systems, radiation and nuclear safety, safety analysis methods, and fuel and radioactive waste management.

    The students will develop the knowledge and skills that will facilitate intellectual, creative, responsive and professional growth, and enable lifelong learning for continuous improvement. They will acquire competencies to go on to a career as a professional and expert in the rapidly developing, multidisciplinary area of energy and the environment, or to continue studies in doctoral programmes.

    The M.Sc. programme takes two years, corresponds to 120 ECTS credits and leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology.

    The degree structure of 120 ECTS (2018-2019) consists of:
    - Core studies of 18 ECTS credits
    - Specialisation studies (Bio-Energy Systems or Nuclear Engineering) of 72 ECTS credits (at minimum), including a Master's thesis
    - Minor studies of 20 ECTS credits
    - Elective studies.

    See the detailed degree structures in the study guides at WebOodi.

    Degree structures and course descriptions  available also in pdf-format at Uni.

    The Head of the Master's programme in Energy Systems is Head of the degree programme, D.Sc. (Tech.) Ahti Jaatinen-Värri.


    Trilateral Energy Technology

    Trilateral Master's Degree Programme in Energy Technology is launched in 2018, in cooperation with
    - Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany
    - Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russia
    - Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland.
    The 1st semester takes place in Lappeenranta, the 2nd semester in St. Petersburg and the 3rd semester in Hannover. The Master Thesis should be written at the home University. In each semester the participants can recieve 30 ECTS in approved courses at each University following lectures held in English. The teaching language for the entire programme is English.
    Successful graduates from the study programme will be awarded three degrees:
    • Master of Science (MSc) in Technology (Energy Technology) from Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany
    • Master of Science (MSc) in Technology (Energy Technology) from Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland
    • Master of Science (MSc) in Technology (Power Plant Engineering) from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russia.

    The degree structure of 120 ECTS (2018-2019) consists of:
    - Core studies of 27 ECTS credits
    - Specialisation studies in Trilateral Energy Technology Programme of 93 ECTS credits, including a Master's thesis
    - Free elective studies are allowed, but not obligatory.

    NOTE: Restricted admission.

    The Head of the Trilateral Energy Technology is Professor, D.Sc. (Tech.) Jari Backman.
