    MSc in Energy Conversion MSc in Energy Conversion

    The students of Energy Conversion study energy economics, environmental impacts, savings and emissions, renewable energy sources and power plant processes. After graduating, they will be able to analyse, design and select energy conversion processes for different applications, taking technological, economic, environmental and societal aspects into account.
    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 (2019-2020) consists of:
    - Core studies of 14-15 ECTS credits
    - Specialisation studies of 72 ECTS credits (at minimum), including a Master's thesis
    - Minor studies of 20 ECTS credits
    - Elective studies.

    The extent of the minor studies is a min. of 20 ECTS cr. The following minors are recommended for the M.Sc. in Energy Conversion:
    YmDSaResp Environmental Responsibility
    SaDREE Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency
    KeSOD400 Biobased Chemical Engineering (suitable for distance learning).
    If the total of specialisation studies exceeds 80 cr., no minor studies are required.

    The student must take enough elective studies to reach the total of 120 ECTS cr. required for the Master's degree.
    Information on language and communication studies.
