INTRODUCTION

A powerful force is driving industrial growth and change, and it’s only getting stronger. That force? Uncertainty. Society increasingly demands more efficient transport, more power production, safer energy exploration and processing, less waste, smarter products and of course, all at lower costs. All these demands spotlight uncertainty, and how we need to manage uncertainty through engineering, science and technology. Modern engineers face an intriguing set of challenges when tackling uncertainty and they have developed some of the smartest methods, tools, techniques and approaches for understanding system safety, risk and reliability.

The Master of Engineering (Safety, Risk and Reliability) is the ideal gateway to boost your capacity to tackle these real world increasingly complex issues. In the 21st century, industry will routinely deal with novel hazardous processing technologies, complex energy grid load-balancing from renewables, driverless cars, artificial vision to augment control and feedback in sub-sea exploration – and the infinitesimal scale of nanotechnologies in bionic engineering. Currently, people are at the heart of many hazardous work environments, exposed to the consequences of uncontrolled events; but soon, artificial intelligence will afford more human tasks to be automated (and present a host of newer risks, in exchange for the retired ones). This progress has to be examined in systematic terms – terms that integrate our understandings of technical fallibility, human error and political decision-making.

This program has been carefully designed to accomplish three key goals. First, a set of fundamental concepts is described in useful, manageable ways that encourage rapid and integrated knowledge-acquisition. Second, that knowledge is applied in creative and imaginative ways to afford practical, career-oriented advantages. Third, the learning that results from the integration of knowledge and application is emboldened by activities and projects, culminating in a project thesis that is the capstone of the program. This carefully designed learning journey will develop factual understanding and also exercise participant’s creativity and design-thinking capabilities. Employers are hungry for these skills, and program graduates can expect a significant advantage when interacting with employers, clients, consultants and fellow engineering peers.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

To gain entry into this program, applicants need one of the following:
a) a recognized 3-year bachelor degree in an engineering qualification in a congruent* field of practice with relevant work experience**.

Degree: Master of Science with a major in Energy and Environmental Engineering

The Sustainability Engineering and Management master’s programme deals with the multifaceted challenge of developing products, services and technical systems that contribute to increased resource-effectiveness and sustainability.

It is well-known that economic development and human welfare depend on the availability of raw materials and energy. However, the exploitation of such natural resources has many environmental implications such as climate change, resource scarcity and the uncontrolled dispersal of hazardous substances. In times of global environmental problems and concerns about the long-term availability of natural resources such as metals and minerals, incentives for using materials and energy in more intelligent and efficient ways are increasing among governments, companies and other organisations.

McKinsey, one of the largest management consultancy firms in the world, has emphasised the urgent need for a resource revolution. The aim is to address the anticipated economic and political implications of resource scarcity, steadily increasing pollution levels from primary production and the uneven distribution of natural resources among regions. Companies are thus facing the challenge of delivering increasing amounts of products and services, while at the same time preventing the depletion of natural resources, cutting costs and contributing to a sustainable society.

Combined research perspectives

This master’s programme offers a unique knowledge profile and aims to train future engineers who can contribute to such a societal transition towards the more efficient use of natural resources. More specifically, you will learn how to combine a multidisciplinary system perspective with skills in modern environmental and energy engineering. With this proactive and holistic approach, environmental problems can often be significantly limited or prevented, without jeopardising human well-being.

The programme combines the perspectives of two research groups – Energy Systems and Environmental Technology and Management – at the Department of Management and Engineering. These groups deal with system solutions and state-of-the-art research in areas like renewable energy and biofuels, energy efficiency, waste management, urban and landfill mining, corporate environmental management and integrated product-service offerings. Several renewable energy solutions have already been implemented in the region, which means that you will have the opportunity to see how such environmental technology works in practice. Moreover, there is a national research excellence centre on biogas production and utilisation located at the university, which involves a wide network of academic, industry-related and public actors.

Innovation courses included

The first semester features introductory courses in environmental engineering and energy systems, and courses in traditional engineering topics such as product development and project management. The second and third semesters involve specialisation in concepts, strategies and methods for achieving more efficient use of materials and energy, at business, inter-business and societal levels. These semesters also include courses on the development and implementation of sustainability concepts and strategies such as innovative entrepreneurship and innovation management.

Examples of courses within the programme are: Energy Systems, Large Technical Systems and the Environment, Energy Systems Analysis, Innovative Entrepreneurship, Biofuels for Transportation, Industrial Ecology, Management Systems and Sustainability, Innovation Management and Resource-Efficient Products.

The programme concludes with a degree project (30 ECTS) in the final semester.
