MSc Sustainable Energy Engineering

Course Description

The MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering requires 18 months of continuous study and the completion of 120 ECTS. A personalised study plan is developed for each student with the assistance of an academic supervisor.

The world is becoming acutely aware of the urgent need to resolve the many issues associated with energy consumption and climate change. The limited availability of fossil fuels and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions call for fundamental changes in the global energy landscape. This programme will enable you to join the new generation of professionals at the forefront of the energy revolution.

The MSc in Sustainable Energy Engineering is intended for students with a background in engineering or physical sciences, who want to take a more technical perspective on developing and engineering sustainable energy systems.

This is a highly adaptable programme based on practical and fieldwork experience. Students study sustainable energy from the perspective of business, science and technology, and learn about a wide range of renewable technologies that suit different regions and societies. This includes geothermal energy, hydroelectric power, wind power and energy efficiency. Taking advantage of Iceland's position as a global leader in renewable energy development, our students experience the whole sustainable energy process from the power plant to the development of sustainable energy law at government level. On completing the programme students will be able to apply their skills and knowledge to developing solutions to energy related problems.

Personalised study plan- tailor your studies to suit your individual interests
Students develop a personal study plan, with the aid of an academic advisor, to reflect their interests which can be further developed in the final research project.
