Department of Energy Technology
The Department of Energy Technology is a part of the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine at Aalborg University, and it is organised in six sections covering the following main competence areas; Electric Power Systems, Power Electronic Systems, Electrical Machines, Fluid Power Systems, Fluid Mechanics and Combustion and Thermal Energy Systems.
The Department has a comprehensive cooperation with industry and research institutions concerning PhD, co-financed positions, research projects, consultant work etc. Thus, the Department carries out research within all competence fields and a number of multi-disciplinary research programmes.
Furthermore, the Department provides teaching resources to a number of B.Sc. and M.Sc. programmes in the field of Electronic, Mechanical and Energy Engineering.
The Department has education and research facilities in Aalborg as well as Esbjerg. The core competence areas in Esbjerg are primarily fluid mechanics, thermal energy system, biomass and electronic control.
Further information on the education and research facilities in Esbjerg may be found at the homepage of Esbjerg Institute of Energy Technology.
It is the Department’s aim to teach and carry out research at the highest level within the field of Energy Engineering. Moreover, our mission is to produce graduates at Bachelor, Master and PhD levels at an internationally recognised standard. The Department of Energy Technology produces new scientific knowledge, furthering the interests of both Industry and Danish society in general.
