The Department of Energy Technology conduct teaching covering all aspects of energy engineering from production over transmission to distribution and sustainable energy. All teaching is research based which means that students benefit by their teachers and professors being researchers themselves. Hence, all students gain access to the newest knowledge within their area. Furthermore, the courses are constructed for students to be able to test and try out their theoretical skills practically in well-equipped and modern laboratories.
The Undergraduate Programme takes three years and spans over six semesters. From the 5th semester onwards, all teaching is done in English, partly in order to accommodate the numerous international students attending our courses. The Department also offers an Undergraduate Programme in Esbjerg.
Our Undergraduate Programme qualifies students directly for entering one of the following Postgraduate Programmes:
- Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technology (HYTEC) (Aalborg)
- Power Electronics and Drives (PED) (Aalborg)
- Electrical Power Systems and High Voltage Engineering (EPSH) (Aalborg)
- Wind Power Systems (WPS) (Aalborg)
- Mechatronic Control Engineering (MCE) (Aalborg)
- Thermal Energy and Process Engineering (TEPE) (Aalborg)
- Offshore Energy Systems (OES) (Esbjerg)
- Process Engineering and Combustion Technology (PECT) (Esbjerg)
The Postgraduate Programmes take two years, and students are encouraged to carry out their Master’s Thesis in cooperation with an industrial partner. Several companies have divisions located at the Department of Energy Technology, and thus, the students have immediate access to finding a collaboration partner.
In Aalborg students may also obtain a Bachelor of Engineering.
