Introduction to the programme

With a MSc in Engineering (Energy Technology) you will become an expert in analysing, developing and integrating many different types of energy systems into the overall energy system. Your competencies will be in high demand in society’s transition to a green future.

Future challenges in the entire energy system must be solved by developing existing and new energy technologies such as wind turbines, biomass, solar cells and fuel cells. Part of the solution is smart energy networks, where smart components such as electric cars and heat pumps communicate with the electricity market and to balance production and consumption. This is managed intelligently through the digital transformation of the energy sector taking place in these years.

However, finding the answer to the future energy challenges is not simple, as the production and distribution of energy take place in a complex interplay between technology, economics and legislation. With a MSc in Engineering (Energy Technology) you will become an expert in the analysis of energy systems so that you can understand and master the complex interplay. You will also be able to choose to specialise in energy informatics, where the focus is on the digital transition.

The Master’s programme


In the Master's part of the degree, you will deal with energy system analysis. You will work in-depth with the technological modelling of energy processes, and the technical analysis of the environmental and societal consequences of energy technology. If you take the Energy Informatics route, you will work with data-based intelligent use of energy data for the optimisation of energy systems and processes.

You will acquire the professional and technical knowledge needed to be involved in operational and development work across various energy systems. Additionally, you will be ready to act as a link between experts and generalists, technicians and politicians.

You can also help analyse and optimise the use of existing and new energy technologies such as:

  • Wind turbines
  • Biomass systems
  • Solar cells
  • Fuel cells
  • Wave energy systems
  • Heat pumps
  • The future of CHP plants
  • Smart Grid

Project work and an exciting research based study environment

You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out the project – and for meeting the deadlines. Usually we receive the projects from companies and we make a point of allowing you to solve ‘real-world’ problems. 

Versatile career paths

With a master degree in Energy Technology you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you could work as a project engineer in the sector of district heating or electricity supply or as a consultancy manager.

Please notice that this program as a full degree will only be offered to danish citizents.
