Course content

Individual work done by the student with guidense of the supervisor on a given topic by EPT.

Learning outcome


The master thesis will provide the student with knowledge within one or several areas of competence: - Gas processing - Refrigeration components and systems - Refrigeration systems and processes in the food industry - Dewatering and drying engineering - Gas transport- Industrial heat engineering - Environmental analysis - Power production systems (waterpower, thermal power) - Energy storage (electric, thermal storage hot and cold).

Skills: The master thesis should enable the student to: - Analyses, design and operation of processes, energy systems and components - Developing and implementation of new technology in energy processes - Ability to go deep in theoretic and/or practice within a specific topic by use of scientific methods, own experiments or develop models for detailed analyses - Ability to perform larger independent projects inclusive project plans with milestones, reporting results and write a scientific report according standards.

General competence: The master thesis should give the student detailed knowledge about the selected energy process. The student will be able to use this competence in projects where these topics are integrated as components or technology elements.
