Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering
Heat and Power Engineering
First year: Aalto. Second year: Chalmers.
From school year 2017/2018 this study track will be offered from Aalto University first year and Chalmers University second year, study plan for 2017-2018. Students admitted in 2016 will follow the study plan from 2016-2017.
This track meets the challenge set global warming and depletion of fossil fuel resources by providing state-of-the-art education in advanced technologies and systems for efficient, clean and competitive conversion, distribution and use of electricity, heating and cooling.
Training is provided in the use of optimization and modelling tools for design and planning on the technical plant level, including state-of-the-art technologies, at the same time that necessary knowledge on energy systems is given in order to gain perspective.
Students become skilled in analysis, optimization and design of combined heat and power plants and industrial heat processes, acquiring also state-of-the-art knowledge on technologies for fuel conversion with reduced or zero CO2 emissions (biomass and waste conversion, Carbon Capture and Storage technologies).
By acquiring complementary knowledge on an energy systems level, students are trained to approach problem-solving in an interdisciplinary way.
Students are prepared for a professional career within the energy industry and power generation companies.
