As a student in energy and environmental engineering you will learn to work with energy and cleaning technology issues in a holistic perspective. You will work with concepts such as function, energy efficiency, economy and environmental influence in all areas, for instance, the heating and ventilation of buildings, process management in industry, or water and sewage treatment. There is a constant need to improve all these aspects in view of the increasing cost of energy. The role of the energy and environmental engineer is clear and important. If you wish to specialise further after earning a Bachelor of Science degree, you can continue towards a Master of Science degree.
General entry requirements plus either:
field-specific eligibility 8 (Mathematics D, Physics B and Chemistry A) or
field-specific eligibility A8 (Mathematics 3c, Physics 2 and Chemistry 1)
Students starting in the spring term start with a preparatory semester to fulfil the entry requirements and join the programme the following autumn.
You need to complete 180 credit hours to successfully obtain this degree. Please check detail of study units at https://www.kau.se/en/education/programmes-and-courses/programmes/TGHEM
Many programme courses include visits to corporate and municipal energy and purification plants where students meet with engineers who describe their tasks. Problems and data from the plants are used to practise solving problems related to the students' future work. Many companies approach us to offer information of their operations with a view to recruiting future employees. Graduates are also invited to share their experiences of studying and working.
