The future energy challenge calls for new supplies of affordable sustainable energy.
Making greater use of the renewable energy systems available is a way to meet the climate change challenge while helping to secure the availability of energy supplies to us all. In this programme, you will learn how to produce energy safely, economically, and using low-emission technology and renewable energy sources.
After graduation, you will understand the benefits and drawbacks of different bioenergy generation technologies and will be able to design small-scale bioenergy systems.
Intended learning outcomes
After completing this Master’s programme, you will be able to:
- analyse, design and select energy conversion processes for different applications, taking technological, economical, environmental and societal aspects into account

work as specialist in energy technology.
Degree structure and studies
The Master’s Programme in Bioenergy Systems is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.
The programme includes core and specialisation studies.
Core studies (17-18 ECTS credits) include courses on maintenance management, bioenergy, technology and society, turbomachinery.
Specialisation studies (102 ECTS credits). Specialisation studies include obligatory and elective studies:
Obligatory specialisation studies (59 ECTS credits) include courses on energy systems engineering, bioenergy technology solutions, energy economics, steam boilers.
Elective specialisation studies (43 ECTS credits) include courses on district heating, advanced modelling for transport phenomena, steam turbines, renewable energy technology.
The Master’s thesis and seminar, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. It is completed during the fourth semester of the degree programme.
Double degree studies for LUT degree students
The programme also offers students a possibility for double degree studies. Students admitted to the double degree programme receive a degree certificate from two universities after they have fulfilled the degree requirements of both universities involved.
Students admitted to complete the Master’s degree in this Master’s programme at LUT may apply for the double degree programme with the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnical University.
You can find the most recent information about available courses, teaching schedules and degree structures from the LUT study guide.
