# Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering (Nordic Master)

Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering has an increasingly important role to play in order to ensure a sustainable future energy production. The program provides a state-of-the-art education in the fields of conventional and renewable energy sources like conventional and new power generation, solar energy, biomass energy, wind power and energy utilization in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies. More information about the program.

# Study at two Nordic universities

The Master’s program in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering is a collaboration between **five of the leading technical universities** in the Nordic countries (**Nordic Five Tech**). The program gives you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests.

You will get to study at two of the partner universities, spending one year at each. You graduate with a double master’s degree from the two universities.

**The universities participating in the Nordic Master in Innovative Sustainable Energy Enigneering are:**
