Develop resource-efficient products and services
The exploitation of natural resources has severe environmental implications, such as the emission of hazardous substances and resource scarcity. Governments, companies and organisations worldwide have been incentivised to find ways to use resources and energy in more intelligent and efficient ways. This programme deals with the multifaceted challenges of developing products, services and technical systems that contribute to increased resource efficiency and sustainability. The aim is to train future engineers who can contribute to a societal transition towards this end. You will learn how to combine a multidisciplinary system perspective with skills in modern environmental and energy engineering. With this proactive and holistic approach, environmental problems can often be significantly limited or prevented, without jeopardising human wellbeing.
Dual research perspectives
The programme joins the perspectives of two departmental research groups – Energy Systems, and Environmental Technology and Management. These groups are developing system solutions and producing internationally renowned research in areas such as renewable energy and biofuels, energy efficiency, future waste management systems, urban and industrial symbioses, integrated product service offerings, and corporate environmental management.
Specialisation in concepts, strategies and methods
The first semester features introductory courses in environmental engineering and energy systems, and courses in traditional engineering topics such as product development and project management. The second and third semesters involve specialisation in concepts, strategies and methods for achieving more efficient use of materials and energy, at business, inter-business and societal levels. These semesters also include courses on the development and implementation of sustainability concepts and strategies such as innovative entrepreneurship and innovation management. The programme concludes with a degree project (30 ECTS) in the final semester.
Technology in action
Linköping University hosts a national research excellence centre on biogas production and utilisation, and is coordinating the Mistra REES (Resource-Efficient and Effective Solutions) programme. Several renewable energy solutions have been implemented in this region, which means you will have the opportunity to see this new environmental technology in action.
- Bachelor’s degree with a major in an engineering subject. The Bachelor’s degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) shall be from an internationally recognised university.
- 30 ECTS credits in mathematics/applied mathematics and/or application of mathematics relevant for the programme.
- English corresponding to the level of English in Swedish upper secondary education (English 6/B). This is normally attested by means of an internationally recognised test.
Selection for the January application round is based on merit rating (grade tariff) at three levels. If necessary, applicants within the same merit group will be selected by lot.
