Electrical Energy Technology

The coming decades will see major changes in the way in which energy is produced, distributed, and used worldwide. Sustainability and the environment are key words for this development, and — in the period up to 2050 — the entire Danish energy system is to be converted to make Denmark CO2 neutral.

The energy is to come from wind, sun, hydrogen, and biomass, and will be centred on the national power grid. As a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) with competences in electrical energy and high voltage systems, you will help lead the way towards more sustainable energy and the green transition.

What will you learn?

The Electrical Energy Technology study programme provides you with solid electrotechnical competences, backed by the skills required to understand and design electrical energy systems. 

Development of the complex power systems of the future requires interdisciplinarity and the ability to serve as the link between multiple technical disciplines. You will therefore learn to solve concrete technical problems related to electrical energy technology logistics, and to design innovative solutions and evaluate them professionally.

 

Study programme structure

During the first three semesters, you will primarily study compulsory courses in mathematics, physics, programming, control technology, and a wide range of electrotechnical subjects. You will subsequently specialize in either electrical energy systems or high voltage systems. You fine tune your profile through electives chosen based on your interests.

The programme concludes with a six-month engineering internship in a company, where you will typically also do your final project.

 

Career opportunities

The study programme qualifies you to work with design, operation, and development in the field of electricity and energy. Graduates often find employment in the consultancy sector, electricity utilities, manufacturing companies, installation enterprises, and electrical/power technology service companies.

The demand for energy skills is global and there are good job opportunities abroad.
