Master of Science in Technology, Efficient energy usage, energy economics (Entedi)

Efficient energy usage, energy economics. The programs gives insight about the energy production and consumption in Finland and elsewhere and how it relates to efficient energy usage, energy economics and environment.

Energy affects everything and is a corner stone for any civilized society. The programme gives you insight how energy is produced and consumed in Finland and elsewhere. The topics include e.g. energy economics, energy efficiency, waste heat utilization and it gives you competences to work as a member in a project team.

After completion of the studies, a student:

  • Is able to understand the meaning of different technologies, applications, processes and actions with respect to the energy production, power system, energy markets and energy usage.
  • Is able to understand the life cycle and sustainability within energy conversion context.
  • Can apply mathematical models on problems related to energy technology
  • Can act as a member of a project group and can manage projects
  • Can communicate and act as a member of academic and research community
