About this program

Nordic Master in Innovative Sustainable Energy Engineering

The Nordic Master in Innovative and Sustainable Energy Engineering (ISEE) is a world class energy education leading to a Master of Science degree.

The term sustainable energy engineering comprises a wide array of practices, policies and technologies (conventional, renewable and alternative) aimed at providing energy at the lowest possible economic, environmental and social cost. Emphasis is placed on dealing with energy engineering tasks with due consideration of related technical, environmental and socio-economic issues.

Strong emphasis is also put on the innovative and entrepreneurial aspects of the energy society, especially with regard to how existing and new efficiency-improving innovations can be brought to market in different countries. The innovative aspects of the program are related to both the advanced renewable energy concept in the Nordic countries as well as new businesses in the energy sector.
