Climate change has become possibly the world’s most serious problem, which needs our urgent attention. The problem is complex and multi-dimensional. Energy and its management are the key enablers in addressing not only the climate challenge but also other sustainable development goals. This master programme is tailored for you as an engineer or technologist to investigate and understand symbiotic and systemic relations between energy, climate, and sustainable development, and to implement innovative solutions.
Our current energy production and consumption patterns risk our future ability to support ourselves on the planet. Energy production and utilisation systems must be renewable-based and climate-smart, and the whole system must be energy-efficient, resource-efficient and economically efficient. The knowledge that you gain on this programme will be instrumental in understanding and addressing the societal challenges relating to energy and the climate through innovation and business leadership.
Through this programme, you will learn about the following:
An interdisciplinary and experienced team with profound knowledge on sustainability and development issues will teach the courses. The courses are complemented by guest lectures by experts from industry, governmental and non-profit organisations.
Several companies in the region support education in Energy and Management and will actively contribute to the programme's various courses. This is what companies say about the programme:
PWC: We see that the master's programme in Energy and management for sustainable development is interesting to us based primarily on the focus of all our customers on these issues. Customers and contacts are increasingly demanding this type of advice.
IKEA: We see the master's programme in Energy and Management as an important future competence resource. Energy will be an important future area where technology development and energy perspectives on future manufacturing and product development. The consumer perspective is also important, consumers' basis for decisions and purchases, as well as providing more access to sustainable energy.
Volvo Construction Equipment: We see that the master's degree in Energy and Management for Sustainable Development is interesting to us because it can provide an increased range of resources with the knowledge to conduct work where the environment and social sustainability are well integrated into economic development. That competence is needed so that we can continue to be a leader in every industry with the resource challenges and adjustments that are ongoing and necessary for society.
VIDA: We see a great need for qualified expertise in bioenergy, from the forest along the entire production chain to various potential areas of use. The proposed master's programme would also mean good opportunities for increased collaboration between Linnaeus University and the forest industry.
Bixia: We work actively to enable more renewable electricity in the electricity system. We view positively Linnaeus University's investment in increased competence and research in the field of energy and sustainability and that the master's programme in Energy and management for sustainable development.
