Course Aim
The  course aims to give the student experience of actual energy problems in working life.

1. Knowledge and Understanding
After completing the course, the student can:

  • explain and illustrate advanced energy engineering problems and systems

2. Skills and Abilities
After completing the course, the student can:

  • plan, design, and carry out advanced tasks within specified limits
  • analyze and critically evaluate different technical solutions with respect to technique, economy, and sustainability  
  • writing and orally present energy problems, models, and results for professionals

3. Judgement and approach
After completing the course, the student can:

  • critically and independently formulate, reduce and evaluate energy technical problems
  • reflect on the conditions for equality in energy engineering

Project design, literature search, and review of previous studies, configurations of studied systems, energy and mass balance calculations, engineering feasibility and selection of components, technical economic analysis of systems, environmental assessment.

Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.
This is a project course in which industry and community stakeholders have suggested several sharp projects they want to do i.e., real problems they need solutions to. For each proposal, a short project specification where the background to the project, the purpose/objective of the project as well as a preliminary work are established. The project is carried out as a group project with guidance from the proposer of the project and a teacher from the university.

If there is a decision on special educational support, in accordance with the Guideline Student's rights and obligations at Luleå University of Technology, an adapted or alternative form of examination can be provided.
The examination consists of four parts where the student will be graded individually according to the grading scale: unapproved, 3, 4, and 5. All parts must be performed by the student in order to be approved. The four parts are:
  1. Planning and individual evaluation of the implementation and the choice of approach to solve the task.
  2. Intermediate oral presentation - oral presentation of the project design, methodology, implementation and preliminary results.
  3. Final oral presentation - oral presentation of project results
  4. Final report - written technical report
