Fast track Energy technology

Published: 6 April 2022

The training package begins with a course in combustion and introduction to the Swedish energy system and is followed by three courses in the areas of energy technology facilities, heating and ventilation technology and the work environment.

To be eligible for this fast track, you need to have a diploma (bachelor's degree) and have studied Swedish as a second language. You must also send in your CV and personal letter in Swedish. You must be registered with the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen).

You can no longer make a late registration. Contact the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen) for more information.

  • The training package in energy technology consists of four courses over 21 weeks.
  • Participants receive higher education credits for each completed course.
  • Teaching takes place at a distance via Zoom and the teacher platform Canvas
  • The language of instruction is Swedish


Course 1: Combustion and introduction to the Swedish energy system, 7 weeks (10 credits)
The course contains:

  • Introduction to the Swedish energy system
  • Properties, handling and production methods of national fuels
  • Combustion techniques for solid, liquid and gaseous fuels. Different types of boilers are studied, their design and applications for heat and cogeneration
  • Combustion reactions. Stochiometry. Thermochemistry.
  • Formation of pollutants and the possibility of limiting them by changing the conditions of combustion.

Implementation: lectures, exercises and study visits.

Course 2: Energy Engineering Facilities, 8 weeks (10 credits)
The course contains:

  • An overview of various energy technical systems such as steam power plants, gas turbine plants and combination plants. Efficiency and economic factors in energy production are discussed.
  • Part of the course time is devoted to the implementation of a project relating to a technical / economic feasibility study for a thermal power plant.

Implementation: The course applies "problem-based learning (PBL)", lectures, arithmetic exercises and project work

Course 3: Heating and ventilation technology 4 weeks (7.0 credits)
The course contains:

  • Heating technology: Heating demand calculations, heating climate and heating system.
  • Ventilation technology: Ventilation needs and ventilation system.
  • Cooling and heat pump technology: Studies of constituent components and the impact of external heat sources and complete systems.

Implementation: Teaching consists of lectures and project work.

Course 4: Work environment 2 weeks (3.0 credits)
The course contains:

  • Review of systematic quality work, what work environment and work environment work is and how work environment work is organized.
  • Why do you have a work environment policy and what does it contain?
  • Why risk research is carried out and how is it carried out
  • Organizational and social work environment.
  • The concept of culture, there is a Swedish work culture and what it contains in that case. Organizational culture and security culture concepts and describes how people have thought about these things in Swedish working life.

Implementation: lectures and seminars
