Energy Technologies


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The module is based on knowledge achieved in the project module Energy systems of the future or similar.

Learning objectives


  • Have knowledge and comprehension within the development of an energy engineering product, a machine and/or components
  • Have knowledge and understanding within its functional principles and their application
  • Have knowledge of how to set up a specification requirement for a product
  • Understand fundamental principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, energy conversion and storage


  • Be able to select, describe and apply relevant technical, scientific and contextual models, theories and methods, and through problem based learning, carry out analysis and problem solving of a chosen energy engineering problem
  • Be able to solve the chosen energy engineering problem including relevant contexts and/or perspectives, including ethical issues
  • Be able to make a critical evaluation of the relevance of the gathered knowledge in relation to the project work and evaluate the applicability of the chosen digital models, theories and/or methods
  • Be able to make a methodical and consequent evaluation of the energy engineering product technically and socially
  • Be able to set up simulation models for selected parts of a product
  • Be able to make practical test of the product in the laboratory or digitally apply relevant data from other experimental work
  • Be able to analyse the achieved test results or the collected data and compare these with the simulated values
  • Be able to analyse and develop technical solutions in a sustainable perspective


  • Be able to plan, manage and put the project work into perspective, including being in charge of planning of meetings and delegation
  • Be able to make a systematic choice of methods for acquisition of knowledge in connection with problem analysis and problem-solving in an energy engineering problem

Type of instruction

Problem-based and project-organised work in groups The project may be discipline-oriented, interdisciplinary or part of a multidisciplinary project depending on project choice. Documentation of applied data must be attached to the P2 report in the form of well-structured and methodical records. The project work is documented in a P2 project report and participation in a presentation seminar.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS project work, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student.
