Energy Technologies


Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

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

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

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 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 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.
