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 the knowledge and understanding to develop an energy technology product, a machine and/or some components
  • Have knowledge and understanding of their functional principles and their use
  • Have knowledge of how to draw up requirements and specifications for a product
  • Be able to understand basic principles in mechanics, thermodynamics and energy conversion and storage
  • Be able to understand basic principles of syntax of common programming languages


  • Be able to select, describe and apply relevant technical, scientific and contextual models, theories and methods for analysis, processing and problem solving of the chosen energy engineering issue
  • Be able to process the chosen energy engineering problem with the inclusion of relevant contexts and/or perspectives, including ethical ones
  • Be able to make a critical assessment of the relevance of the acquired knowledge in relation to the project work, including assessing the suitability of the chosen models, theories and/or methods
  • Be able to carry out a methodical and consistent assessment for an energy technology product, technically as well as socially
  • Be able to set up simulation models for selected parts of the product
  • Be able to carry out practical tests of the product in the laboratory or process relevant data from other experimental work
  • Be able to analyse the obtained or used data and compare them with simulated values
  • Be able to analyse and develop technical solutions from a sustainability perspective


  • Be able to plan, manage and perspective a project work, including overseeing meeting planning and delegation
  • Be able to make a systematic choice of methods for knowledge acquisition in connection with problem analysis and problem processing of 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.
