Imagine a world without oil, coal, and gas. This would result in a lack of electricity and heat. We would not be able to drive our cars or take a bus – and flying would be out of the question as we would not have any fuel. We would not be able to turn on the TV, cook dinner, charge our cell phones, or turn on the lights and the heat. What would we do?
We do not know how long our oil and coal reserves will last. At the same time, we are polluting the earth with the use of oil and coal. We need to replace the sources of energy such as oil, coal, and gas with alternatives like wind, sun, and wave energy. These sources of energy do not pollute the earth, and they will not run out.

By studying Energy Engineering at Aalborg University in Denmark, you can become part of the future team of engineers who are going to ensure our environment and our climate through the use of alternative sources of energy which do not pollute and at the same time optimise the energy system and efficient apparatus so that we save energy.

Our Master's programme in Energy Eis founded in research-based teaching, applying the latest technologies. We offer the following Master of Science (MSc) specialisations:

  • Electrical Power Systems and High Voltage Engineering 
  • Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technology 
  • Mechatronic Control Engineering  
  • Power Electronics and Drives 
  • Thermal Energy and Process Engineering 
  • Wind Power Systems

Career Opportunities  

Graduates from Aalborg University are generally in high demand, and many students obtain jobs straight out of school, embarking upon careers in the IT industry, mobile communications, space aeronautics, health science technology, the media industry, etc. AAU-graduates excell in both independent work and teamwork. Some choose a career as a scientist at the university, others are employed in industry.

Former graduates of Computer Science work as e.g.
  • System developers
  • IT architects
  • Project managers
  • System administrators
  • Development consultants, etc.


Students with a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology or equivalent, or Professional Bachelors in software development can apply for the Master's programme in Computer Science (IT). Professional Bachelors in software development are further required to have followed courses in syntax and semantics as well as discrete mathematics.

Applicants with other Bachelor´s degrees will be subject to individual evaluation.

In addition, documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level.
