The MSc specialisation in Process Engineering and Combustion Technology primarily focuses on advanced competences in combustion technology, bio energy systems, fluid mechanics and flow systems, including CFD and multiphase flows. The programme covers energy system modelling, control and diagnostic of these systems.

Studying this programme, you will receive the technical, conceptual and methodological tools to work professionally in the promising and innovative area of combustion energy systems.You will learn about planning and organisation of people, infrastructure, communication, media and components of a service, in order to improve its quality, the interaction between service provider and customers and the customers’ experience

The objectives of the syllabus are:
  • General understanding of the design, modelling and optimisation of combustion energy systems used in various energy production applications
  • Understanding of the detailed operation, functionality and interaction between the various components of key combustion and bio energy conversion technologies
  • Detailed insight into system integration with respect to both system efficiency and control engineering aspects of energy systems
  • Development, construction and operation of combustion energy conversion technologies and bio energy systems in laboratory and in real applications
  • Insight into the topics related to the practical realisation and implementation of thermal energy technologies and systems concerning both innovative aspects, business planning and economical considerations

Career Opportunities  

Graduates of the programme typically work in project engineering, research, development and management in Danish and international industries or public institutions. 

Examples of possible employers are:  
  • Energy companies such as Vattenfall and Ørsted
  • Process engineering companies such as FLSmidth A/S, Babcock & Wilcox Vølund ApS
  • A wide range of producers of high efficiency energy devices such as Grundfos A/S Dantherm Power A/S
  • Counselling companies involved in energy technology and systems
