Our research is oriented towards sustainable development and aims to improve resource efficiency, decrease environmental impact, and increase the use of renewable energies within society. Our research specialisation includes fields of study such as solar energy technology, energy conversion, energy efficiency in the built environment, forest cultivation systems and the utilisation of forestry resources for bio energy and timber construction.

Our research is characterised by regional and international collaboration, as well as collaboration with local businesses and public-sector organisations.

Main Fields of Research Specialisation


At the undergraduate level, the University offers three related bachelor's programmes: Construction Engineering (Byggteknik), Energy Engineering (Högskoleingenjörsprogram), and Urban and Regional Planning (Bygg- och samhällsplenerarprogram). These programmes are taught in Swedish.

At the graduate level, we offer three related international programmes: the One-Year Master's in Energy Efficient Built Environment, the One-Year Master's in Solar Energy Engineering and the Two-Year Master's in Solar Energy Engineering. These programmes are taught in English.

As a result of our research cooperation with doctoral programmes, the Swedish REESBE and the European SHINE, we also frequently host and supervise Ph.D. students.

You can read more about these programmes on our Research Schools webpage.
