Energy Technology: Our Profile

The main focuses of this programme are:

  • Energy utilisation as a component in an energy system
  • Energy efficiency (for example, in industries and buildings)
  • Biofuels and their use
  • Renewable generation of electricity

Which courses are taught in English?

Although the programme is mainly delivered in Swedish, we can offer one year of exchange studies with courses taught in English during the latter part of the programme.

The following courses in the programme are taught in English. Period one begins at the start of the autumn semester:

Period 1 (Sep-Nov)

Renewable Power Generation, 7.5 credits 
Industrial Heat Technology, 7.5 credits

Period 2 (Nov-Jan)

Automation and Control Engineering, 7.5 credits

Period 3 (Jan-March)

Fluid Dynamics, 7.5 credits 
Resource Management and Environmental Impact, 5 credits
Energy Systems, 7.5 credits


From spring semester 2020, the two energy system courses above will be replaced by:
Energy Systems and their Resource Management and Environmental Impact, 10 credits (No syllabus at present).
Scientific Writing, 2.5 credits (No syllabus at present)

Period 4 (April-June)

Degree Thesis for Bachelor in Science in Engineering in Energy Technology, 15 credits
Exchange students who take the other programme courses taught in English can, upon agreement with the Programme Director, also take this thesis project course.

These courses total 57.5 credits, with more credits in period 3 than in 2.
To attain 60 credits (one year of full-time studies), you must take an optional course in period 2.

Study Environment

Dalarna University is a small university, which allows you to develop personal relationships with your classmates and teachers. You will study at Campus Borlänge, which is located in a town characterised by thriving business and industry, surrounded by nature and the charming Swedish countryside.

The town is two hours north of Stockholm and only 20 km away from the historic town of Falun, the political centre of Dalarna County. The town of Borlänge is home to some major Swedish corporations, such as SSAB and Borlänge Energi, and within a short commute to another large corporation, namely ABB.
