The program provides the students with knowledge of production, transmission, conversion and efficient use of energy - with an emphasis of energy from renewable sources. Elective courses allow for a specialization in electrical or thermal energy engineering. The program also offers the students to elect more generic courses like control theory, project management or extra mathematics.
The program offers two specializations:
For both specializations, the teaching is based on the latest developments within the respective fields.
The students start pursuing the specialization of their choice in the 3rd semester. In the 5th semester, the students are offered a selection of relevant elective courses at UiA, or they spend the semester as exchange students at another institution.

The engineering education in Norway is regulated and supervised by the Ministry of Education and Research. The engineering education programme consists of general, technical and optional subjects including social-economic subjects. Social-economic subjects is a general term for subjects like economics, marketing, languages, communication, administration, leadership, management, law, ethics and environmental issues in a wide perspective. The content of the general subjects is prescribed by the former National Council for Engineering Education, while the technical, optional and social-economic subjects are designed by the faculty itself.
Ordinary lectures are optional, but many of the subjects taught entail compulsory exercises, field work and laboratory exercises. These have to be carried out satisfactorily before the candidate is allowed to sit the final exam. The schedule includes exercises and laboratory work in order to give all the students access to the equipment and/or assistance to complete the exercises. The students must expect to work more than the scheduled hours to complete the exercises to satisfaction. Assistant lecturers/student assistants may not be present during all the scheduled periods.
Estimated work-load for a full-time student one semester is 900 hours.
Regarding bachelor thesis: For every student/group there will be 5 compulsory meetings with guidance.
Upon completion, the candidates should be able to:
