Why study Clean Energy and Process Technology?
The bachelor programme in Clean energy - and process technology has a base within chemistry and gives a broad knowledge within the field of process technology and chemical engineering. It focuses on energy efficiency in chemical processes, renewable energy systems, cleaning processes and sustainable use of energy and resources.
The programme gives students knowledge in design of energy efficient chemical processes and renewable energy systems. Software tool like the Aspen Hysys is used in design and optimization of processes. It is to some extent project based and uses project work in various courses.
What you will learn
The bachelor programme in Clean energy- and process technology will give you a basic knowledge in the field of chemical engineering and energy process technology.
You will aquire knowledge in designing and dimensioning process units and processes based on process flow diagrams. You will be able to identify and implement energy efficiency measures in chemical processes, and be able to use Aspen Hysys software programme in designing and optimizing processes.
You will get knowledge in designing renewable energy systems and energy processes.
Why study at USN?
We offer an informal and student friendly environment. Our campuses are small with an open-door policy where our staff dedicates time and attention to each student. We offer a safe living and study environment as well as a multicultural society where English is widely spoken. Our programmes are focused on practical study methods with a problem-based approach that should help students to prepare for real-life situations.
Further study opportunities
You will after completing the degree be qualified for positions in process industry, renewable energy industry, offshore work, health and safety work, engineering and consulting companies, public businesses, research, teaching, sales and marketing.
You will be qualified to apply for master programmes within the professional field both at USN (Master in Energy and Environmental Technology or Process Technology) and at other Norwegian and foreign universities. To apply to master programmes, you must choose Mathematics III as an elective subject in the fifth semester.
A course plan will give you a description of the academic content of the course and your learning outcome. You will find reading lists and relevant information on how each course is taught.
Admission requirementsThe programme is open to international exchange students studying at one of USN's bilateral partner institutions. Exchange students must have completed at least 60 ECTS or equivalent within the relevant study field, and be officially nominated by their home institution, to enroll. Admission to the programme requires a good command of the English language, both spoken and written. An English proficiency equivalent to B2 (Cambridge) level is recommended.
