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.
