Energy PhD programme
The Energy programme is a multi-disciplinary doctoral programme aiming at solving future challenges in the energy area by means of developing new energy technologies leading to a more efficient and sustainable management of energy. It covers a broad range of energy-related topics focusing on the energy conversion process itself as well as generation, transmission, distribution and efficient use of energy are covered. Inherently it is involving various areas of both classical and new engineering sciences as well as basic research as the physical quantity “energy” and its provision and use spans broadly over almost all activities a modern society faces. Electrical, thermal, mechanical, hydraulics and control engineering sciences merge in various ratios with physics and chemistry to provide front-end knowledge enabling step by step solutions to help fulfilling the climate and emission goals set by international societies. The programme is highly experimentally oriented and offers state of the art laboratory facilities. Research cooperation with both Danish and international industries is strong as well as with world class academia.
The programme has hosted + 100 PhD’s for the last years and is graduating around 30 new energy PhD’s every year.
We continuous welcome guests at the department, either to support their PhD projects or general research.
PhD students at AAU Energy are required to pay a tuition fee of 120,000 DKK per year. Full or partial waivers can be granted on the basis of a documented request.
PhDs are working on their thesis.
PhD defences in average per year, is hosted at the department.
