New Frontiers of Research and Innovations in Energy and Environmental Engineering

Publicerad 2021-11-11

Om uppdragsgivaren
At Mälardalen University people meet who want to develop themselves and the future. We have 19 900 students reading courses and study programs in Business and Economics, Health, Engineering and Education at our campuses in Eskilstuna and Västerås, or by distance. We conduct research within all fields of education and have internationally prominent research in Future Energy. Our close collaboration with the private and public sectors enables us at MDH to contribute towards the better health of people and towards a more sustainable planet. To strengthen Sweden as an education and research country, the Government is to upgrade Mälardalen University College to Mälardalen University from 1 January 2022. At the School of Business, Society and Engineering our students are studying to be for example Bachelors or Masters of Engineering, political scientists, and business administrators. Here we have the research specializations of Industrial Engineering and Management and Future Energy. Our work takes place in cooperation with and in strategic agreements with companies, organizations, and public authorities in the region.

Beskrivning av examensarbetet
Today´s world brings great challenges in both energy and environmental engineering fields. We strive to develop sustainable and resilient solutions, including processes and systems focusing on renewable energy and improving resource efficiency with a neutral carbon footprint. To achieve that, we continuously seek new directions in research and focus on innovations. We need to utilize the best from recent developments and advances in digitalization e.g., increasing availability of computational power, sensor technology miniaturization, etc. and new scientific disciplines. Frontiers are defined as "the most advanced or recent ideas about something" and "the farthermost limits of knowledge or achievement in a particular subject."

Proposed tasks
This thesis project aims to identify, comprehensively review and analyze the frontiers of research and innovations in the energy engineering field, considering technical, economic, and social aspects. The source information will be mainly recent scientific and newspaper articles and reports. The work should include a future-oriented SWOT analysis of selected frontiers that identifies strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats
A particular emphasis of the student work needs to be meeting requirements for the Energy Engineering Degree project, i.e., to meet learning outcomes.
The project is suitable for both Master´s 30 hp and Bachelor´s 15 hp thesis works and can accommodate up to 2 students.
