Education

A novel specialization in Battery Engineering within the framework of UiA’s renewable energy programmes (bachelor semester 3-6, master) is currently planned for launch in autumn 2023. This specialization will provide the facilities and curriculum needed to train excellent battery engineers.

Preliminary outlook for education as Battery Engineer at UiA.

The battery education at UiA will put special focus on electrochemistry, from basic thermodynamics of materials to the details of state-of-the-art battery simulation models, from battery cell investigations in the laboratory to advanced data analysis techniques on commercial battery datasets. Detailed knowledge of the theoretical fundamentals will always be accompanied with laboratory/hands-on courses that allow students to gain first-hand experience in the field.
