Energy Systems and Energy Management (M.Eng.)

General Information

General information

This Master’s programme takes into account the current and future demands of the transition to renewable energies. The increasing decentralisation of energy generation, the increase in fluctuating renewable energies, and the task of coupling electricity, heating, cooling and mobility across all sectors represents a great challenge for intelligent energy management. The programme has its roots in building services engineering and focuses on the interfaces between building, trade and industry and the public utility electricity, gas and district heating network and the network-oriented operation of the systems.

Subjects covered include project management and business management, energy and heating technology with renewable, centralised and decentralised energy supplies through to plant simulation, automation systems, process management and facility management. Further emphasis is placed on energy management and energy sources of the future. This material is supplemented by independent study and the presentation of two pieces of project work from the subjects covered. In the third semester, students must write a Master’s thesis which deals with and consolidates knowledge of a scientific topic; the work can be done either in an industrial company or at the university.
