Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)Energy Systems and Energy Management
The Master’s programme in Energy Management and Energy Systems trains you to become an expert in sustainable energy supply. With your Master of Engineering degree, you will make an important contribution to the energy transition at the interfaces of buildings, commerce, industry and public grids. You develop innovative solutions for the generation of electricity, heat and the decentralisation of energy supply markets.
The content of the study programme considers all relevant contents involving the subject of “Intelligent Energy Management”.
In two projects, you demonstrate your competence in applying contents in practice. In the third semester, you will delve into a scientific topic in your Master’s thesis, either in a company or at the university.
With the Master of Engineering, you have excellent career prospects in all areas of the energy industry. The important sector of the economy has a high demand for well-trained professionals to find solutions to the major challenges: for example, the decentralisation of energy generation, the increase in renewable energies or the task of linking electricity, heating, cooling and mobility across sectors.
