The Master’s program in Energy Science and Engineering

The program is designed for 4-semester full-time studies – it is set up modularly and grants 120 credit points. The first semester comprises a number of required courses offered to establish the knowledge base that students have not yet acquired from their Bachelor’s studies. Those modules are specifically designed for the program Energy Science and Engineering. The following courses, worth five credits each, will be offered as required courses in the first semester:

  • Renewable Energies, Energy Scenarios and Climate Protection
  • Energy Technologies in Civil Engineering and Architecture
  • Energy Technologies in Mechanical Engineering
  • Materials Science for Renewable Energy Systems
  • Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
  • Chemistry for Energy Scientists and Engineers
  • Fundamental Law, Economics and Social Science Aspects of Energy Supply and Energy Consumption

4-semester full-time program

120 credit points

Start: in the winter term

Registration deadline: July 15

Competence in both English (C1) and German (DSH-2) languages is an additional admission requirement.

In the major subjects chosen by the students individually, technical knowledge and methods of the relevant work field will be extended. Those skills form the basis for the development and application of independent ideas that will be implemented in the Master’s thesis.

Students can choose from the following list of subjects, see ‘examination regulations’ (Prüfungsordnung), pp.10-13:

  • Energy efficient construction
  • Infrastructure
  • Renewable energy
  • Electrical energy
  • Power plant technology
  • Nuclear technology
  • Energy materials

The modules offered in the optional compulsory curriculum are listed in the 'course and examination program' ('Studien- und Prüfungsplan':Documents and Forms).

Students have the possibility to choose electives from the fields of economy, law, and humanities or to study languages.

Further details about the program are available in the ‘course information’ (Studieninformation).
