Course content

Focus on management

One of few degree programmes in the area of renewable energy with a focus on technology and economics. Around two thirds of the programme focus on management competencies (energy sector, law and political aspects), while the other third addresses technical fundamentals for positions in the energy sector.

Close to practice

This degree programme is developed to be very much practice-oriented, thanks to close involvement of companies in the sector. During the entire fifth semester, all students work in an energy-sector company of their choice.

International qualities

Various modules offer students the opportunity to qualify for positions on an international level.

Courses on all renewable energy resources

All renewable energy resources will have a place in the energy mix of the future. This is why it is exceedingly important to look at the ‘energy world of the future’ in all its versatility and totality, from renewable energy production, over further processing (e.g. hydrogen) and storage, to end consumption. Innovative topics, such as digitisation in general or development of electric mobility in particular, also play a major part in this.
