This program focuses on the development, planning, construction and operation of energy generation systems, both conventional and innovative, as well as on the distribution and storage of energy in a variety of forms. This interdisciplinary degree program focuses on teaching fundamental knowledge and on practical application.
Students gain theoretical and practical expertise on handling different kinds of energy production systems and different forms of energy. After graduation, they are able to handle engineering tasks from these areas in an efficient and practical manner. This degree program requires students to have a strong interest in technology and to be prepared to intensively study theoretical fundamentals and work in a systematic manner. “Learning by doing” is a key element of the degree program. Because of this, the majority of coursework consists of internships completed at laboratories or working on real large-scale machinery and in an energy technology center.
Graduates will be qualified for a variety of careers in the energy technology field. In addition to beginning their careers, students can also continue to a Master's degree program.
Students must have an advanced technical college certificate, general higher education entrance qualification, or equivalent recognized qualification to be admitted to the program.
The program begins by building up fundamental mathematical and natural sciences and engineering expertise. Then, students can select their own focus area depending on their specific interests. The program also includes non-technical subject areas as well. Accompanying internships are completed in small groups at the university's laboratories, and are a key part of the degree. Finally, students complete a research project and a Bachelor’s thesis to implement what they have learned in practice in a regional company or university laboratory. The degree program uses a modular structure, and modules are reviewed frequently.
A ten-week internship must be completed by the end of the fourth semester. Appropriate technical training may be completed in place of the internship.
