Technical Building Equipment and Supply Engineering (B.Eng.)

How can we turn buildings into smart buildings in the future? How do we intelligently develop urban supply networks? How can energy, water, electricity and heat be connected? The transformation of energy systems presents us with the challenge of developing innovative and networked building and supply technology that will have a lasting change on our lives. Engineers in this field are actively helping to shape the future of this field.

structure of the studies

The Bachelor's programme comprises 7 semesters. In the first three semesters of the programme, the focus is primarily on the fundamentals of science and basic technical knowledge. This training section is supplemented by subjects in which the business and legal knowledge essential for engineers is imparted. Computer science training also belongs to this study section.

In the higher semesters, the course of study has a stronger subject-specific orientation. The core subjects of supply engineering (heating technology, air conditioning technology, etc.) are the focus here as compulsory subjects. This range of subjects is supplemented by elective modules (technical English, lighting technology, etc.). Students select compulsory elective modules themselves, whereby examinations must be taken in a certain number of these subjects. Within the framework of these compulsory elective modules, courses of other courses of study at the Trier University of Applied Sciences or other universities can also be attended.

The 5th semester is a practical semester in which the students apply their skills acquired up to then for the first time in a building services engineering or supply engineering company. Instead of the practical semester, a study semester at a foreign university is also possible. To this end, a cooperation agreement has been concluded with the bachelor's programme in Energy and Environment at the University of Luxembourg. With the introduction of the practical semester, the previous obligatory pre-study internship was dispensed with.

In the 7th semester, the degree course is completed with a Bachelor's thesis, most of which is already being written outside the university in a company specialising in supply engineering or building services engineering. The final thesis lasts from 6 to 10 weeks. With this thesis, the students prove that they are able to successfully solve a technical problem within a given period of time independently with scientific means.

Building on their studies, the Trier University of Applied Sciences offers a Master's programme in Energymanagement. This practice-oriented course of studies enables students to hold management positions in business and to pursue a career in the higher public sector.

admission requirements
  • General qualification for university entrance,

  • Technical college entrance qualification,

  • Master craftsman training or

  • Professional qualification with qualified result and subsequent two years of professional experience.

    In principle, the admission requirement is the higher education entrance qualification according to §65 Abs. 1 und 2 HochSchG or a higher education entrance qualification recognised as equivalent by the competent state authorities.


applications and enrolment

Enrolment is possible for both the winter semester and the summer semester. If you enrol for the summer semester, the first semester serves as an orientation semester. Bridge courses are offered for all basic subjects in order to compensate for school-specific differences.

The registration takes place in the application portal

Application for students of higher semesters

Of course, the general admission requirements must also be fulfilled for applications for higher semesters. The department decides on the placement in the respective semester on the basis of the achievements at the previous university.

Application for a second degree

A second course of studies is given if a first course of studies has already been successfully completed. In this case, the application must be accompanied by a certified copy of the degree certificate and, in the case of N.C. degree programmes, a justification of the second degree course desired.
