Energy Management (M.Eng.)

In recent years, the global consequences of climate change and the rapidly rising cost of energy resources have brought energy management to the forefront of discussions about environmental protection and energy supply. Comprehensive changes are needed in order to achieve the objectives of the Federal Government and the states with regard to a sustainable, renewable and efficient energy supply. The challenges of implementing the energy system transformation are creating a need for highly qualified engineers who can plan and operate particularly efficient energy supply systems while taking technical, economic and ecological aspects into account. 

The innovative Masters programme Energy Management imparts in-depth, professionally qualifying knowledge beyond the basic curriculum that is required to cope with the challenges of today's and tomorrow's energy supply.

career prospects

Engineers in the field of energy management have excellent career prospects. As sought-after experts, they work in various areas of the energy sector, the industry and research. E.g.:

  • planning offices for supply energy and environment engineering 
  • project development
  • producers of technical supply systems
  • energy supplier and service provider 
  • network operators
  • energy-intensive companies
  • consulting companies
  • authorities and associations
  • and many more

Thanks to decentralisation and digitalisation the number and types of jobs are incresing. 

structure of studies

Modular structure
Students can chose between various elective subjects, according to their personal or professional interests.

  • the Bachelor/Diploma degree should be in the field of engineering, industrial engineering, sciences or technical
  • relevant practical experience of at least 5 months
    • a Bachelor degree with at least 210 ETCS credits, including a practical semester will be recognised as a relevant practical experience. The same applies to practical phase with a duration of at least 20 weeks if they were done in the fifth semester or higher
    •  a Bachelor degree with 180 ETCS credits qualifies for this master programme if a relevant practical experience is done extra-curricular
  • sufficient knowledge of German
