Managing the future
Pipelines, power plants, wind turbines, and solar collectors, biogas plants or combined heat and power units? Environmental protection, resource depletion and new technologies play a major role in planning how energy can be optimally provided and used, how new technologies can be integrated into existing structures and markets, and how the resulting changes in the energy supply industry can be managed. These are decisive issues for our everyday life – already today and even more so for the generations to come.
Energy Engineering and Resource Optimization offers a broad education with technical and interdisciplinary contents for young executives-to-be, who will tread new paths with their vision and creativity, their networked thinking as well as a willingness to make changes. Whether in building services engineering, for energy facilities and infrastructural systems or in the field of regenerative energies, in combination with modern communication and information technologies, engineers develop innovative, intelligent and efficient supply systems.
The degree course
The study program imparts fundamentals of natural sciences with an interdisciplinary approach and directly relates them to the application. Practical modules, a practical semester and project work prepare the students for their professional life.
Major fields of study:
- Energy Systems and Infrastructure
- Renewable Energies
- Building Services Engineering
- Energy Informatics
With a Bachelor degree, a wide variety of career prospects is available in the energy management of utility companies or energy service providers, in various public sectors, in consulting companies, planning offices or in the science sector.
