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.
"HSHL students join our company as interns on a regular basis. Our experience has always been a very positive one. Due to their technical skills, resourcefulness and dynamism, the students were a real asset to our team each time and were able to initiate and participate in exciting new projects.
From the assessment of new solar installations during an excursion in the out islands of Fiji to the participation in the start of a new business line in independent testing of solar facilities and the development of high quality materials for our renewable energy training courses – the students were able to get involved in various areas in a productive way and gain invaluable experiences."
