Reliable energy supply is vital
In everyday life we expect sufficient electricity whenever we want it. We take it for granted that our household appliances, lights and heating function.
For the economy reliable energy supply is vital, though the environment should not be disregarded. Energy generation, transfer and distribution should be conducted in a resource-conserving manner.
Career fields and opportunities
Important future areas of operation in power engineering will be developed in electromobility and research.
Our graduates, whether Bachelor or Master, have excellent career prospects in fascinating and developing fields of work, which will be important for our future.
Our students can expect a multifaceted study programme. They acquire knowledge and skills in:
- economical handling of energy through efficient energy management
- the field of renewable energies
- classic energy engineering fields such as high voltage technology and electric motors.
Graduates find work in:
- energy generation in power plants
- research for energy storage options
- provision of renewable energy systems
- grid operations
- development of drives, especially for e-mobility
Benefits for international students
As the programme starts in English, many international applicants who do not have good German skills can start their engineering studies on this programme.
German training is a vital component of the curriculum, not just during but also between the semesters in the form of three-week intensive courses. A three-week intensive language and culture programme directly before the start of the first semester provides a valuable start to learning German and helps new international students settle in. Students study towards passing the DSH (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang ausländischer Studienbewerber)
Benefits for German students
English competence is a much sought after skill in the engineering sector, and German students can gain vital experience by studying in English for their first year. German native speakers need to choose a technical English and another non-engineering elective.
