The improvement of the efficiency of existing technologies and the development of new technologies relevant for energy engineering represent the major pillars required for a forward looking energy supply. In this context, sector coupling, environmental compatibility and sustainability are of central significance.

A well-founded knowledge of existing and future oriented technologies, the ability to analyse, model and simulate systems as well as interdisciplinary thinking are among the most important skills that aspiring energy engineers should have.

In this postgraduate course students learn to view complex energy systems systematically, develop these according to specific requirements and take the right steps for the efficient operation of facilities. A well-grounded education includes the acquisition of technological knowledge, systems modelling and simulation as well as procedure planning for projects and efficiency considerations.

Students can deepen their theoretical knowledge in practical applications by assisting in research projects.
