Clean Energy Process

Clean Energy Process (B.Sc.)

Do you want to learn how to stop climate change and how to drive the energy transition through new technologies and processes? Then the Clean Energy Processes degree program is a perfect fit for you! The English-language program not only allows you to study in small groups with students from all over the world, but also to benefit from a highly research and practice-oriented environment. In particular, you can expect content from the fields of engineering, technology and natural sciences, especially chemistry, as well as from related engineering disciplines. A wide range of exciting career opportunities are open to our graduates.

What is the degree program about?

The innovative Bachelor’s degree program Clean Energy Processes provides students with a comprehensive understanding of ecofriendly energy and sustainable energy processes. Today, engineers are required to be able to work on questions of energy change and to find the necessary solutions for a sustainable future for the planet.

The unique course (introduced in winter semester 2021/22) imparts knowledge from the fields of engineering, technology, natural sciences, and related engineering disciplines. The topics of the future in energy supply and storage, such as hydrogen and environmentally-friendly fuel cells, are covered. Knowledge from other fields such as economics, ethics and sustainability is integrated in the curriculum to consider all important aspects of the topic. Our students benefit from an international and research-oriented environment that is second to none. English as the language of instruction prepares students to work in international teams and provides them with the vocabulary needed for challenging jobs in industry or research.

Students will have the possibility to develop and obtain knowledge on cutting-edge research in energy processes done by the Helmholtz Institute for Renewable Energies and other relevant institutes situated at or in close proximity to FAU (e.g. Energy Campus Nürnberg, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research e.V.).
