Energy Technology (M.Sc.)

The Master’s programme in Energy Technology is aimed at graduates of a Bachelor’s programme in engineering sciences in the field of energy process engineering, electrical engineering or materials science with the respective focus on energy technology who would like to deepen and expand their knowledge and skills in this field.

With us, you will not only acquire sound knowledge in the areas of energy generation, transmission and storage, but also in the topics of sustainability and environmental protection. You will learn how to develop and implement energy-efficient systems and technologies to help meet global challenges.

What is the degree program about?

The research-oriented, interdisciplinary Master’s degree program in Energy Technology has a standard duration of 4 semesters and builds consecutively on the Bachelor’s degree program. The courses of the Master’s program are divided into 5 compulsory modules and a broad catalog of compulsory elective and elective modules:

  • 5 compulsory modules
  • Module catalogs specific to the field of study: “Process Engineering of Energy Conversion” (VTE), “Electrical Energy Technology” (EET) and “Materials Science and Material Technology” (MWT). The courses are to be chosen within a field of study and give the student generous choices in putting together meaningful combinations of subjects.
  • Technical/Scientific and FAU-wide Elective Module Group. The elective modules suitably round off the Master’s program with freedom in the choice of subjects.

The module catalogs are completed by:

  • one advanced seminar
  • a laboratory practical course
  • an industrial internship
  • a master thesis with seminar presentation
