The energy supply of mankind faces a great challenge: In order to protect the climate, all current fossil fuels must be replaced by renewable energy sources. This applies not only to the electricity sector, but also to the heat, mobility and industrial sectors. To ensure that this happens without any losses, the Energy Technologies degree program looks at the overall system before, during and after the energy turnaround. In addition to new technologies, efficiency enhancements and sector coupling are also at the forefront.
Based on the fundamentals of engineering science, the various aspects and problems of the energy system transformation are examined in detail in in-depth subjects, starting with the mathematical-scientific and engineering fundamentals in the first two semesters. On this basis the energy-technical basics in the electrical, mechanical and thermodynamic area build up in the following three semesters. In this way, students become familiar with conventional power plants, electrical machines, the functioning of electrical energy supply and the legal and economic fundamentals. The curriculum is supplemented by a compulsory elective area, in which students can put their own emphasis on in-depth lectures and internships. The course is completed with an industrial internship and the bachelor thesis as independent scientific work.
