The Energy Science course provides an interdisciplinary overview of the current state of research on energy conversion and storage as well as a general overview of the associated technologies and their sustainability. In order to anchor this knowledge, students acquire comprehensive knowledge of physics and chemistry. The graduates should also have experienced the international dimension of the energy topic in order to be able to make responsible decisions in professional life.
The course offers a wide range of basic training and addresses the following topics:
- Scientific basics of the provision of usable energy: fossil fuels, nuclear energy, solar energy, wind energy, regenerative energy technology, residual heat, energy-relevant materials
- Energy Management: Energy Efficiency, Energy Transport, Energy Storage, Sustainability
- Energy and society: environmental compatibility, economic efficiency, social acceptance
It is envisaged that students will spend the third year of their studies at a partner university. The language of study in the third and fourth year is English. The partner universities are: Hongkong Baptist University, Norwegian University of Science and Technology – Trondheim, Budapest University of Technology and Economics and Technical University Eindhoven, more partnerships are being formed.
