The use of energy has been a key in the development of the human society by helping it to control and adapt to the environment. Managing the use of energy is inevitable in any functional society. In the industrialized world the development of energy resources has become essential for agriculture, transportation, waste collection, information technology, communications that have become prerequisites of a developed society. The increasing use of energy has also brought with it a number of serious problems, some of which, such as global warming, present potentially grave risks to the world.
In the near future, more than seven billion people worldwide will need to be supplied with energy. Industry and Universities are challenged to develop innovative concepts for a safe, economically efficient, sustainable and environmental friendly energy supply.
Consumption of energy requires resources and has typically an effect on the environment. Many electric power plants burn coal, oil or natural gas in order to generate electricity for energy needs. While burning these fossil fuels produces a readily available and instantaneous supply of electricity, it also generates air pollutants and increases global warming by emission of CO2.
The large-scale use of renewable energy technologies could mitigate or eliminate a wide range of environmental and human health impacts of energy use and support a long term sustainable energy availability. Renewable energy technologies include biofuels, solar heating and cooling, hydroelectric power, solar power, water- and wind power.
Since the sustainable availability of energy has become a significant factor in the performance of economy of societies, management of energy resources has become very crucial. Energy management involves utilizing the available energy resources more effectively that is with minimum incremental costs. Many times it is possible to save energy without incorporating fresh technology by simple management techniques. Most often energy management is the practice of using energy more efficiently by eliminating energy wastage or to balance justifiable energy demand with appropriate energy supply.
The Master - Program Energy Engineering & Management at HECTOR School of Engineering and Management is part of the Knowledge Innovation Centre InnoEnergy and therefore supports the aims of the European Union to achieve a climate-neutral and sustainable Energy supply.

At the International Department we believe that it is beneficial for all course participants to have close working relationships with exceptional German and international companies. The International Department can aid its participants in establishing these relationships as it is in the unique position of having top-level executives from leading German companies on its Board of Directors. Relationships can also be established as participants are sponsored by a range of international companies. It is expected that the majority of the Executive Master participants will be corporately sponsored either partly or fully. Therefore, in order to assist candidates in their application for sponsorship we have developed a business case for studying an Executive Master of Science at the Hector School.
The International Department also offers a very limited number of scholarships, covering full or part tuition costs. This is an outstanding opportunity for exceptional candidates who wish to be self-subsidised. It is essential that scholarship applicants are likely to be among the best on the course and have high potential for success after completing the program and leaving the Hector School.
The Master Program is accredited by the ASIIN (www.asiin.de) since 2005.
You are normally required to take an English Proficiency Test.
