Managing the use of energy is crucial to industrial societies. The increasing use of energy has been associated with a number of serious problems, some of which, represent major global hazards, e.g. global warming.
Graduates of the Energy Engineering and Management (EEM) master program have acquired a comprehensive overview of present and future energy systems and their elements. They are capable of participating in the successful introduction of new sustainable energy systems. They are not only able to rate the sustainability, but can also consider the energy systems' operating efficiency, availability and safety in a appropriate way.
The graduates are able to understand innovation processes and can effectively and successfully apply their knowledge either at existing companies or at start-ups established by them. This requires the professional, methodological, process, and management knowledge conveyed by the modules of Energy Engineering & Management (EEM). Internationalization and mobility are key features of this Master Program.
The executive master program conveys up-to-date know-how of energy technology and management skills to engineers who aim for executive positions in energy industry. The course program focuses on basic processes of energy generation and conversion, renewable energies, and the management of energy grids.
The technical subjects are complemented by management modules to enhance the students’ ability to evaluate and develop the innovative processes of the energy industry. Of course, emphasis is placed on environmentally friendly and innovative methods to generate and distribute energy.
5 Management Modules (MM) form the basis of all programs and provide basic knowledge in Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Project and HR Management as well as Law, so they can consider commercial consequences of business decisions.
The engineering emphasis of the program is taught in 5 additional Engineering Modules (EM) with specialization in Energy Engineering.
