To ensure adequate and human living conditions for the world’s growing population, a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy supply is one of the most important basis of today’s society. However, various challenges of the 21st Century such as increasingly scarce resources, climate change and growing energy needs consequently lead to the structural change of the global energy system.
The Energy Engineering Master's program at the University of Stuttgart educates students to respond to those challenges by finding solutions and solving complex tasks in the field of energy technologies and energy management thus participating in developing and shaping the future of a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy system.
The concept of the Master’s program provides students with utmost flexibility to develop their own individual profile within the energy sector. By choosing out of a broad catalogue of subject areas, students specialize in energy technology, materials science as well as in interdisciplinary fields such as environmental engineering, modelling and simulation, or energy management and energy systems. Moreover, graduates are qualified for project management in the construction, conversion and operation of primary energy systems/plants and are trained to work on issues related to technological development, building energetics, energy economics and power saving. Individually developed skills of the M.Sc. Energy Technology students also meet the diverse requirements of the energy sector in fields such as marketing, project management and R&D.
Graduates work in worldwide operating energy companies, small and medium-sized businesses or in engineering offices. Additionally, they act as energy consultants or work for public services and authorities.
Every year, up to five students are offered to participate in the Double Master’s programme “ Sustainable Energy Systems” with the Chalmers University Gothenburg, Sweden, thus putting an international focus on their studies. The first two semesters are completed at the University of Stuttgart, semesters 3 and 4 at the Chalmers University in Gothenburg. After they have successfully completed their studies, students receive their Master’s certificate from both universities.
