Renewable energy sources have long since made the leap out of their niche. But despite the innovative and sustainable technologies available, progress is not fast enough to achieve our climate protection goals. For a successful energy transition, we must continue to intensify our efforts. We cannot postpone the necessary steps any longer – it is high time we acted decisively. The course content reflects the holistic approach and is based on the current challenges in the sustainable expansion of energy supply systems. This up-to-date course gives you access to the world of modern energy technology development and current research.

The “Applied Energy Technology” course is a further development of the content of the renowned “Eco Energy Technology” course that was offered until 2018.

The master’s degree in “Applied Energy Technology” offers a fundamental in-depth study of topics relating to conversion, distribution and the optimized, environmentally friendly use of energy in systems and buildings. With the focus on “solar technology” or “building optimization”, there is a special focus on the functionality, planning, construction and operation of energy-related systems and buildings. Project-oriented learning ensures immediate implementation and practical relevance and opens up the possibility of setting additional individual priorities.

Double Degree: An Austrian-French double degree is possible in cooperation with INSA Strasbourg.

Programme structure
