New technologies such as electrical cars or renewable and ecological power supply systems require fundamental research in electrical (energy) engineering. DC grids (used in batteries, hydrogen systems, or to distribute and transport electrical energy in an environmentally friendly way with cable grids), electrical cars, and power electronics are the latest technologies aiming to provide a green and environmentally friendly energy supply. Introducing intelligence (SMART technology) into our power supply reduces costs as well as increases reliability and accessibility for the end consumer. In a nutshell, this program will educate the pioneers needed to make the electrical energy supply future-proof. They will be pioneering the future!
Students spend over 50% of class time in labs and skill practice classes, preparing them for hands-on application of their acquired theoretical knowledge. Additionally a strong cooperation with local industry enables our students to obtain real-world experience during their project work and internship. In Semester 3, students begin to focus on their specialty in their project work and continue to increase their competency while working on their Master thesis in Semester 4.
Students are also invited to join in R&D activities at the University. Electrical storage systems, PV systems, e-mobility, power electronics, high voltage and high current engineering, switching devices and lightning protection are a few examples of the areas of principle interest. Their modern high voltage and high current lab provides an optimal research environment, equipped with excellent diagnostic tools, including high speed cameras and plasma spectroscopy.
