Master Program in Energy Engineering & Management (EEM)

"The energy transition is associated with many challenges, such as an increase in the efficiency of energy conversion systems based on renewable energies and their integration into future energy systems, requiring e.g. the development of capable energy storage systems and an intelligent demand side management. EEM covers all of these aspects and provides the skills to successfully face the challenges." - Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans-Jörg Bauer & Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mathias Noe

The master program, Energy Engineering & Management, is focused on professionals working in companies that deal with the generation, transportation, distribution, storage and sale of energy (electrical, thermal, etc.), their suppliers and industrial sectors that rely on energy heavily. Graduates of the program stand out due to an extensive overview on present and future technology for new energy systems. They are able to significantly participate in the successful introduction of new sustainable energy systems and to appraise not only the sustainability but also the aspects of operating efficiency, availability and safety as well and can evaluate them adequately.

Graduates can therefore understand, quantitatively describe, evaluate and optimize the elements of energy systems and their complex interactions. They are able to understand innovation processes and can effectively and successfully apply their knowledge either in existing companies or when founding “start-ups”. Professional, methodical, process and management knowledge is essential for this, as it is imparted in the modules of Energy Engineering & Management.

Additionally, internationalization and mobility are key factors of the master program since the energy sector operates internationally. This is emphasized by the cooperation with the Knowledge Innovation Centre InnoEnergy and therefore supports the aims of the European Union to achieve a climate neutral and sustainable energy supply. Furthermore, one result of the cooperation is an exchange module with the worldwide renowned business school ESADE in Barcelona/Spain.

In addition to the engineering expertise, Energy Engineering & Managment shares five management modules with the other master programs. This fosters networking across industries and provides the participants with general knowledge in finance, accounting, marketing, international multi-project management, international law, and human resource management. Therefore, they can consider the commercial implications of project decisions and develop a holistic view.
