Structure of the studies

The engineering course in energy technology is divided into three phases:

Before study

Before applying to Münster UAS, you will conclude a study contract with a company.

The department will be pleased to support you in selecting a suitable company. Please contact the dean's office. egufh-muensterde

In the study contract you make the individual arrangements with regard to remuneration, learning times at the university, practical phases in the company as well as vacation days.

1. Basic studies

1st and 2nd semester: Basics

  • Mathematical-scientific: mathematics, chemistry, physics, etc.
  • Engineering: Electrical engineering, materials science, construction elements, etc.

2. Advanced studies

3rd to 5th semester: Specialization in energy technology

  • Engineering science: control and regulation technology, refrigeration and heat pump technology, gas supply, electricity supply, energy plant construction, etc.
  • Interdisciplinary modules: Business administration, lecture on energy technology
  • Optional modules: Biomass, combined heat and power, mobility, energy storage, use of water and wind energy, etc.

3. Practical semester and graduation

7th semester: Practical semester and bachelor thesis.

Starting in the 7th semester, you will gain practical experience during  a minimum 20-week practical semester or semester abroad.

  • Afterwards, you will write your Bachelor's thesis.
  • And after successful completion, you will then bear the academic degree Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) as an engineer of energy engineering.

Good to know!!!

The basic studies are identical for all students of energy, building services and environmental engineering. They all study together. That's why you can change courses without any problems until the third semester, if you wish!

How to study

The energy, building and environmental technologies are based on a common foundation and pursue the same goal: the sustainable and efficient use of our resources.

Therefore, the Bachelor's programmes are interlinked.

Your studies are...


Energy technology is in mutual exchange with environmental and building technology. That is why the structure of the program offers our students the opportunity to think outside the box in their field of study. They not only learn to understand complex technical systems, but also to think in an interdisciplinary way.

Practice oriented

We train for practice. Many laboratory practicals, exercises and excursions, as well as the long practical phases in the company, ensure that you do not lose sight of the application of your knowledge.

Networking and Internationality

We are constantly working on cooperations with companies and universities. This way, you can expand your knowledge through practical time or a semester at another university - even abroad.

Research and transfer strength

Our students have their finger on the pulse because they benefit from the knowledge gained from our research projects. We develop application-oriented solutions to current problems.

You will learn in...


The necessary theoretical foundations will be presented and explained.


Case studies and tasks prepare you specifically for exams and practice


In our laboratories and experimental facilities, practice-oriented knowledge is imparted within the framework of field trials.


You will participate in exciting and educational field trips to various building-specific facilities.


There are a few prerequisites for enrolling in a dual energy engineering program:

University entrance qualification

In addition to the study contract with the company, you should have the Abitur or Fachabitur. Master craftswomen, master craftsmen and comparably qualified persons also have the possibility to study at university, but some prerequisites have to be fulfilled. In this case, please feel free to contact us and arrange a consultation appointment.


As a prerequisite for the program, you must have completed a 4-week internship. This should be in a technical or predominantly technical field. The internship must be proven by the beginning of the third semester. If you have completed vocational training, this can be recognized instead. You can also find out which professions are eligible for this in the file below.

And after the bachelor's degree?


As a Bachelor of Engineering, you have the opportunity to complete an advanced Master's degree.

The EGU department also offers you four different Master's programmes.

Career prospects

The demand for engineers in energy technology is constantly growing. On the job market, specialists and managers are in demand who are technically fit and are able to assess facts even in larger contexts. Our engineers are ideally suited for this due to their previous technical and scientific knowledge. Career prospects and pay are above average, and companies often recruit our graduates even before they graduate.

The employers of energy engineers are as diverse as the challenges they face. Here are some practical examples:

Reports from practice

We are always very interested in what happens to our graduates after their time at the EGU department. This is why some of our alumni report here about their way out of Steinfurt into the world of engineering.
