Requirements and enrollment

Admissions restrictions No local entrance restrictions
Pre-study placementProof of a practical activity (practical phase) of at least 12 weeks' duration, which has already familiarized you with relevant specialist tasks.

The practical phase must always be completed before starting the degree course and proof of this must be provided when enrolling.
Additional entrance requirements

The prerequisite for admission is a first professionally qualifying university degree in a technical, engineering or predominantly engineering course in the field of energy technology, building services engineering or environmental engineering or related fields with an overall grade of at least "good" (2.5).

If the overall grade of your first university degree is lower than 2.5, the qualified degree can exceptionally also be proven by particularly qualified performance in the professional activity after the first professionally qualifying university degree.


Language requirements:

Detailed description of the degree programme

Expertise in climate-neutral energy supply. Electricity, heating, cooling, compressed air or process steam, grids and storage. The energy transition needs people who understand complex systems.


The Master´s degree course in Energy Technologies will enable you to transform our energy supply. You will understand the energy markets and gain an overview of networked energy systems and their components and interactions. With in-depth specialist knowledge and scientific methodological skills, you will actively contribute to building up know-how in your company, work conceptually and think beyond the normative approach.

Occupational fields

Our Master´s graduates

  • manage large projects at energy suppliers or grid operators,
  • integrate components for system providers,
  • design energy supply concepts for municipalities or companies,
  • develop concepts and models in research institutions
  • or scenarios in authorities, ministries or for the EU.

The Master´s degree in Energy Technologies (M.Eng.) enables you to pursue a career in the higher civil service in Germany and is a formal prerequisite for a doctorate.

Specialization Technical Management

You also have the opportunity to choose the specialization "Technical Management". To do this, you must take and successfully complete a total of six elective modules, which are marked with "TM" in the list of elective modules. The "Technical Management" specialization and the associated modules will then be shown separately on your degree certificate.

Study program

The study program will be held in German.
The course can be started in the summer or winter semester. It is divided into three or five semesters of study (full-time or part-time) and one semester for the Master´s thesis.
Lectures take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (planned).
