Energy technology

Study concept

Energy technology deals with the technologies required to provide, distribute and utilise electrical energy, heat or another form of energy in an environmentally friendly, efficient, safe, economical and future-oriented manner. In addition to advanced lectures on thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, decentralised and regenerative energy generation, energy storage and efficient combustion technology are also covered. Supplementary courses on simulation methods and energy economics specialise graduates in solving future problems in the energy sector.

Extensive practical experience is gained through the following coursework: a six-week basic internship, two field trips, a student research project and a 14-week internship in an industrial company or a research institution outside the university. A wide range of placements are available in Germany and abroad. The results of the specialist internship are summarised in the Bachelor's thesis.

Please note that the Bachelor's degree course in Energy Engineering is not an independent degree course, but one of six possible sub-courses of the innovative Bachelor's degree course in Engineering. For you, this means:

  • the greatest possible flexibility in choosing your engineering specialisation
  • excellent study options and
  • the opportunity to join suitable Master's degree programs directly at TUBAF - such as the Master's in Energy Engineering!

Job opportunities

Graduates of the Bachelor's degree program in Energy Technology typically work

  • for operators of wind, hydro or solar power plants,
  • for energy supply companies and
  • for regulatory authorities in the field of energy supply.

Information on the basic internship

A 6-week basic internship is required for this degree program (30 working days). Completion or partial completion before the degree program (after the Abitur) is recommended. The internship can also be completed during the degree program. Requirements for the basic internship can be found in the adjacent download. Dr Dög will be happy to answer any questions you may have (see the box on the right "Specialist advice").
