Energy technology deals with the technologies required to provide and utilize energy in an environmentally friendly, efficient, safe, and economical way. The Master's degree program in Energy Engineering offers a research-oriented education that enables graduates to methodically classify and systematically combine knowledge from different areas and thus solve complex research and development tasks in the field of energy engineering.
The Master's degree program in Energy Engineering at TU Bergakademie Freiberg expands the general analytical and methodological skills acquired in the Bachelor's degree program in Energy Engineering (or a comparable degree program). No specialization has to be selected in the degree program, but students who have completed examinations amounting to at least 20 credit points from a compulsory elective complex will also receive an indication of a specialization on their certificate.
A team project is completed during the course of the study. The final Master's thesis is completed in the third semester.
Deals with the necessary technologies for and the management of transmission networks for the supply of electrical energy as well as its storage and utilisation for electromobility and drive technology
Intensifies the use of gas, especially natural gas, for energy supply in the form of heat
Includes energy supply from renewable sources such as sun, wind, water and geothermal energy and teaches modern technologies for hydrogen production and utilisation
