5 good reasons

  • Study hands-on: with a wind turbine and solar panels on campus

  • Choose from three exciting majors ranging from engineering to economy

  • Complete a vocational training alongside your studies and become an electronics engineer

  • Spend a semester abroad

  • Reduce the duration of your master’s in vocational education

It's a match if

  • You’re interested in energy and the climate

  • You’re curious about technology or economics (or both)

  • You’re not scared of maths

  • You love natural sciences

  • You enjoy working with others

What it’s about

Energy supply, energy transition, renewable, sustainable and green energy – there is a lot to do in this field and skilled professionals are desperately sought-for. Technical questions need to be answered as well as economic ones; now and in the future.

Course structure & majors

The focus of the first three semesters of your studies will be to acquire a solid foundation in maths and sciences, in engineering and economics.

In the third semester you will choose your major and specialise in where your strengths and interests lie. These are the three majors:

  • Electrical Energy Systems Engineering
  • Energy and Environmental Management
  • Renewable Energy Engineering

From the fourth semester on you can pick electives to specialise even further. What interests you most? „Simulation of Electrical Systems“, „Photovoltaics and Fuel Cells“, „Environmental Protection and Management“ or one of the many other electives?

In the seventh semester of the programme you complete an internship and write your bachelor’s thesis.


Electrical Energy Systems Engineering

If you choose this major, you’re making electrical energy engineering your specialty. You’ll be an expert in electrical energy systems and components and we will teach you how electrical energy can be converted, stored and distributed. You will learn methods to design, plan and develop plants and products.

Energy and Environmental Management

If you think the economic aspects of the energy sector are just as exciting as the technical ones, this is your major. You’ll learn more about the energy industry and we will teach you to understand engineers as well as economists. We’ll make you familiar with business as well as with environmental engineering.

Renewable Energy Engineering

You love engineering but you don’t want to focus too much on details and individual components? You want to look at the big picture? In this major you will study mechanical and electrical engineering - in theory but also, and mainly, in practice. We will show you how to use the whole spectrum of renewable energy to find environmentally feasible and sustainable answers to the energy supply questions of the future.

Future prospects

You want to continue your studies?

Then you should have a look at our master’s degree programme Wind Energy Engineering! Or maybe in the master’s degree programme in Energy and Environmental Management which we offer in cooperation with Europa-Universität Flensburg.

If your major is Electrical Energy Systems Engineering and you completed the “Vocational Education” modules, you can study to become a teacher at vocational schools and make it your job to train future professionals. If you enrol in the master’s degree programme “Vocational Education” at Europa-Universität Flensburg here in campus, you can shorten your studies by half a semester.

You want to work?

Our graduates mainly work in these areas:

  • Energy and environmental engineering
  • Consulting for energy and climate politics
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering and the automotive industry
  • University and public authorities

Their job titles are:

  • Project engineer
  • Consultant for energy or international climate politics
  • Certification expert
  • Site manager
  • Academic staff

Oh, and we also got this answer: More than half of our former students have met their future employer during their studies; 90% had found a job in less than three months after graduating.

How do I apply?

If what you have rad so far matches your strengths, interests and your idea of what you would like to study and do - in short, if this sounds like the perfect degree programme for you, you should apply.

Depending on whether you have acquired your university entrance qualification in Germany or abroad, the application process varies. If you went to school outside Germany, please apply via uni-assist. If your university entrance qualification was issued by a German school, please apply via our Online Service Tool.
