General Information:

This degree programme is about the sustainable use of energy and the utilization of energy sources that are replenished as they are used, such as wind, water, the sun and sustainably grown crops. This type of energy is almost inexhaustible and far more efficient than fossil fuels, guaranteeing climate protection and the preservation of natural resources. The programme provides the know-how required to develop and optimise environmentally friendly technologies for the generations of tomorrow. Given the importance of environmentally friendly technologies in virtually any field of industry, graduates enjoy excellent career prospects and a high employability rate.
