The Master´s Programme
Science and engineering are basic tools to achieve a sustainable development, also in domains like ecology, economics and society. The international Master's Sustainable Systems Engineering (SSE) provides an in-depth knowledge in fields like sustainable materials, energy systems (especially renewable energies), resilience, natural resources, sustainable economics, as well as technology and society. The successful completion of the Master's programme qualifies for a career in research, as well as head positions in industries of conventional and renewable energy, supply companies and infrastructure operators for mobility or energy.
The Master's programme in Sustainable Systems Engineering is designed for highly qualified graduate students holding a Bachelor‘s degree in engineering or science. As an SSE student, you will have the opportunity to:
- benefit from state-of-the-art equipment on a modern campus
- live in one of Germany’s most appealing cities
SSE is an interdisciplinary programme that builds on a basic knowledge in electrical and mechanical engineering and informatics. In the first year you will have compulsory courses in all areas which provide fundamental knowledge in sustainability engineering. From the second semester on you can specialise in two of three technical specialisation areas and select an interdisciplinary profile.
In order to find solutions for future challenges in the development of sustainable technologies, engineering research is necessary in the fields of energy, materials and resilience. Such a platform for research is formed by the newly founded INATECH, the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering. This institute unites and focuses the scientific power of the university and five Freiburg-based Fraunhofer Research Institutes. In this way INATECH and its partners offer a research-oriented Master's programme at the leading edge of science and engineering in sustainability. 14 freshly appointed professors and several hundred highly qualified scientists will contribute to teaching and training in SSE.
Founded in 1457, the University of Freiburg is one of the most renowned universities in Germany. Its Faculty of Engineering focuses on higher education and research in key technologies, such as sustainable engineering, microsystems engineering, embedded systems and computer science. It does not only explore new ways in research, but it also has been awarded various prizes for striving to implement new methods and technologies in the teaching process.
