The Master´s Programme
Science and engineering are basic tools to achieve sustainable development, not only in technology, but also in domains such as ecology, economics and society. The international Master's programme Sustainable Systems Engineering (SSE) provides in-depth knowledge in fields such as sustainable materials, energy systems, renewable energies, resilience, sustainable economy, as well as technology and society. The successful completion of the Master's programme qualifies for a further career in state-of-the-art and application-oriented research. Moreover, it will prepare graduates for leading positions in conventional and renewable energy companies as well as supply chain and infrastructure operators active in fields such as mobility or energy.
The Master's programme in SSE is designed for highly qualified graduate students holding a Bachelor‘s degree in engineering or science. An SSE student will have the opportunity to:
SSE is an interdisciplinary programme that builds on basic knowledge in electrical and mechanical engineering and informatics. In the first year, you will participate in compulsory courses in all areas which provide you with fundamental knowledge in sustainability engineering. From the second semester on you can specialise in two of three technical specialisation areas and select interdisciplinary profile modules.
Six mandatory modules:
The Institute of Sustainable Systems Engineering (Institut für Nachhaltige Technische Systeme - INATECH) was founded by the University of Freiburg in October 2015. The aim was to connect teaching and research in the field of sustainable systems and to complement the University with an engineering research facility for sustainability research. Together with the Institute of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) and the Institute of Computer Science (IIF) it builds the Faculty of Engineering.
In cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institutes in Freiburg, the following research emphases were conceptualized:
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.
