As the global environment changes and new technologies evolve, energy management becomes a complex, fast-paced field, requiring new solutions to be delivered by highly skilled and appropriately trained individuals. This Master program “Energy Management” at TU-Campus EUREF in Berlin not only conveys the latest insights in energy management issues, but discusses toady’s challenges and prepares students for leading roles in shaping the industry, and society, for the future ahead
The master programme is taught in English so that it is attractive to international students and connects in-class teaching with eLearning methods (blended learning). The programme was developed in cooperation with transnational companies specialised in global energy management.
Advantages & Opportunities:
The program has been developed in close cooperation with leading enterprises, consultancies and regulatory authorities in the energy sector. The study location is the exciting EUREF-Campus where many industry leaders set up office and think tanks. Excursions to industrial outlets and companies further strengthen the link between theory and practise.
We are part of Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, which is one of Germany’s largest universities with currently more than 30,000 students. TU Berlin offers a wide range of support and extracurricular activities.
The program’s interdisciplinary content, which covers the political, economic, technical and legal aspects of the energy markets, gives students and future employees a distinctive profile and qualifies them for leading positions in the energy sector. Learning and studying in small groups of up to 30 students allows for individual and excellent learning conditions.
Subjects for master theses are top-notch research and often based on industry or government proposals. Skills and knowledge transferred in our course are in high demand in all energy related industries, so carreer opportunities for graduates are exceptional.
Management decisions in the energy sector require profound understanding of the sector’s technical, economic, legal, and entrepreneurial peculiarities. Climate change, economic changes, public opinion, technological progress and regulation shape and limit the entrepreneurial leeway, but also offer often unforseen chances and opportunities. The industry therefore requires broadly skilled individuals who are experts in the field.
The master program is taught over a period of three semesters. The first semester covers the technical, economic, entrepreneurial and legal foundations for management decisions in the energy sector; the second semester deepens this view and looks at business practises, primarily of grid-based utilities, and investment; the third semester broadens the view while simultaneously focusing on practise according to student’s individual interests. All semesters include lectures, tutorials, seminars as well as excursions, online materials related to practice and extracurricular activities. The master thesis due in the third semester concludes the program.
The internationally renowned Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) is located in Germany's capital city at the heart of Europe. The academic activities are focused on achieving sharply-defined goals: building a distinctive profile for our university, ensuring exceptional performance in research and teaching, providing our graduates with excellent qualifications and a modern approach to university administration.
The TUB strives to promote the dissemination of knowledge and to facilitate technological progress through adherence to the core principles of excellence and quality. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry are an important aspect in these endeavours.
TUB is an internationally renowned research-intensive university dedicated to promoting science and technology for the benefit of broader society and committed to the principle of sustainability. The challenges and problems facing modern societies cannot be met on the basis of findings from individual disciplines. TUB is addressing these challenges with the aid of transdisciplinary collaborative projects. The establishment of important research partnerships in the context of the Excellence Initiative, the German Research Foundation (DFG) and European Institute for Innovation and Technology, in addition to constantly increasing third-party funding for the research projects, demonstrate the dynamic developments in this area.
Prestigious science prizes and awards make these successes even more obvious; these include Alexander von Humboldt Chairs, Einstein Chairs, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prizes, and numerous grants from the European Research Council. Research for Innovation - a credo that TUB impressively implements. Its extraordinary profile as a technical university in association with its humanities, social, planning and economic sciences programs is indeed an excellent breeding ground for strong interdisciplinarity. By combining basic and applied research endeavours, and with close links to partners in science and industry, university researchers tackle societal issues and develop forward-looking solutions.
