Study overview

In February 2013, the master’s programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology was successfully accredited for the first time and was awarded the seal of quality of the Accreditation Council by the ACQUIN agency. This accreditation established the high academic standard of the master's programme and documented the international comparability of the degree.


>> accreditation certificate

Students who have successfully completed a university degree in mechanical engineering, process engineering, electrical engineering, environmental technology, agricultural and raw materials technology or a related engineering course, will find that the master’s programme enables them to take up positions of responsibility in a variety of professional fields, perhaps as a specialist or as a manager in the energy industry.

The master’s programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology runs over 3 semesters and is a unique cross-university programme which combines the energy technology skills of 3 universities.

Admission requirements

The qualification requirement for admission to the master’s programme is a university degree or equivalent with a final grade average of min. 2.5 or above in a qualified course of study at a German or foreign university, lasting at least the standard period of study of six semesters.


The qualified courses of study referred to in paragraph 1 are in particular: energy and environmental system technology, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, process engineering, environmental protection, industrial engineering, physics engineering as well as mathematical-scientific courses of study.

A course of study shall also be deemed to be ‘qualified‘ if it comprises examination performances which are, for the most part, equivalent to the examination performances of one of the courses of study referred to in Paragraph 2 Sentence 1. The Examination Commission shall decide on the equivalence of the examination performances in accordance with Art. 63 BayHSchG.

Application procedure

Applications can only be submitted online via Ansbach University ‘s website. Further general information on the application criteria and procedure as well as access to the online application can be found here:

Study structure

The three-semester master’s programme is intended for diploma and bachelor graduates who have completed a seven-semester course of study. Bachelor graduates who have completed a six-semester course must complete in advance, either a theory semester or a practical study semester at one of the three participating universities.

In addition to the four core modules, the selection of individual profile modules gives you the opportunity to design your studies according to your interests.

You can start your studies in the summer or winter semesters.

This is how your studies might be structured if you have a seven-semester bachelor's degree (university/college):



An additional 30 ECTS points must be earned for a six-semester bachelor’s degree with a practical semester of study. Example:


In the case of a six-semester bachelor's degree (university/college) without a practical semester of study, this must also be completed:


Hydrogen technology

to the laboratory

Technical diagnostics, maintenance and reliability

to the laboratory

Energy process engineering/ Efficient energy conversion

to the laboratory

Further information

The Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology is characterised by a broad range of specialisations (profile modules) which correspond to the newest professional fields of activity across the entire spectrum of the energy industry.


The business and management-orientated knowledge you will gain from the master’s programme, will give you access to a broad labour market as a future specialist and manager in both the traditional and renewable energy sectors:


  • Manufacturer of energetic systems
  • Operators of energy plants
  • Energy companies
  • International energy trading

In addition to individual support, you will of course benefit from the many other advantages of our cross-university course:


  • Small study groups in modern laboratories
  • Practical study through project work
  • Studies at the three regional university competence centres for energy technology
