Study overview

The University of Applied Sciences Ansbach offers in close cooperation with the Technical University Nuremberg Georg Simon Ohm and the University Weihenstephan-Triesdorf the Master's degree in Energy Management and Energy Technology with the degree of Master of Engineering (M.Eng.). The Master's degree is unique in its conception.

 

 

About the Program

The Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technician (EMT) is completed with a Master of Engineering degree after three semesters of regular study. The programme can begin in the winter semester or the summer semester and takes place mainly in Ansbach and to a lesser extent in Nuremberg and Triesdorf. Your Master's programme is closely aligned with the requirements of the energy sector. Resources and facilities of other universities in the region (e.g. Schweinfurt University of Applied Sciences) are also integrated. Thus, internships and project work can be carried out there. The language of instruction is German. The course directors are Prof. Dr. Jörg Kapischke and Prof. M.Sc. Stefan Weiherer.

In February 2013, the Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology was successfully accredited for the first time. The particularly qualified study programme was awarded the seal of quality of the Accreditation Council by the ACQUIN agency until 30 September 2018. The accreditation proves the high level of the Master's programme and documents the international comparability of the degree.

 

>> accreditation certificate

After a successful university degree in mechanical engineering, process engineering, electrical engineering, energy technology, environmental technology, agricultural and raw materials technology or a related engineering course, the Master's programme enables students to enter a variety of responsible professional fields as a specialist and manager in the energy industry.

With the three-semester Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology, the three universities combine their energy technology skills in a cross-university programme.

Admission requirements

The qualification requirement for admission to the Master's programme is a university degree or equivalent with a total examination grade of 2.5 or better in a qualified course of study at a German or foreign university lasting at least the standard period of study of six semesters.

 

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

Application for studies

Application is only possible online via the Ansbach University website. Further information on the general application modalities as well as access to the online application can be found here:

  • For further information please refer to the information sheet EMT.
  • The formal admission criteria for the study programme are defined in the study and examination regulations of the study programme.
  • Applications for admission to the programme are generally possible in the summer semester as well as in the winter semester.
  • If you have any questions, please contact the course advisor or the head of the programme.

Study structure

The three-semester Master's programme is intended for diploma and bachelor graduates with a seven-semester course of study. Bachelor graduates with a six-semester course complete either a theory semester or a practical study semester at one of the three participating universities in advance.
In addition to the four core modules, the selection of individual profile modules gives you the opportunity to personalize your studies according to your interests.
You can start your studies in the summer and winter semesters

This is how your studies could look like with a seven-semester Bachelor's degree (university/university):

 

 

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/hochshule) without a practical semester of study, this must also be completed:

Laboratories

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 an interesting spectrum of specialisations (profile modules) which correspond to the later professional fields of activity across the entire spectrum of the energy industry.

 

The acquisition of business management and management-oriented knowledge in the Master's programme gives you, as a future specialist and manager, access to a broad labour market in both the classic and renewable energy sectors:

 

  • Manufacturer of energetic systems
  • Operators of energetic 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 of study:

 

  • Small study groups in modern laboratories
  • Practical study through project work
  • Studies at the three energy technical university competence centres of the region
