Study overview

 

In close cooperation with the Technical University Nuremberg Georg Simon Ohm and the University Weihenstephan-Triesdorf , Ansbach University of Applied Sciences is offering a Master Degree in Energy Management and Energy Technology, leading to a Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), an internationally recognised academic degree

The energy industry is in the midst of a transformation. In addition to the implementation of the energy transition, the digitalisation of the energy industry is one of the greatest challenges. In order to ensure a constant supply of renewable energies, it is necessary to intelligently link generation, distribution and consumption.

Our students can best address this reorientation of the energy industry through our interdisciplinary and inter-university training programme

In order to plan, build and operate energy plants or energy-saving and environmentally friendly facilities, the students at the three universities acquire valuable additional specialist, social, methodological and foreign language skills.

Project and master theses in cooperation with companies round off the course in a practical way.

Admission requirements

The three-semester Master's programme is intended for Diplom and Bachelor's graduates with a seven-semester degree.

The qualification requirement for admission to the Master's degree programme is a university degree or equivalent degree with an overall examination grade of 2.5 or better in a qualified degree programme comprising at least the standard period of study of six semesters at a German or foreign university.
Bachelor graduates with a six-semester degree complete either a theory semester or a practical study semester at one of the three participating universities beforehand.
Qualified are engineering courses of study especially in the fields of mechanical engineering, process engineering, electrical engineering, energy technology, environmental protection, renewable energy technology, industrial engineering, physics engineering as well as mathematics and natural science courses of study or a related engineering course of study.

Furthermore, a qualified course of study is deemed to exist if it comprises examination achievements that are for the majority equivalent to the examination achievements of one of the above-mentioned courses of study.
The modules in the Master's degree programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology are predominantly taught in German. For this reason, the relevant language skills are required. Further details on language requirements can be found >>here<<.

If you are not sure about the requirements of your university degree, please feel free to contact us personally.

Locations

With the Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology, the three universities are pooling their energy technology expertise in a cross-university programme.

How do you get to the other locations?

The study programme takes place mainly in Ansbach and only to a lesser extent in Nuremberg and Triesdorf. To limit commuting to the other locations, the modules outside Ansbach are combined as much as possible. In addition to travelling by train, carpooling is also organised among the students to a large extent. This means that the other locations are always within easy reach.

Accreditation

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:

Application modalities & online application

Deadlines:

    for the summer semester: 01.12. - 15.01.
    for the winter semester: 02.05. - 15.07.

Please note:

  • The formal admission criteria for the study programme are defined in the study and examination regulations of the study programme.
  • Application for admission to the programme is 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.
  •  For more information for foreign students, please refer to the Information sheet for applicants.

Study structure

The three-semester Master's programme is divided into three module groups (Management, Technology, Planning - Operation - Sustainability), two team-oriented project works and a Master's thesis.
The Master's programme is characterised above all by its diverse elective options. For each of the three module groups, you can freely choose from a portfolio of modules. This allows you to design the Master's degree entirely according to your personal interests. You only have to pay attention to the minimum number of ECTS points per module group.

The basic structure of the Master's programme is as follows:

 

In addition to the classic module groups, it is also possible to draw on the range of subject-specific modules offered by the partner universities or the Virtual University of Bavaria e.V..

In addition to the three module groups, there are two practice-oriented projects. The Master's programme is rounded off by your Master's thesis.
The order of the module groups and their modules does not matter except for that of the Master's thesis.

To illustrate the design possibilities of the study programme,two sample study programmes were created. The examples presented here show a strongly economic and technical design of the Master's programme. However, it is entirely up to you how you organise your Master's programme and which focal points you choose.

Accreditation

 

In October 2019, the Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology was successfully accredited once again. The qualified study programme was awarded the quality seal of the Accreditation Council by the ACQUIN agency. The accreditation confirms the high level of the Master's programme and documents the international comparability of the degree.
