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 Degree in Energy Management and Energy Technology with the degree of internationally recognized Master of Engineering (M.Eng.).

Greenhouse gas emissions, resource consumption and risks in nuclear power generation are the reasons why Germany and Europe want to use more renewable energies, achieve higher energy efficiencies and implement optimised electricity and heat networks.

Our students can best face this reorientation of the energy industry with the interdisciplinary and cross-university training concept.

For the planning, construction and operation of energy plants or energy-saving and environmentally friendly facilities, the students of the three universities acquire additional important specialist, social, methodological and foreign language skills.

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

Brief synopsis

The Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology (EMT) concludes with a Master of Engineering after three semesters of standard study time. 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. Members of the course management are Prof. Dr. Jörg Kapischke and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Georg Rosenbauer.

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

>> Accreditation certificate

Following successful university studies in applied engineering sciences, mechanical engineering, process engineering, electrical engineering, energy technology, environmental protection, renewable energy technology, industrial engineering, agricultural and raw materials technology or a related engineering course, the Master's programme enables students to enter diverse and responsible professional fields as specialists and managers 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.

The study takes place predominantly in Ansbach and to a lesser extent in Nuremberg and Triesdorf. Their 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) are also integrated. Thus, internships and project work can be carried out there.

The modules in the Master's programme in Energy Management and Energy Technology are predominantly taught in German. For this reason, the corresponding language skills are required.

Admission requirements

The qualification requirement for admission to the Master's programme is a university degree or equivalent with an overall 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 are in particular Applied Engineering Sciences, Energy and Environmental Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Process Engineering, Environmental Security, Energy Process Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Physical Engineering and Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

In addition, a qualified course of study is deemed to exist if it comprises examination performances which are mostly equivalent to the examination performances of one of the above-mentioned courses of study.

The Examination Commission decides on the equivalence of the examination performances.

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:

Application modalities & online application

Deadlines:

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

Please note:

    Further information can be found in the information sheet EMT.
    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.

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 personalise your studies according to your interests.
You can start your studies in the summer and winter semesters.

 

 

For a six-semester Bachelor's degree with a practical semester of study, an additional 30 ECTS points must be earned.

 

 

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

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 both in the classical and in the regenerative energy sector:

  • Manufacturer of energetic plants
  • 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
