Within the programme "Power Engineering" (PE) three different branches of studies will be offered in

- EPE - Electrical Power Engineering
- PPT - Power Plant Technology
- SES - Sustainable Energy Supply

Goal of the Programme: Education in Sustainable Energy Supply in a European Context

The development of durable concepts for safe, affordable and environmentally sound energy production is one of the most urgent, global challenges confronting humanity in the 21st century. It is inseparable from critical issues of environmental protection and sustainable development. Together with the management and supply of fuel and heat, the provision of secure electrical energy is a central problem in todays world.

The creation of key technologies through innovation as well as the creation of knowledge through research and education is decisive factors in a global market. It has been highlighted by the European Commissioner for Science and Research, which it will be necessary to develop strong regional poles of research, innovation and education, which are intensively linked to regional as well as to global economical aspects.

The PE-Masters course focuses on these key issues. Its close link to the regional energy industry is an essential part of the programme in order to ensure quality research taking into account the needs of industry today.

Traditional as well as renewable energies and their related industries for a long time have been a European stronghold. Now however, they face severe competition from emerging markets. Since the start of liberalisation of the European energy market industry has become very dynamic and has in some regions formed energy clusters of distinct economic relevance. In order to ensure further European prevalence in the field of energy research and innovation, the Masters course Power Engineering (PE) will cover the entire spectrum of energy research through cooperation with a global network of high ranking universities and strong industrial enterprises.

The intention of the PE-master is to establish a superior European programme of graduate education, to train and develop a network of experts which extends from Europe to the emerging energy markets throughout the world. Finally the programme will establish a connection between universities and industry which will not only open career opportunities to our graduates, but also will contribute to reaching the EU goal of boosting the competitiveness of European economies.
