Renewable energy sources will be without doubt one of the greatest issues facing our society in the future.

Our aim is to provide international students with a context sensitive first-class training in the field of "Renewable Energy Management". The M.Sc. REM programme is designed to close the strategic gap between the technical aspects of renewable energy and the vision of sustainable development.

The course is not composed deductively from existing university structures and study programmes, but inductively from analysis of the potential, international employment market and the qualifications it requires. Providing pivotal management skills for practical business purposes, the REM programme offers application oriented specializations in four different fields of renewable energy: solar energy, geothermal energy, biomass or energy efficiency.

Graduates will have the ability to plan projects and facilities for the utilization of renewable energy and to implement them while taking account of economic, political and societal concerns. Thus the curriculum is designed to enable unique career prospects in the vocational fields of planning, engineering, consultancy and investment of renewable energy.

The concept of the M.Sc. course "Renewable Energy Management" is based on the following fundamental considerations:

  • The course enables students to avail themselves of innovation in the field of renewable energy and to implement the concept of sustainable development for practical business purposes.
  • Technical know-how and an awareness of societal problems are necessary qualifications, but are not of themselves sufficient. Additional management qualifications are required. These include technical knowledge, multidisciplinary ability in terms of team development, presentation and project management.
  • The degree course is practical and problem-focused (projects, case studies, internship, a Master's thesis on practical and relevant themes carried out in cooperation with industrial partners).
