Energy and Environment (EE)
The specialist subject of Energy and Environment (FE) focuses on sustainability, with a view to caring for the environment and dealing with natural resources in an economical way. You will be able to work in interdisciplinary teams, manage major projects and assume leadership roles in energy, process and environmental technologies.
During the course of study, you will extend your knowledge of basic subjects such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer and material transport. Furthermore, you will be able to analyse, describe, model and simulate complex technical processes in a systematic way. This will enable you to develop, optimise, plan, implement and operate efficient systems and processes which conserve resources and to provide high-quality services.
Methodological and management competences
After completing the course of study, you will possess a high level of methodological expertise with regard to the solving of complex and cross-linked problems. Management skills will also be enhanced. You will be able to work in interdisciplinary teams, manage major projects and assume leadership roles in energy, process and envi-ronmental technologies.
The "Energy and Environment" specialist field is organised into the following fields of expertise:
- Power technology (electrical): use of renewable electrical energy sources such as photovoltaics, fuel cells, storage, supply and utilisation of energy
- Power technology (thermal): design, modelling, planning, implementation and operation of efficient systems for the conversion, storage, provision and utilisation of energy such as wind power, heat pumps, ...
- Process engineering: design, layout, modelling, planning, implementation and operation of processes and systems
- Environmental engineering: analysis, modelling, planning and implementation of measures for air, water and land environmental problems, as well as in the area of process-integrated environmental protection
