Energy Science and Engineering

Master of Science


In the course of the interdisciplinary Master of Science programme Energy Science and Engineering, complementary fields of engineering and natural sciences are linked towards the topics of energy research and energy technology.

Apart from examining regenerative energies and the more efficient utilisation of conventional energy sources, the social framework will also be included in the studies. The programme can be adjusted to the students’ individual interests by choosing from an extensive optional compulsory subject area as well as by focusing on two selected key topics. A mentor system will provide guidance and support. During the programme, it is possible to study abroad.

While the Bachelor of Science degree focuses mainly on the fundamentals of the field, the Master of Science builds directly on this foundation by providing more breadth and depth scientifically and a more complete insight into the field. In contrast to the Bachelor degree programme, the Master of Science enables and requires students to adopt their own major focal area and to work towards their own independent academic, scientific research profile.

For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master of Science degree.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the TU Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at TU Darmstadt

Master of Science in Energy Science and Engineering graduates work at the interface of technical understanding, engineering-oriented application and social responsibility of energy-relevant projects.

Having acquired extensive expertise in the field of energy, energy scientists are able to approach the respective issues in university research as well as in administrative positions in governmental and non-governmental organisations. As the energy industry plays a significant role in the 21st century, job opportunities in industry or industry-oriented research and development as well as in consulting and assessment are increasing.

For this reason it is important to start early in the degree programme to gain practical work experience in relevant organisations. In this way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad.
