Studying Process Engineering and Energy Process Engineering

Making renewable energy sources, like sunlight and wind power, useable and improving the sustainability and efficiency of production processes - all of this is part of the process engineering discipline.

Studying Process Engineering or Energy Process Engineering is just the thing for anyone interested in technology and natural sciences and who wants to learn about more sustainable and climate-friendly production methods.

Process engineering comprises processes in engineering and industry in which raw materials of all kinds are processed and converted into new products. Examples include manufacturing medicines, food processing, and producing plastics from crude oil, but also future-oriented processes such as the production of solar cells from siliceous sand, the use of renewable raw materials, and recycling processes.

In energy process engineering, the focus is on energy conversion processes, e.g., to store energy from sunlight in the form of hydrogen and make it useable as electricity when needed. Process steps such as exhaust gas treatment in conventional power plants and the analysis of energy efficiency in processes are important aspects.
