Few engineering disciplines are undergoing such drastic change as energy engineering. Topics such as the finite nature of fossil fuels, the phasing out of nuclear energy, methods for the efficient use of energy and the use of renewable energy sources to ensure a climate-neutral supply, coupled with visionary energy storage technologies, are in the spotlight against the backdrop of the ever-increasing global demand for energy.

Our Energy Process Engineering bachelor’s degree programme at the Faculty of Process Engineering covers all of these topics and teaches young people to become engineers who are able to respond to the complexities of the subject and to play an active part in shaping the energy transition.

Special features
  • The Energy Process Engineering bachelor’s degree programme at Nuremberg Tech was introduced in 2011.
  • Our campus has state-of-the-art laboratories and computer rooms for research work and exercises, where you will gain practical insights into current application programmes, common engineering methods, and innovative approaches to solving a wide range of problems in energy engineering.
  • The Faculty of Process Engineering is involved in a large number of collaborative projects with industry, in which you can actively participate in the form of research projects.
  • The Faculty of Process Engineering maintains close contact with a diverse range of foreign universities, companies, and institutions, both within Europe and further afield. These links are maintained by means of research partnerships and student and lecturer exchanges. This means that students studying within the Faculty can complete a semester placement or their bachelor’s thesis abroad.
