Energy Process Engineering

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 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.
