Sustainable Energy Engineering (Master)

Zwei Männer im Labor

Key data

Degree Master of Science
Standard duration of study 4 semesters
Language of Instruction German
Start of programme winter and summer semester
Admission free admission (special admission requirements)

As a graduate from the Sustainable Energy Engineering degree programme you will develop and optimise technologies in different areas of sustainable energy conversion, such as batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaic or wind and hydropower plants. By establishing the technical prerequisites for the storage and distribution of energy, you will design and plan plants in order to use energy in a sustainable and efficient manner. You will also analyse and evaluate plants under aspects of energetic and economic sustainability and develop processes for optimised energy and resource use.

If you want to play an active role in shaping the future along these paths, the Master’s degree programme in Sustainable Energy Engineering at TU Braunschweig will be the perfect fit for you.

What is special about TU Braunschweig?

Focus on specialisation in an interesting environment

Braunschweig is an attractive research region and studying here means you are at the cutting edge of science. Our close ties with TU research centres such as the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF), the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) promote practical teaching and give you the opportunity to establish business contacts. You can get additional insights into the latest scientific research thanks to our various cooperation partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), National Metrology Institute. From collaborating with the high-tech workshop Protohaus to succeeding with the Cluster of Excellence or setting the world record for the largest paper aeroplane—we are part of the action!


Options over obligations

In the Master’s programme, students take a few compulsory courses. These build on the basics of the Bachelor’s programme and are the foundation for the further content of the programme. The majority of the Master’s programme, however, consists of courses that students choose according to their own interests. Thanks to a variety of elective courses, each student develops a personal profile and finds their own specialisation.



The Master’s degree programme in Sustainable Energy Engineering takes an interdisciplinary approach to energy topics, from energy generation to its transport and use, and draws on the disciplines of mechanical engineering, chemistry, electrical engineering and economics. On the one hand, you will acquire a broad basic knowledge of the subject, but on the other hand, you can also become an expert in one of the sub-areas “(Electro-)Chemical Energy Engineering”, “Physical Energy Engineering” or “Energy- and Resource-efficient Processes” by choosing to specialise.
