Why Sustainable Energy Systems and Electromobility?
The further development of the energy system and electromobility with the components photovoltaics, wind energy, batteries, hydrogen electrolysers and fuel cells can only be achieved by looking beyond subject boundaries. In the study programme "Sustainable Energy Systems and Electromobility", NEEMO for short, the necessary basics of physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and other engineering sciences are taught. In addition to individual technologies at component level, you will also learn cross-sector system modelling and holistic technology assessment at the TU Braunschweig. The education at TU Braunschweig offers you excellent career opportunities in the field of energy, heat and transport transition on the way to climate neutrality.
General information on the Bachelor's degree programme
With your degree, you will be in demand both at home and abroad: you will study under very good supervision at one of the best faculties in Germany, as university rankings repeatedly attest. The degree programme "Sustainable Energy Systems and Electromobility" at the TU Braunschweig means practice-oriented, interdisciplinary study at a renowned location with a high international profile.
The environment also contributes to the favourable conditions: Thanks to a large number of major research institutions, Braunschweig is considered a city of research and science! In addition to the close exchange with the following TU research centres:
Lower Saxony Research Centre for Automotive Engineering (NFF),
Lower Saxony Research Centre for Aviation (NFL)
and the cooperation with these local major research institutions
German Aerospace Center (DLR) as well as the
National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB)
there is intensive cooperation with vehicle and component manufacturers, network operators in the region and at home and abroad.
The research-oriented Bachelor´s degree programme Sustainable Energy Systems and Electromobility is an engineering degree programme with a focus on electrical engineering, specifically in the field of energy systems and electromobility. The study programme builds upon the close connection between electrical engineering and natural sciences to understand the topic of energy flows in its completeness.
The study programme initially conveys the foundations in basic sciences, especially mathematics, chemistry and physics being necessary to deal with matters specific to electrical and mechanical engineering and information technology. On this basis, foundational knowledge and methods of analysis and design are imparted covering electrical engineering, chemistry, information technology, and mechanical engineering. In this context, the curriculum comprises introductory courses into all the specific fields of sustainable energy systems and electromobility.
In addtion, first in-depth knowledge is attained in a field of specialisation which is chosen by the student. Also, the students acquire non-technical key qualifications, conduct an internship and complete a final thesis.
Graduates are qualified for professional practice in the entire field of the energy, heat and mobility transition or for a consecutive Master´s study programme. They have obtained both foundational and specific knowledge, which is based on the critical understanding of theoretical fundament as well as on a sound knowledge of the principles and methods of sustainable energy systems and electromobility.
Here you can find the recommended compulsory elective modules of the specialisation "Sustainable Engineering – Engineering Sciences" for the two profile lines "Sustainable Power Systems" and "Electromobility".
In the area of "interdisciplinary qualification", students choose between an industrial placement or a team project. In both cases, this is an ungraded piece of coursework.
Up to six weeks can be credited in the industrial internship. Details are regulated by the Special Examination Regulations (BPO) of the degree programme and the internship guidelines.
The team project should be carried out in groups of at least three students who exemplarily carry out on a superordinate topic. It should be carried out during the semester and is usually limited to one semester. Further requirements can also be found in the BPO.
