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
Federal Physical-Technical Institute (PTB)
there is intensive cooperation with vehicle and component manufacturers, network operators in the region and at home and abroad.
In the research-oriented Bachelor's degree programme, you will be taught the necessary fundamentals of the basic engineering sciences - in particular mathematics, chemistry and physics. Building on this, you will learn basic knowledge, analysis and design methods from electrical engineering, chemistry, information technology, computer science and mechanical engineering.
The basic training covers the areas of photovoltaics, wind energy, heat pump systems, hydrogen, electrical drives for road traffic and electrical and material storage. In addition, you will acquire further specialist knowledge in selectable specialisations as well as non-technical key qualifications. Furthermore, you can choose to complete an industrial internship or a team project and write a final thesis.
Graduates of the Bachelor's degree programme are qualified to pursue a corresponding professional activity or to complete a consecutive Master's degree programme. In addition to the fundamentals of electrical engineering, they have extensive basic knowledge and methodological skills in the fields of optics, quantum and materials, the electromagnetic fields, thermodynamics and chemistry.
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".
