Background and Challenges

Energy has been a key factor in the development of countries, enabling their economic growth and shaping their environments to the needs of human society. Due to the increasing requirements for energy and its carbon based generation, however, a range of serious problems have evolved, such as the exhausting of resources, air pollution and global warming. Air pollution was successfully tackled during the second half of the 20th century and is no longer a serious problem. The problems around resources and CO2 emissions, however, remain. Using renewable energies on a large scale could eliminate these problems. Renewable energy technologies include biofuels, solar heating and cooling, solar power, as well as water and wind power. Research and development at universities and industries faces the challenge of how to find innovative concepts for a safe, sustainable, and economic energy supply in the future.

Introduction to the program

This program focuses on fundamental and applied aspects of energy engineering, including aspects of energy conversion and renewable energies. While it integrates the latest scientific developments and methods, it is also highly applied in nature. The program fosters system- and process-orientation and interdisciplinary thinking among students. To complement the classroom experience, interdisciplinary teams of students from both this program and the Master's degree programs in Urban Development and Water Engineering work on projects that address typical theoretical and applied problems.

Target group and requirements

An appropriate academic background in the form of a relevant Bachelor degree or equivalent is an obligatory requirement for all Master programs at TU Berlin Campus El Gouna. As professional experience is considered to be a valuable asset for the course profile, practical work experience in a subject related field is desired. Additional qualifications, such as social commitment, publications, participation in extra-curricular academic events, language abilities, and  skills in information technology will also be taken into consideration.

A qualification in energy related engineering like mechanical, electrical, or chemical engineering, or similar is required. 

Admission to the program is limited to 30 students per year.

Teaching and Learning Methods

Students at work

The modules include lectures, seminars, exercises, practical training and integrated projects which are provided by the respective professors (lectures) or research assistants (exercises, practical training) of the TU Berlin. The experiments in the technical hall and the laboratories will help the students to understand the sophisticated contents in the field of energy and process engineering. The interdisciplinary project work includes site viewings (excursions), group discussions, as well as team and study workshops. Due to the relatively new city infrastructure of El Gouna which includes modern supply systems, the students are able access the facilities such as water desalination, power generation and transformer stations for their project work.

The participants also gain professional experience by studying and developing their social and intercultural skills at the same time. The performance of the students is assessed on the basis of written and oral exams, presentations and a final dissertation report (Master’s thesis).



Business and Academic Opportunities

Graduates with a Master’s degree in Energy Engineering have very good career prospects. The demand for knowledgeable engineers trained in the use and development of innovative technologies for renewable energies and sustainable power generation is on the rise. In-depth knowledge of the technology, however, accounts for just one part of the required profile; energy management and expertise on improving efficiency are of similar importance. The best graduates also have a range of excellent options in terms of continuing their academic careers in PhD programs.
