Schedules and characteristics

The Master’s degree program IT for Energy at Campus El Gouna focuses on fundamental aspects of energy engineering and the application of information technologies on energy challenges, including both conventional and renewable energies. Energy engineering is considered, including most recent issues such as integration of renewable energies and energy storage, Students are able to choose according to their preferences which Energy Engineering Electives they want to gain a deeper understanding in.

While the study program integrates the latest scientific developments and methods, it also pays attention to the economic, ecological, social and industrial applicability. Moreover energy systems design, evaluation and optimization with the help of information technologies belongs to the core learning goals and thus builds the compulsory module area.

Energy Engineering (1 and 2) along with Intercultural Competence, completed by an internship and the master’s thesis are mandatory. A total of 120 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation system (ECTS) will be awarded. After successful completion the Master of Science of the Technische Universität Berlin will be granted.

Study Content


The program IT for Energy is adjusted to the students own choice of electives and consists of five core study areas:

I. Compulsory Modules

In order to tackle the most current challenges within the energy sector, students need to firstly need a detailed knowledge of energy conversion system design and operation on system and component level. The module “Energy Engineering I” emphasizes applied and advanced thermodynamic as well as economic and environmental aspects for analysis and optimization of energy-conversion systems. Within the module Information Technologies for Energy, the mindset of the students shall be tackled, introducing them to the widespread opportunities of IT within the field of energy. The compulsory module Advanced Information Modeling is aiming to increase the students’ ability for finally applying IT Technology.

II. Energy Engineering Electives

In order to get a deeper understanding of Energy Engineering students are able to select modules out of the following core study areas: Energy Engineering and Components, Energy Systems, Electrical Engineering. The student can freely decide upon which energy topics to focus on: Energy Engineering II, Integration of Renewable Energy, Conversion Technologies for Renewable Energies, Energy for Buildings, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Photovoltaics, Energy Storage and Conversion, Components of Energy Conversion Systems. The program thereby aims to target issues most common in the MENA region, covering on the one hand fundamentals and on the other hand advanced application.

III. IT, Economics and Law Electives

Generally the study area IT, Economics and Law is the most diverse aiming to provide students with knowledge about the wide scope of energy, its challenges and the application areas for information technology. Energy Systems and Economics for instance debates the challenges and obstacles while applying energy technologies. IT technology can be applied within within the complex structure of diverse energy markets, economic calculation, fundamentals of energy trade and market incentives or within the power grid challenges.

IT and Computer Science Electives:

Economics, Management and Law electives

IV. Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Competency

Social skills, intercultural competence, fruitful group work, managerial and presentation skills along with analytical thinking in problem solving are core competencies essential for a successful career. Obviously, soft skills cannot be learned by the book. At TU Berlin Campus El Gouna more than 20 nations and most diverse backgrounds meet, offering an exceptional exposure. The modules Project Management and Intercultural Communication as well as Interdisciplinary Project take advantage of the unique multicultural and diverse environment in order to encourage students to learn essential skills while independently carrying out, managing and finally presenting project work.

V. Internship and Master thesis

The German higher education system is dominated by learning of self-management and organization along with an independent and systematic approach to scientific tasks. Thus students have the opportunity to choose among electives, locate the company for their two month industrial internship and independently select the subject of their projects and their Master's thesis topic, supervising institution and professors individually.
