Are you aiming at a challenging position within the energy industry for your future career? The degree programme in Engineering and Management with a focus on energy production and energy supply is perfect preparation, not least because it combines the topics of environmental compatibility, climate protection, energy policy and economic efficiency.

Over the course of your studies, you will learn to analyse complex energy technology systems, to develop technological solutions, to plan and manage projects, to reach economical assessments and to communicate using both engineering as well as business terms. Through its many international contacts, the degree programme offers you the opportunity to acquire further degrees at the Hochschule Bremen and/or at a university abroad.

You should have a good understanding of scientific and engineering contexts, and a general interest in economic issues and energy technology are an advantage. As the degree programme is strongly oriented towards engineering topics, a good knowledge of mathematics and physics at the upper secondary school level is useful.

Career prospects

On the labour market, graduates of engineering and management with solid technological and economic knowledge are much sought after in the areas of energy supply and energy policy. This is especially true for the growing market of regenerative energy systems. At HSB, you will receive sound training for this, both in the theoretical fundamentals and practical applications in laboratory courses.

Potential careers are in:

  • Energy supply companies
  • Large, medium and small industrial companies in the field of energy technology
  • Consultancy firms
  • Engineering offices for planning and project management
  • Plant construction and operation (service/maintenance)
  • Research institutes
  • Public authorities

Programme structure

The degree programme combines elements from four thematic areas:

  1. engineering, natural sciences and mathematics
  2. economics and law
  3. integration subjects (deepening knowledge surrounding the topic of energy from an engineering and economics perspective)
  4. soft skills, practical semester and Bachelor's thesis.

The programme is spread over 7 semesters and typically comprises five modules per semester. In the first one and a half years of study (1st, 2nd and 3rd semesters) you consolidate foundation knowledge in mathematics, science, engineering and economics. Following this (4th and 5th semesters), you deepen your knowledge of selected topics surrounding power systems engineering and economics of the power industry. In particular, renewable energies, energy trading and data processing play an important role.

In the third 6th and 7th semester, you will apply the knowledge you have already acquired in the supervised practical semester and strengthen your inter- and intrapersonal skills. In addition, you will further develop your competences with regard to central themes of energy engineering and energy management.

The programme ends with the Bachelor's thesis in the 7th semester.
