Are you interested in cutting-edge technologies in the field of energy and how the future supply of energy and energy systems will be networked? Then the degree programme in Energy Engineering at the Hochschule Bremen might be just the right thing for you!
The programme, which is based on a classical mechanical engineering degree, is characterised by challenging studies in thermal and regenerative energy technologies. In addition to theoretical knowledge, the strong practical orientation of the degree programme is ideal preparation for the challenges you will one day meet in your future career.
When you graduate from the degree programme in Energy Engineering, you will be fit to deal with the challenges the field is facing. You will be expert in energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies and be able to contribute towards a greener, more environmentally friendly future. In the course of the energy transition and the development of renewable energies, these skills are more in demand than ever.
The career prospects on the labour market are therefore sustainably good and you will be able to choose from a broad spectrum of professional activities.
Moreover, after completing the programme you will have the option to acquire a further degree at the Hochschule Bremen or a university abroad and thus further expand your knowledge and enhance your personal profile.
In the first three semesters, the focus is on teaching the foundations of the physics related to energy technology and facets of general engineering. In interdisciplinary courses, you learn to adopt a cross-disciplinary approach to the field.
In the fourth and fifth semesters, you learn about cutting-edge technologies in the field of energy generation. In this part of the programme, special emphasis is also placed on learning methodological skills such as media competences, information acquisition and processing, as well as application-oriented planning and problem-solving ability.
The third part of the programme begins in the sixth semester with an 18-week industrial placement. It is also possible to undertake your work placement in a non-German-speaking country abroad, the aim here being to deepen intercultural competence and language skills in practice as well as to promote a global view of the market, technology and the environment.
In the final semester, a project module and the Bachelor's thesis give you the opportunity to focus on a specific topic in the field of energy. Here there is a special focus on how different technologies are networked into complex systems, especially with regard to the interaction with renewable energies.
Due to the strong practice reference in the lab courses, exercises in design, student projects and the industrial placement, you will be able to analyse complex energy systems, develop technical solutions and turn them into projects while taking due account of business and ecological considerations.
The sixth semester is a practical semester, in which you spend at least 18 weeks putting into practice the knowledge you have gained so far. In addition to deepening your subject-specific knowledge
it is also about understanding how companies are organised and how they function. And it also
presents an opportunity to get to know potential employers – who may even be interested in supporting your Bachelor's thesis. Remember, the faculty will be very happy to offer support should you decide to go abroad for your work placement.
In addition to the practical semester, the degree programme encompasses a large number of laboratories in which theoretical knowledge can be applied in practice. Moreover, the Julius Robert Mayer Institute as well as the Centre for Energy Efficient Technology and Architecture (ZeTA) at HSB are also able to offer challenging and practice-relevant topics for bachelor's theses in the context of development and research projects.
Through its international contacts, the degree programme offers you the opportunity to undertake an 18-week industrial placement in a non-German-speaking country in the third stage of your studies.
On the one hand, this allows you to deepen your intercultural competence and hone your language skills. On the other hand, such a stay abroad helps you to gain a global view of the market, technology and the environment.
Within the framework of partnership agreements, the Faculty of Nature and Technology at HSB cooperates with numerous universities in other countries, e.g. in Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Colombia, Croatia, the Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Spain, Turkey, Hungary and Chile.
