Sustainability - Energy Transition - Digitization

Energy consulting provides the impetus for sustainable development of our energy industry. Energy-intensive industrial companies contribute significantly to the energy transition by exploiting energy-saving opportunities. Balancing group management and project development for renewable energy ensure that the financial books of plants are balanced correctly and generate revenues. Digitalization presents municipal utilities and energy suppliers with new tasks. For these issues, the availability of qualified professionals is a key to success in the industry. The industry needs employees who enjoy communicating with customers and have the courage to come up with new ideas.

Path to becoming an energy specialist

The first year of the program focuses on economic, technical, and social skills. The second year builds on this with expert knowledge in the fields of renewable energies, digitization, and management. In seminars and practical projects, the students work on and present the perspectives on energy and infrastructure of other cultures. A 14-week internship paves the way to working life or a Master's degree.
