Program description

Electrical Energy & Mobility Systems MSc

In order to be prepared for the multitude of technical requirements future experts in Electrical Energy & Mobile Systems need to master, the program focuses on a range of important aspects of Electromobility. The program’s areas of expertise include Storage Units – Battery Technology as well as Monitoring and Mobility Logistics. Equipped with this knowledge graduates are in high demand on the job market. They qualify for activities in private sector businesses as well as research institutions.  Electrical Energy & Mobility Systems graduates are able to understand, develop and modify complex technical systems in the fields of electric power train development, drive control, electrical machines, mobile power electronics, battery technology, power electronics, alternative energy systems and mobility concepts. To support those careers, the program offers additional insights into Academic Competence Skills and Science Engineering.

Additional in-depth theoretical input is being provided during the course of the degree. The first semester, well combined with the Master degree program Biomimetics in Energy Systems, is followed by two semesters of specialisation on electrical power & drive systems, power electronics, mobile energy storage, energy systems, automotive controls, mobility systems, and automotive logistics. In the fourth semester the Master thesis will be written in conjunction with a work placement. On completing the final examination after four semesters, students are awarded the Master of Science in Engineering, MSc.

Admission requirements

In addition to the formal requirements for admission, applicants to the Master’s program in Electrical Energy & Mobility Systems should:

  • Hold a degree of higher education (minimum 3-year Bachelor’s program) in the field of Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering and Electronics
