The first two semesters focus on the fundamentals of engineering and natural sciences and business management. In order to achieve this balance, the third and fourth semester build on the first two semesters by focusing in a more in-depth way on how specific characteristics of energy engineering facilities can be used. Through the program’s practical projects, students can apply the theory they have learned in relation to methods of project development, project financing and presentation.

The sixth semester is reserved for a minimum ten-week traineeship and the writing of a dissertation. As a rule, traineeships and dissertations are completed together with partners from industry or public institutions and often provide the gateway to subsequent careers.
