In the energy technology master’s program, you will learn about the natural and engineering sciences and concepts of energy conversion, storage and distribution. This leads you to a well-founded specialist knowledge in the fields of energy conversion and application. They deal with the potentials and profitability of various energy sources (fossil fuels, nuclear energy, solar energy, wind energy, hydropower and biomass) and their integration into the energy system.
After completing your studies, you will be able to analyze and evaluate plant and usage concepts for renewable and conventional energy technology from an energetic and economic point of view, as well as plan and carry out analytical and model studies.
Degree in a bachelor's degree program lasting at least six semesters (or an equivalent degree)
Degree in the respective course or a course with very similar content
Depending on the course, there may be additional requirements. The exact admission criteria can be found in the admission regulations
Admission with conditions
In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .
Graduated from a university of applied sciences
A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.
Admission restriction (NC)
In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.
Apart from the admission with conditions, there are other variants of admission depending on the subject:
