The Master Program in Energy Engineering and Management taught at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) provides a comprehensive unterstanding of present and future energy systems and the complex interactions of their elements.


The master program, Energy Engineering and Management at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), is focused on professionals working in companies that deal with the generation, transportation, distribution, storage and sale of energy (electrical, thermal, etc.), their suppliers and industrial sectors that rely on energy heavily. 


Graduates of the program stand out due to an extensive overview on present an future technology for new energy systems. They are able to significantly participate in the successful introduction of new sustainable energy systems and to appraise not only the sustainability but also the aspects of operating efficiency, availability and safety as well and can evaluate them adequately.

Graduates can therefore understand, quantitatively describe, evaluate and optimize the elements of energy systems and their complex interactions. They are able to understand innovation processes and can effectively and successfully apply their knowledge either in existing companies or when founding “start-ups”. 


The KIT is system-accredited by AAQ. All HECTOR School master programs have successfully passed the internal quality assurance system of the KIT and are thereby accredited.
