About

The master's program in Power Engineering at Technical University of Munich deals with power plant engineering and electricity generation. Electricity generation originates principally in large thermal and hydraulic power plants and is increasingly complemented by decentralized generation technologies providing renewable energies.

Overview

The master's program in Power Engineering from Technical University of Munich deepens students' previous knowledge of energy technologies. Students are able to understand innovative methods, technologies and structures in the area of centralized and decentralized power generation. The aim is to develop and apply strategies for ecological, inexpensive and sustainable energy systems.   

In addition to furthering core competencies in the areas of mechanical and electrical engineering, the master's program in Power Engineering offers students considerable freedom of choice. Modules are complemented by practical research. 

Which further expertise and skills will I acquire?

  • As a graduate you are able to deal independently with complex projects in the area of power generation and supply. You are familiar with power plant construction and technologies and are able to interface with all associated disciplines. 
  • You know the most important processes and methods relating to power generation, energy storage and transmission and can classify and assess these. Your expertise allows you to recognize innovations in the area of electrical power supply and to evaluate their potential.

Programme Structure

  • In the first semester, students' previous knowledge of various disciplines is deepened through core modules in the area of electrical and mechanical engineering. 
  • The second and third semesters are devoted to the deepening of specialist knowledge and to an individual focus in the context of elective modules. This phase also includes practical research, where students collaborate on current projects conducted at a teaching or research institute. A seminar deepens the knowledge acquired from the modules and offers a further opportunity to focus on a special topic of research.Students can also supplement their management competencies and self-development through modules from outside the discipline.
  • The fourth semester is devoted to the master's thesis, where the accrued knowledge of the discipline and its methods converge in the handling of a major task.
