About

The aim of the Renewable Energy Engineering and Management degree offered by the University of Freiburg is to provide international students with first-class training in the field of “Renewable Energy Engineering and Management.” The M.Sc. REM programme is designed to close the strategic gap between the technical aspects of renewable energy and the policy drivers for sustainable development.

Overview

Climate change, finite resource availability, and environmental pollution are some of the greatest issues facing our society now and in the future. Renewable Energy Engineering and Management degree offered by the University of Freiburg can be a key solution to these problems, and the development, planning, installation, and operation of renewable energy technologies needs a highly skilled work force.

The concept of the M.Sc. course Renewable Energy Engineering and Management at the University of Freiburg is based on the following fundamental considerations:

  • The course enables students to avail themselves of innovation in the field of renewable energy and to implement the concept of sustainable development for practical business purposes.
  • Technical know-how and an awareness of societal problems are necessary qualifications, but are not of themselves sufficient. Additional management qualifications are required. These include technical knowledge, multidisciplinary ability in terms of team development, presentation and project management.
  • The degree course is practical and problem-focused (projects, case studies, internship, a Master’s thesis on practical and relevant themes carried out in cooperation with industrial partners).
