Energy Systems Engineering and Management


The global transition to clean energy is well underway. From Germany to China and countries all around the globe, governments, cities, towns, public institutions and progressive companies are leading the way to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels. Students in the master’s programme in Energy Systems Engineering and Management at Ruhr West explore technical and economic aspects of the clean energy revolution in a scientific and application-oriented way.

The energy industry is a key economic sector in industrialised societies. The necessary transformation of energy systems makes it even more important, especially when it comes to finding a good balance between society’s expectations of liberalisation and sustainability. Managers in a changing energy sector need professional qualifications that involve cross-sectional knowledge and an understanding of systems – from an engineering point of view as well as from a business point of view.

In the three-semester master’s programme in Energy Systems Engineering and Management at Ruhr West, students work on complex energy-related issues, observing technical and economic conditions and developing an understanding of innovative energy systems. The programme builds on Ruhr West’s undergraduate programme of the same name and is suitable for students with a bachelor’s degree in

  • Engineering and Management
  • Energy and Environmental Engineering
  • Energy Informatics
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Energy and Water Management
  • comparable study programmes at other universities

This energy-related postgraduate degree in engineering and management is an inter- and transdisciplinary programme, as illustrated by the following contents:

  • Energy engineering and energy industry
  • Renewable energies
  • Energy networks and energy storage
  • Corporate development and controlling
  • Financial and risk management
  • Scientific simulation
  • Mathematics
  • Project work with a focus on both research and application
