STUDYING RENEWABLE ENERGIES AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT IN ASCHAFFENBURG

Programme structure
Small class sizes and close contact with the dedicated team of professors creates a more personal atmosphere on the programme. In the 6th and 7th semester, you choose two of the major fields of study offered by the Faculty of Engineering and so can specialise in those areas which interest you. Our teaching is based on numerous thought-provoking laboratory experiments, which give you the knowledge and methods you will later require in your career. You perform all lab experiments first-hand, so you can consolidate the theoretical contents of the course and experience the fascination of technology directly. The project work, which involves you working on an application-based project with other students, enables you to familiarise yourself thoroughly with industrial working methods.

Programme contents and specialisation areas  
This programme teaches students the necessary technical knowledge, skills and methods to enable them to assess, develop, plan, market and operate power installations. The focus lies on an integrated view of sustainable energy concepts in the economic-ecological field of electricity. Through links with the regional and supraregional economy, the degree programme is strongly practice-based in design and specifically prepares students for the requirements of their later career.

Practical training
Lab experiments throughout the programme provide you with practice-based learning which equips you with the knowledge you will need in the future. You perform all lab experiments first-hand, so you can consolidate the theoretical content of the programme. The project work, which involves you working on an application-based project with other students, enables you to familiarise yourself thoroughly with industrial working methods. You will study in a new building complex on campus, which houses ultra-modern computer and laboratory equipment that guarantees a state-of-the-art education. A computer centre with high-performance connection to the science network is available to all students on the programme.

The various languages on offer at Aschaffenburg additionally prepare you for a world of work where globalisation and internationalisation have become critical factors. Aschaffenburg UAS has cooperation agreements with European and non-European universities which offer you the opportunity to gain experience abroad during your course of study.
