You possess comprehensive, interdisciplinary knowledge in the areas of energy, environment and process technology, providing a pragmatic decision-making basis for highly advanced energy and environmental technologies and systems. You systematically analyse, describe, model and simulate complex, technical processes across a range of specialist fields and work in interdisciplinary teams, manage large-scale projects and assume management roles in energy, process and environmental technology.
Specific prior knowledge is required for admission to this profile of the master’s degree programme. Candidates holding a bachelor degree in one of the following disciplines generally meet the criteria:
- Bachelor of Science in Energy and Environment
- Bachelor of Science in Renewable Energies and Environment
- Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Electronics
- Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Automotive Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Material and Process Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Systems Engineering (exception FHNW)
Candidates not holding any of the above-mentioned degrees will be assessed in a personal interview.
The focus of the master’s degree programme is on specialising in greater depth; two-thirds of the programme is devoted to this and is completed at a research unit of a university of applied sciences. As part of this in-depth specialisation you will write two project theses and the master’s thesis.
One-third of your degree programme focuses on theory, which is taught in modules. These theory modules are subdivided into three areas:
- Technical Scientific Modules | TSM
- Fundamental Theoretical Principles | FTP
- Context Modules | CM
Your degree programme is planned with support from your advisor. This study advisor will also guide you on the choice of theory modules and specialisation.
