Program Information

The four-semesters Master's Program "Power Engineering" addresses students world-wide with a Bachelor's Degree in electrical or mechanical engineering, natural sciences or a related field.
Graduates of the program will receive a Master's degree (M.Sc.) in Power Engineering.

TUM is system accredited by the Swiss Center of Accreditation and Quality Assurance in Higher Education.

The main areas covered are:

  • Energy System Analysis and Modelling
  • Power Generation Technologies (fossil, nuclear, and renewable)
  • Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics
  • Power Semiconductors and Rectifier Circuits
  • High Voltage Technology
  • Energy Storage and Transmission
  • Renewable Energy Technologies
  • Energy Economy
  • Industrial Process and Control
  • Civil Engineering
  • Wind Energy

The first and second semester covers core modules in mechanical and electrical engineering, e.g. thermodynamics, high voltage technology, energy systems and energy economy.
In the third semester more elective subjects like renewable energy technologies, thermal power plants, energy storage, wind energy and civil engineering can be chosen. Students have also to pass a seminar and and carry out a nine-week research internship. In addition, students have to pass interdisciplinary subjects. The Master’s Thesis during the fourth semester concludes the program. Fore more details please go the curriculum.
