The study program Regenerative Energy Technology at the TU Ilmenau is aimed at performance-oriented young people who are interested in energy supply from renewable energies. The program, which leads to a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree, imparts knowledge and methods for the production and further development of regenerative energy technology.
The focus is on the following topics:
- Solar energy conversion
- Thermal energy systems
- Electrical energy systems technology
Students are introduced to current research and learn to apply renewable energy technology as a field of future technologies on a large scale. The core competence of graduates of this research-oriented program is to gain new knowledge, generate new technical solutions and implement them in industrial production. Through close contact with commercial enterprises, students can gain a good insight into future practice at an early stage.
