Energy Informatics Master's Degree Programmes, full-time

Know-how to create intelligent IT solutions for smart grids, smart city infrastructures & energy supply systems

Energy is the underlying heartbeat of the global economy – a critical factor in the production of nearly all goods and services in the modern world. Clearly, given the critical role of energy, the driving imperatives in any economy are ensuring security of supply, maintaining competitiveness and overseeing the transition to a low-carbon future.

Key requirements in this respect are the strategic management of supply and improving its overall generation and distribution. Impacting on these challenging goals will be a variety of factors, including advances in renewables, e-mobility and green technologies, to name only a few. Managing this changing environment is no easy task. That will require intelligent IT solutions and therefore well-educated IT experts able to design and/or operate future smart grids, smart city infrastructures and enhanced energy supply systems.

Energy Informatics (ENI) is the application of information technologies to this highly demanding field and the focus of this English-taught Master's degree programme.

Did you know that ... ... most European countries have already started their Smart Metering roll-outs or will start them very soon? Or that Smart Meters are only one small aspect within the grid when it comes to the transformation into Smart Grids?
