Master of Science in Engineering (MSE)

Here you find information about the Master of Science in Engineering MSE degree program at the Institute for Energy Systems IES.

Working and Studying at the Institute

The Institute of Energy Systems offers dedicated individuals with a recognized bachelor's degree the opportunity to work in addition to MSE studies at the Institute of Energy Systems in the areas of thermal energy systems or power electronics.

Working at the institute offers the following advantages:

  • Entry into professional life as an engineer (for example, after completing a bachelor's degree)
  • Semester and master theses with local industrial companies
  • Direct application of the mediated knowledge from the study in the daily work
  • Working on interesting, practical projects
  • Possibility to do part of your studies abroad

Examples of the Study Program

In designing the MSE study, the student is quite free. Below are three model examples that are commonly used at our institute:

  • Model 1: Six semesters of part-time study with 50% as a research assistant at the IES or at another employer.
  • Model 2: Four semesters of part-time study with 50% as a research assistant at the IES or at another employer. One semester full-time study for the Master's thesis.
  • Model 3: Full-time study in three semesters.

If part of your studies is completed abroad, the duration of your studies for part-time studies may be shorter.
