The energy market is one of today´s most fast paced, decisive and profitable industries and crucial to both the global economy, the environment and our future society as a whole. Climate and economic changes, public opinion, technological progress and regulation shape unforeseen challenges and opportunities. This situation calls for new solutions to be delivered by highly skilled and appropriately trained experts with an all-embracing overview, an international outlook and the will to create a true impact. Due to its economic, entrepreneurial and industrial strength as well as its successful and progressive energy policies, the —Energiewende—, Germany stands out as a front runner in the global energy transition.
In this module, students review and gain more in-depth general technical knowledge and knowledge of energy technologies and systems in the context of current developments taking into account social responsibility and sustainable development. The module also covers the most important technological insights, and the technological foundations of the subsequent modules are explained. Students will be able to define and evaluate various procedures and apply them to selected cases in the energy sector.
This module is an introduction to economics. It covers the most important principles of economics taking into account social responsibility and sustainable development. The module engages with the latest research and encourages a critical and reflective approach in providing a foundation in economics for subsequent modules.
