Hydrogen Technology

Hydrogen technology is a key technology and paving the way to the CO2-neutral age.
Hydrogen is already used today as a climate-friendly source of energy in industrial application and mobility. Motivated by the energy transition and the associated shift away from fossil fuels, the relevance of hydrogen (H2) is growing rapidly. Therefore, hydrogen engineers will be urgently needed in the future.

Studies in Hydrogen Technology are divided into several sections. Courses of the 1st semester contain, among others, the basics of mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanics, and thermodynamics. Based on this, specific courses on hydrogen technology will follow. The topics of fuel cells, H2 production, as well as H2 storage and transport will be dealt with in particular detail. In addition, a number of optional courses offer the possibility to accentuate your studies according to your personal interest and career aims. Modern computer technologies and the consideration of economic and ecologic aspects are also part of the degree programme. The further development of the students’ own personality and of meta-disciplinary qualifications (“soft skills”) is promoted by several projects throughout the programme

The practical semester represents the bridge between theory and practice. Modern, generously equipped laboratories and connections to the industry allow for an advanced and practice-oriented education.
