Course of studies



Duration of study (semesters)






Description of course of studies

The availability of environmentally friendly, safe, reliable and affordable energy and raw materials is a basic requirement for a high standard of living. Global climate change and the shortage of fossil fuels (going hand-in-hand with significant price increases), the phasing out of nuclear energy and the uncertainty in politically unstable regions all shape our public discussion. Major challenges and changes are coming our way!

Energy and Process Engineering, the study of energy and material conversion processes, plays a central role in developing sustainable, ecological and economical solutions. Increasing the efficiency of turbo machines – gas and steam turbines, windmills, hydroelectric power plants – in creating energy is an important issue, as is reducing fuel usage for cars and airplanes. The use of new, sustainable fuels and the further development of solar energy and nuclear technology are creating plenty of work for energy engineers. In process engineering, people are developing processes and devices to create and/or convert resources using chemical, physical or biological processes.

In addition to its technological and economic relevance, the field of energy, propulsion and process engineering is full of exciting and challenging topics and approaches. For instance, advances in the areas of computer simulation and optical measurement technologies allow us to research fluid thermodynamic processes with a level of detail and depth that would have been impossible just a few years ago.

After completing the course of study, energy and process engineers can expect to enter a field of application that is wide-ranging, interdisciplinary and extremely significant.

Application and admission


Online-application: http://www.tum.de/en/studies/application-and-acceptance/

Application period for winter semester: 01.04. - 31.05.
Application period for summer semester: 01.11. – 31.12.
Our online application portal will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment.

You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline, i.e. before 31.05. for winter semester and before 31.12. for summer semester.

You must submit all documents you need for enrollment before 15.09. for winter semester or before 15.03. for summer semester. If individual documents for enrollment are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.

Please check your TUMonline account regularly to see if we have any questions concerning your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.
