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.
This Master’s degree programme provides technical, business and legal expertise for the development of future energy systems, especially in the areas ofSoftware Systems (SCADA, ERP, Business Support, Operations Support, Meter Data Management, Device Data Management, Energy Data Management, Geographic Information Systems, Cloud Computing, Big Data Power generation, distribution, consumers (renewable energy, energy storage, charging stations, buildings, lighting, etc.) Field Components (meters, load control, gateways …) Communication Technology (Radio Frequency / Powerline) IT Security Home and Building Automation International legislation and standardization Project and Systems Engineering Processes and Process Modelling
Additional interdisciplinary elective courses and seminars are also available; they vary from semester to semester.
Energy Informatics graduates will not only work at energy suppliers and network operators, but also in associated sectors. Even energy-intensive industries such as the automotive industry and metal processing companies can benefit from their expertise. Other fields include the conception, planning and implementation of IT systems for Smart Grids, Smart Cities, e-mobility and industrial plants. You will be working in a highly dynamic field with excellent career prospects.
