Course objectives

The Master of Science in Power Systems and Energy Management equips students with the academic proficiency and hands-on training to understand the challenges and the knowledge required for developing solutions associated with power systems. Students will not only develop in-depth understanding in the areas of power systems but also in energy management. The Master's degree is awarded by Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to demonstrate understanding of the principles relating to power systems and energy management. They are able to handle energy-focused projects independently and work as energy managers in various energy consumer or provider organisations and the energy sector in the governmental organisations or institutions. They are also capable of doing power system related research in institutions.
In addition to a sound and industry-relevant education with practical use for a professional career, one of our ambitions is to immerse students from all over the world into foreign cultures, languages, history and way of life. This is why our programme places its emphasis on:
  • The spirit of international relations
  • Leadership in multinational teams
  • Courses in business administration, management, law, culture, ancient and modern history of both Asia and Europe
  • Exchange programmes to Europe/Germany and Asia
  • An intercultural ambience
  • Optional language courses to learn the German language

It is not easy to find a place to live in Munich - but it is not impossible either! TUM supports students and employees in their search for accommodation, providing personal advice, in-house listings and useful information to ensure that you can quickly find a place to call your own: http://www.tum.de/en/university-life/accommodations/
With high rents and not enough rooms in halls of residence, the Munich rental market is one of the most competitive in Germany - especially for students. The city boasts over 1.4 million inhabitants, with more people moving to Munich every year - many of them attracted by the excellent study opportunities that Munich has to offer.
Student halls of residence usually offer affordable accommodation for students. The Munich Student Union runs most of these halls of residence - more information at http://www.studentenwerk-muenchen.de/en/accommodation/
