The Technical University of Berlin Master’s degree program in Germany proffer advanced education for students and young professionals holding a Bachelor’s degree or academic that is equivalent in engineering or natural sciences.
The areas covered during the course of studies are tailor-made on the basis of research projects and enduring experiences of Technische Universität Berlin in the MENA region.
On the successful completion of the program, students will graduate with an official Masters of Science degree in Energy Engineering from Technische Universität Berlin.
Energy is a key factor for the advancement of countries, facilitating their economic growth and shaping their environments to the needs of human society. Based on the increasing requirements for energy and its carbon-based generation, a range of serious problems have evolved.
Which include exploitation of resources, air pollution, and global warming. Pollution is successfully dealt with since the 2nd half of the 20th century and is a lessening problem. Research at TU Berlin visage the challenge of how to find innovative concepts for a safe, sustainable, and economic energy supply in the future.
TU Berlin (German: Technische Universität Berlin, known as TU Berlin) is a research university located in Berlin, Germany. The university was established in the year 1879 and it is one of the most influential educational institutions in Europe.
It is known for its highly ranked engineering programmes, especially in mechanical engineering and engineering management.
TU Berlin is a member of TU9, an integrated society of the largest and most remarkable German institutes of technology and of the Top Industrial Managers for Europe network that allows for student exchanges between leading engineering schools.
The university is a home of two innovation centers designated by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
The university is famous for having been the first to offer the now very popular course Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen (which the university translates as Industrial Engineering and Management).
The university had abstracted the course as a response to demands by industrialists to offer a course that provides their offspring with the required technical and management expertise to run a company. Initially offered in winter term 1926 / 27 it is the oldest and one of the most influential programmes of its kind.
The Technical University of Berlin has one of the main proportions of international students in Germany.
The University covers 604,000 m², dispersed in various locations in Berlin. Its main campus is situated in the borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. The seven (7) schools of the university have over 33,933 students enrolled in 90 subjects as of October 2015.
