Energy and Building Services Engineering (EGT)

The energy and building technology has a high social value, which will increase due to the environmental importance. Both in the planning of new buildings and technical facilities as well as in the refurbishment and optimization of existing buildings, the engineers of the supply engineering are in a sense "the professionals for the technology in the building envelope". Supply means the provision of all necessary energy and media for heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration technology as well as for gas, sanitary and water technology. The disposal of media falls within their remit.

In addition to the increase in efficiency and the rational use of energy, the use of new, alternative energies also plays an important role. The further development and use of modern renewable energy technologies, such as Solar thermal energy, photovoltaics, geothermal energy, combined heat and power plants, heat recovery systems and heat pumps determine the occupational field in the planning and execution of supply systems. The technical objects range from single-family homes to large industrial companies. Central concerns include not only the reduction of operating costs but also the avoidance of emissions and the increase in the quality of use and comfort.

Structure & learning content

The course contents are divided into:

  • Mathematical and scientific fundamentals (for example mathematics, physics, chemistry)
  • Fundamentals of engineering science (for example construction, materials and engineering, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, mechanics, electrical engineering)
  • Engineering applications I (for example applied thermodynamics, energy and refrigeration technology, measurement and control technology, urban water management, components of thermal plants)
  • Engineering applications II (for example sanitary, heating, air-conditioning and gas technology, building management, building automation, regenerative energy technology) with the optional elective areas:
    - Technical building equipment (specialization in sanitary, heating and air conditioning technology)
    - Energy and water supply (deepening in water supply, electrical energy supply and gas networks)
  • Project work on the subjects of gas, sanitary and electrical engineering as well as on the topics of heating and air-conditioning technology for the practice-oriented application of the teaching contents
  • Elective: Digital control technology and open fieldbus systems or
    Energy technical equipment
  • Key qualifications (communication, law, economics, management)
  • Specialization project and bachelor thesis in the final semester

Almost all lectures are accompanied by labs so that you have the opportunity to put what you have learned into practice immediately.

Career prospects

  • Engineering and architecture offices, planning offices for technical building equipment or energy, sanitary and ventilation technology
  • Executing companies of technical building equipment, specialist site management
  • Private and municipal consulting firms and service providers, municipal and state building supervision authorities
  • Plant manufacturers and manufacturers of boilers, heat pumps and much more.
  • Component and system manufacturers of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical engineering and control technology
  • utilities, energy service providers, property management and facility management

International orientation

Projects and bachelor thesis are also offered in English.
You may have the interesting opportunity to acquire a "double degree". Further information can be found in our section "International".

Master's program
