M.Sc. Power Engineering (M-PE)



Master of Science in Power Engineering (M-PE)

Programme Commencement

winter and summer semester

Standard Duration

4 semesters (2 years)

Place of Studies

Campus Duisburg 


Accredited by ASIIN


The Power Engineering Master's degree aims to prepare students for demanding roles in management, research and academia in the area of power engineering. Building on the broad principles gained from a relevant Bachelor's degree, the Master's degree will deepen awareness of:

  • Electromagnetic field theory as well as the higher and numerical mathematics required for technically demanding subjects;
  • The technical subjects that provide the basis for demanding roles in electrical engineering and information technology;
  • The technical subjects required for demanding roles in the areas of electrical power engineering and automation technology.

The course particularly aims to:

  • Introduce students to challenging areas of theory;
  • Develop the ability to solve complex issues that require the comprehensive theory-based tools of modelling, synthesis and simulation.

Engineers with a Master's degree can expect to find challenging work in companies of all sizes in the areas of project planning, product development (components and systems), research and sales. A Master's is also a prerequisite for a doctorate.

Graduates will:

  • Develop knowledge of advanced theories;
  • Develop advanced knowledge and skills in the area of power engineering;
  • Develop advanced knowledge and skills in the area of electrical engineering and information technology;
  • Be able to pursue their preference for a commercial or academic career via their choice of electives;
  • Have an enhanced general education with advanced language skills in German or English as well as increased employability from learning team-working and communication skills.
  • Gain experience of applying scientific methods to deal independently with problems of electrical and power engineering (or its application in another engineering discipline) within a specific timeframe, and be able to present the issues clearly.
