Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Industrial Engineering course with specialisation in Electrical Energy Engineering at RWTH sets itself apart with an engineering specialisation in Electrical Energy Engineering that is pursued from the start of the course. This means that in terms of Electrical Energy Engineering, graduates of the course are practically at the level of an Engineer in this specialisation area. Combined with the Economics content, the degree course offers a very comprehensive academic education.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The Faculty is a member of T.I.M.E. Association for the implementation of international dual-degree programmes. As such, it offers dual degrees with ten partner universities. In addition, the Faculty has numerous ERASMUS+ agreements as well as special agreements with five other universities in Asia and South America for the exchange of students and teachers. The Faculty is involved in numerous partnership agreements with international universities that the university maintains.
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    KTH Stockholm, Sweden; Chalmers University Gothenburg, Sweden; NTNU Trondheim, Norway; Aalto University, Finland; TU Delft, Netherlands; University Cork, Ireland; CTU Prague, Czech Republic; UP Madrid, Spain; TU Istanbul, Turkey
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Laboratory practicals are an integral and important part of the course. They offer students the opportunity to use their own experiments to process the course content in a practical and clear manner and apply their knowledge creatively. The laboratories are supervised by individual chairs or jointly by several chairs and are under constant development. The simulation systems analysis is one of the most important tools of the future industrial engineer. Every chair has its own state-of-the-art IT equipment, without which it would not be possible to carry out research to this high standard.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The Faculty of Energy and Environment covers the following research focuses: Electrical Systems and Energy Management; Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage System Technology; Power Electronics and Electrical Drives; High Voltage Engineering; Electromagnetic Energy Conversion; Automation of Complex Power Systems; In the field of Economics, the following specialisations are included: Energy, Mobility and Environment; Managerial and Organisational Economics; Operations Research and Management; Technology, Innovation, Marketing and Entrepreneurship.
  • Website with further information on research activities
  • Support for founders
    These activities are organised by as separate department as part of the university’s central administration.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    The Faculty has a representative for students with health issues.
  • Other special features
    Possible careers for BSc graduates. graduates find positions with operational tasks, while the key areas for MSc graduates are mainly found in the scientific and strategic areas of companies. Because they have a double qualification, graduates work at the interface between technology and economics; as all-rounders with a good overview, they are at home in either field. Their dual training makes them employable in a range of positions; they are also able to absorb a range of perspectives and to convey these to participants in the corresponding fields.
