Alumni Voices

Alumni Voice Energy Engineering and Management

„The program covers various areas (...), not only energy sources and supply but also the economics aspects. The interesting fact about the course is that the lecturers are from both the university and industry. Hence, not only do I gain the theoretical background but also some insights of the real industry, which includes a couple of excursions to running power plants.“
