Renewable Energies

Master´s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien


The Master’s Degree Program for the Energy Systems of the Future

The focus is on energy technology and energy industry issues: the expansion of renewable energies and their integration into sustainable energy systems, smart grids for efficient energy distribution and feed-in, the coordination of generation and consumption as well as holistic approaches to energy supply. Savings potentials are developed as well as possible applications for renewable energies and the necessary technical and economic-legal framework conditions.

Students Learn to:

  • Analyze complex issues related to energy systems and individual facilities, cities or neighborhoods, and devise solutions.
  • Analyze energy-efficient, sustainable, and complex energy systems and develop concepts for optimal use of various energy sources.
  • Propose measures to adapt existing networks (heating-cooling-electricity) for the integration of decentralized generation plants and to ensure a high level of supply security and supply quality.
  • Analyze different storage technologies and present their integration into energy grids correctly dimensioned with all essential system-technical measures.
  • Describe ecological relationships in relation to energy-related issues and present impacts in energy systems due to anthropogenic interventions and select measures for their reduction.
  • To elaborate a supply and demand side management for an energy system (electricity, heating/cooling, gas).
  • To optimize the use of different generation plants from an economic-ecological point of view.
  • To elaborate and apply measures to increase the efficiency of plant components, especially those of thermal energy plants.
  • Analyze existing energy systems and develop concepts for the optimal use of different energy sources.
  • Quantify the effects of renovation measures in buildings on the overall energy system.
Energy systems in urban areas are facing major changes – key words: climate change and the replacement of the fossil energy system. This holds many opportunities for new ideas.

Career Prospects


With their knowledge, graduates are perfectly trained for the sectors of energy production, energy management construction/building technology, heating-ventilation-air conditioning technology, for energy agencies, environmental technology, or urban planning and urban energy concepts.


You work, for example, as a technical-scientific employee, project engineer, measurement and control technician, process engineer, energy system concept developer, research manager or as a civil engineer.


Typical tasks include the development of energy concepts in the field of energy-relevant urban planning, the creation of control concepts for generation and distribution plants or the creation of municipal environmental management systems.


Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and allow students to specialize or focus on topics in more detail or to expand their existing expertise.

You must meet subject-matter requirements to be admitted to the Renewable Energies master’s degree program. Prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree from a UAS in a relevant subject matter or an equivalent degree from a recognized post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits) in Austria or another country.

If basic equivalence has been established except for a few missing prerequisites, the program director can require students to take exams to establish full equivalence. These exams are taken during the master’s program.

Preparation Possibility

The e-genius platform, co-developed by the degree program, offers numerous free learning fields ranging from renewable energy to urban development.
