What will I learn?

The Masters course PEESE provides a comprehensive competence in process and plant engineering, construction and management. Typical employers are international companies operating in various sectors of energy, chemical engineering, food industry, power plant engineering, environmental technology or building service.

The main effect of the course is to develop the ability of the students to understand complex processes as a system, to analyze them and to handle instruments to control and to optimize processes and solve problems. This will be complemented by a framework of intercultural competence and management skills.

Graduates from the PEESE program have excellent job opportunities. The international degree opens career chances in many areas of systems engineering worldwide. Tasks in designing new systems include synthesis, simulation, validation, control and optimization. Computer-aided approaches become increasingly important. The PEESE program equips students with a profound knowledge to handle systems development procedures in the global environment.

The duration of the PEESE program is 4 semesters. This is accomplished by providing high-quality, motivated international students with intensive tutoring, assistance, regular meetings with supervisors and clearly defined targets. The program concludes with an internship and a master thesis.

The program includes technical and managerial courses focusing on energy, process, and environmental engineering. The module blocks include process synthesis, process simulation, process control, process optimization, management, and intercultural competences. In addition, elective courses should be selected.
