Please note, that the courses "Seminar in Energy Economics" and "Project in Energy Economics" are limited concerning the number of participants.

If you choose courses out of the same block, it is ensured that they do not intersect in the time schedule.

The courses out of block 3 can be added in any case. They usually do not cause problems in the time schedule.

English taught facultative modules in the field of energy economics will take place every semester as well. But they vary from semester to semester.

An exact description of the course content can be found here.

German Language Courses

Ulm University of Applied Sciences is offering an intensive German language course for students with no or little knowledge of German. The course takes place before the start of the program and runs two weeks. Students with previous knowledge of German can take part in an introductory one-week block course to refresh their German and learn about aspects of culture and daily life. During the term, the Semester Program in Energy Engineering is also accompanied by parallel German language classes at different levels.
