Course description

The MSc program "Energy Science and Technology" delves into cutting-edge technologies for energy conversion and storage, grounded in the scientific principles that support these advancements. This research-driven program emphasizes electrochemical energy conversion and storage, particularly in fuel cells and batteries. Conducted entirely in English, it caters to both international and German students who hold a Bachelor of Science, preferably in chemistry or physics, or a Bachelor of Engineering, ideally in chemical or electrical engineering. Current lithium-ion batteries, commonly found in smartphones and laptops, have nearly reached their peak storage capacity. This limitation drives experts in Ulm's Science City to explore the next generation of batteries. The program's international and interdisciplinary nature ensures a diverse learning environment, fostering innovation and collaboration among students from various backgrounds.
