New course “Hydrogen Systems and Renewable Energies” is starting next winter semester

The Westfälische Hochschule (Westphalian University of Applied Science) is expanding its range of courses and is starting the new bachelor's degree program "Hydrogen Systems and Renewable Energies" in Gelsenkirchen in the coming winter semester 2024/2025.

Gelsenkirchen - In view of the increasing demand for sustainable and renewable energy sources, the university is responding to the urgent need for well-trained engineers in the field of hydrogen and alternative energy technologies.

The bachelor's degree program "Hydrogen Systems and Renewable Energies" is aimed at prospective students who would like to actively engage with hydrogen production, storage and other renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics and wind power. Under the support of experienced experts, they develop technologically sustainable solutions to master the challenges of the energy transition. The course can be completed as an undergraduate in six semesters or as a training, practical and career-integrated variant in eight semesters.

The course content includes mathematical, technical, scientific and engineering basics. During the course of your studies, specialized knowledge of hydrogen technologies, energy conversion and renewable energies is built up. In addition, students can set individual priorities through elective subjects. Highly specialized laboratories are available at the Gelsenkirchen campus for studies.

There are a variety of career prospects for graduates, e.g. B. in energy agencies, energy supply companies, the automotive industry, space and aviation technology as well as in authorities and organizations.

“With the new course of study, we are focusing on saving fossil fuels and ensuring security of supply through the use of hydrogen and renewable energies,” explains Prof. Dr. Bernd Kriegsmann, President of the Westphalian University. “It is a forward-looking training course for everyone who wants to actively shape a sustainable energy future.”
