The practice-oriented PEET master's programme is a three-semester consecutive programme that focuses on internationality and the application of modern teaching methods. Courses are taught entirely in English, and there are options to go abroad for periods of study and for completion of the master's thesis. The master's thesis is generally completed in industry or at a research institution and is supervised by university lecturers. Particularly strong priority is given to the teaching of core competencies. The master's programme develops advanced skills in simulation and management and deepens knowledge in the area of process, energy and environmental engineering. Soft skills are also of vital importance for graduates to be professionally qualified for leadership tasks in companies and at research institutions.
Process Engineering and Energy Technology
Process engineering and energy technology is of paramount importance for our society, as it provides answers to vital questions: How can we replace fossil fuels by renewable raw materials? How does seawater become drinking water? How can polluted exhaust emissions be turned into climate-compatible, environmentally friendly exhaust air? Overall, process engineering investigates and develops technical processes that convert substances according to their properties and composition into usable intermediate and end products using chemical, physical or biological means. It also includes the development, construction and maintenance of the necessary apparatuses and equipment. The master's programme in Process Engineering and Energy Technology (PEET) offers graduates of relevant bachelor's programmes (e.g. bioengineering, chemical engineering or process engineering) a more advanced level of qualification.

Your future after graduation
Activities, research and professional profile
The constantly increasing demands on variety, quality and quantity of process engineering products and the need for ever-greater economic efficiency create interesting engineering tasks in research and practice. Process engineering will continue to face fascinating challenges in the future when it comes to setting up even more resource-saving, environmentally friendly and safe plants and equipment for the production of marketable products. Process engineers are increasingly working in an international environment, so to face these challenges, they work on promising solutions in interdisciplinary teams.
The international master's programme in Process Engineering and Energy Technology at Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences takes all of these criteria into account. Graduates have the opportunity to enter a senior civil service career in the public sector or a senior management position in production and development in the private sector. The master's degree also qualifies students to move on to a doctoral thesis.

Entering to future Process Engineering and Energy Technology with Process Engineering and Energy Technology
Process engineering and energy technology intersects the disciplines of mechanical engineering, chemistry and biology. Its interdisciplinary nature opens up a wide scope of professional fields of activity in production, research and development, the materials conversion industry, and plant/apparatus construction, as well as with evaluating and assessment organisations or engineering service providers. Students learn individual basic operations and how to combine and integrate them into complete systems. There is more to this field than just the scientific and technical dimensions. Economic and ecological sustainability are of also of decisive importance for manufacturing processes and the goods produced, not to mention compliance with the regulatory requirements. Consequently, process engineering is also indispensable for the structuring and further development of climate and environmental protection and of materials and energy efficiency.
