In addition to the competences acquired in a previous Bachelor's degree programme, graduates of the Master's degree programme "Digitalised Energy Systems" possess the following competences:

Professional competences


  • name and identify the principles of informatics and transfer them to current developments in the energy industry,
  • differentiate and contrast in more detail a sub-area of energy informatics in which they have specialised,
  • recognise and assess the techniques and methods to be applied in their special field and their limitations,
  • design solutions for complex and novel, possibly imprecisely defined or unusual tasks from the field of energy informatics and evaluate such designs according to the state of the art,
  • identify, structure and solve problems also in new or emerging areas of their discipline,
  • apply state of the art and innovative methods in investigating and solving problems, drawing on other disciplines where appropriate,
  • relate knowledge from different disciplines to each other and apply these synergies in complex situations,
  • develop complex energy information systems, processes and data models,
  • recognise the limits of current knowledge and technology and contribute to the further scientific and technological development of energy informatics,
  • discuss current developments in energy informatics and assess their relevance for specific tasks and the development of digitalised energy systems in general.

Methodological skills


  • recognise, formalise and investigate problems appropriately using suitable formal methods,
  • design and evaluate one or more approaches to a solution,
  • evaluate tools, technologies and methods and apply them in a differentiated manner,
  • investigate problems on the basis of technical and scientific literature, write an article according to scientific aspects and present their results in a scientific lecture,
  • plan time schedules as well as material and personnel resources,
  • apply project management techniques,
  • creatively develop new and original approaches and methods,
  • reflect on problems, also in new or emerging areas of their discipline, and apply computer science methods to investigate and solve them.

Social skills


  • integrate their skills into team processes,
  • recognise the achievements of others,
  • integrate criticism into their own actions,
  • respect the decisions reached in the team,
  • communicate convincingly orally and in writing with users and experts,
  • identify subtasks and take responsibility for them.

Personal skills

Graduates ...

  • take on leadership tasks in a team,
  • critically follow further developments in informatics in general and in their special field of energy informatics,
  • carry out innovative activities in their professional field successfully and on their own responsibility,
  • recognise the limits of their competence and expand it in a targeted manner,
  • reflect on their self-image and actions from a professional, methodological, social and societal point of view,
  • develop and reflect on their own theories on independently formulated hypotheses,
  • work independently in their professional field.
