During the MSc programme in Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technology (HYTEC), you will study energy systems based on hydrogen and fuel cell technology.The programme covers production of hydrogen, application of hydrogen in fuel cells and interaction with other energy systems.

Hydrogen technology is a very important aspect in future industrial energy supply systems but also in the transport industry and energy storage systems.The teaching of the programme is carried out in an innovative, dynamic and challenging environment through a combination of research-based courses, team-based project work and a high degree of interaction with industrial partners and energy supply companies.

The companies take an active part in providing project proposals for the problem-oriented project work, guest lectures and visits to the companies.The programme provides knowledge of modelling and optimisation of the thermal, electrical and chemical subsystems. Career opportunities include R&D departments in major companies working with hydrogen and fuel cells based technologies and systems.The teaching is carried out in English because many international students are enrolled in the study programme.


Admission to the MSc programme in Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technology presupposes a BSc degree in Thermal Energy Engineering, Thermal Processes or similar.

In addition, documentation will be required to verify that your proficiency in English is at an acceptable level.
