Job opportunities with energy technology

If you want to do something good for the environment and specialize in efficient and environmentally friendly energy generation, the energy technology course is exactly the right one for you. Here everything revolves around the regenerative energy supply through innovative bio, wind and solar energy. With a degree in energy technology, you will be in great demand on the job market, because after all, you know better than anyone that energy resources are not endless. For example, you can get your energy technology career going if you concentrated on solar energy during your studies. You will later have careers in the field of power plant construction, heating technology or photovoltaics to choose from - they all deal with generating electricity with the help of solar radiation. These jobs are also well paid - as a career starter, you can earn between 3100 and 4100 euros gross per month in this industry. If you gain work experience over time, your monthly salary can even increase by up to 5000 euros gross. The power engineering industry is also booming. If you decide to develop and build machines for energy generation, you can expect a gross salary of between 4,000 and 7,000 euros - because here, too, you start with a lower salary, which increases with increasing work experience.


If you just can't get enough of learning and research, you have the opportunity to do a doctorate after completing your master’s degree in power engineering or a comparable degree. A doctorate is by no means atypical for the energy technology course - many graduates also later work in research institutions of private companies and specialize, for example, in the development of hydro or wind power plants.
