Bachelor Hydrogen Technology Transnational (BWTT)

Hydrogen - a fuel of the future ➝ Hydrogen engineer, a profession with a future

Brief information overview

A successful energy transition requires the combination of environmental compatibility, supply security and affordability with innovative and intelligent climate protection. Therefore, alternatives to the currently used fossil fuels are urgently needed. In the context of the necessary cross-sector decarbonisation, hydrogen plays a central role in achieving the completion of the energy transition.

Hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier. For example, it can be used as a basis for synthetic fuels or to generate electric energy directly through fuel cells. Furthermore, hydrogen represents an ideal storage medium for regeneratively generated electric energy from photovoltaic or wind turbines, as it enables flexible and long-term storage of energy. Hydrogen technology is a key technology and a pioneer towards a carbon-neutral era.

Due to the special physical and chemical properties of hydrogen, increased elaborateness in the development and, above all, the operational monitoring of facilities for hydrogen production, transport, storage, and utilization is essential. Therefore, highly skilled professionals are urgently needed who can meet the technical challenges of hydrogen in plant development and operation, thereby contributing to the increase in competitiveness in international energy markets. Hydrogen is also an important topic in education.

The Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS) from Germany offers a transnational bachelor's degree programme in Hydrogen Technology at the German Jordanian University (GJU) in Amman, Jordan, in order to educate engineers in Jordan and Germany for the design, construction, and operation of hydrogen facilities. First, students take courses at the GJU in a pre-year and then enroll at the THWS. They graduate with a German university degree, which facilitates their permanent residence in Germany for an initial period of 1.5 years and their entry into a career as engineers in a company.
