Within the Complementary Qualification at the beginning of the Master's programme, all admitted students acquire the core competences from Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Chemistry, in order to ensure that graduates of the different Bachelor's programmes receive the necessary knowledge for the Specialisation. Depending on their Bachelor's degree, students have to take three modules here, which are determined by the admissions committee on the basis of the existing knowledge.
You decide on one of the three specialisation areas, which represent the sub-areas of Sustainable Energy Engineering:
- (Electro-) Chemical Energy Engineering
- Physical Energy Engineering
- Energy- and Resource-efficient Processes
In particular, the courses in the Specialisation area are to be further developed in the spirit of research-based learning. Research-based learning should be understood as an introduction to science with scientific reflection and forms of work. A laboratory and a course on simulation must be selected.
The Interdisciplinary Electives ensure that you will dare to "think outside the box" during your studies. Soft Skills such as presentation techniques, teamwork or project management can be acquired here, but courses can also be chosen which embed Sustainable Energy Engineering in a superordinate social, legal or even historical context. Within this module, students can choose courses freely. A list of recommended courses is provided.
