Sustainable Technology Solutions

Learning Goals

The students will learn the different issues of sustainable questions in various fields of technology. We will focus on topics "Sustainable Energy Systems" and "Sustainable Technology Solutions". The students understand the basics in technologies and know specific applications in the field of energy systems, material flow management, and zero emission technology. The lecture series is divided in two separate course lines. Additionally, there will be excursions to several regional companies. Also, simulation games will be integrated into the module.
