Course of Study
The Standard Duration for this degree course is 2 years (4 semester). Qualifications (completed modules) in an equivalent degree course might be acknowledged for this degree course.
This Master's Programme is based on a modular structure. Interdisciplinary Modules in mathematics, electrical engineering, physics and chemistry cover fundamental aspects of natural sciences. The modules 'process automation' and 'process engineering' convey subject-specific, in-depth content and will be complemented by project work and elective modules. The integration of current, research-oriented topics such as 'New Materials', 'Micro Process Engineering', 'On-line Measuring Methods for disperse systems' and elective modules in non-technology areas, e.g. 'Material Flow Management' enable students to choose sophisticated foci.
The fourth semester is reserved for the Master thesis. With this final dissertation students demonstrate their ability to independently resolve a subject-related problem by applying scientific research methods within a given time frame. Students have 6 months to complete their thesis.
