Specialised Modules Sustainable Energy Systems and Circular Process Engineering
The specialised modules are composed of one specialised laboratory (5 CP), 2 compulsory modules (10 CP) and 5 compulsory elective modules (25 CP).
Compulsory modules in the specialisation Sustainable Energy Systems and Circular Process Engineering are:
- Numerical Methods for Internal Aerodynamics, 5 CP (course catalogue No. 138270)
- Thermodynamics of Mixtures, 5 CP (course catalogue No. 138040)
The compulsory elective modules can be chosen from a range of modules offered in the curriculum of the specialisation.
The class schedule and location of the individual classes can be found in the course catalogue.
For the choice of compulsory elective modules, we recommend using an elective profile. For the elective profiles, overlap-free courses and examination dates are aimed for. The choice of compulsory elective modules from different profiles is also permissible within a specialisation. In this case, however, no organisational optimisation (overlap-free events, examination dates) can be guaranteed.
STEM elective area
STEM modules may be elected from the range of STEM related courses in the master’s curriculum of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), another STEM faculty of the RUB, but also from the range of courses offered by STEM faculties of other universities. The examination board decides on admissibility upon application.
Non-STEM elective area
Non-STEM modules may be elected from the range of non-STEM related master’s courses of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering or other faculties/ Universities as long as the admission is allowed. The elective module should not contain STEM content and be useful for engineering education in general. The examination board decides on admissibility upon application.
The Master’s thesis (30 CP) is intended to determine whether the candidate has acquired sound knowledge and the ability to independently apply sophisticated scientific methods. The students should be enabled to critically classify scientific findings as well as to think and act responsibly and in an interdisciplinary manner and should be able to analyze complex problems in mechanical engineering and independently develop solutions to these.
