Course structure

During the four terms, course modules designed to follow on from each other take place in the areas of simulation as well as measurement and control engineering for wind power plants. The core competencies from these fields are closely linked to the other modules in the course and enable students to understand wind energy techniques as a coherent system and to put it into practice in the shape of projects. By going into depth in the area of programmes for control process simulation, application of measuring and sensor technology as well as the teaching of business management and safety systems, students are able to understand how onshore and offshore wind energy plants function and to transfer this knowledge to industrial project work, thus contributing to its optimisation and further development. To prepare students for employment in management positions, the topics of project management, personnel management as well as profitability and finance are studied in depth. In the first and third terms, students can complete two compulsory module options per term. The fourth term is the practical phase, a preparatory phase for the Master thesis and the actual Master thesis itself, including the final oral examination.The course qualifies graduates for scientific and engineering work and method and relays theoretical/analytical as well as practice-oriented skills which enable students to approach new situations openly and creatively.
