Elective Courses

Main content

These courses offer a variety of topics dealing with energy technology and economics. A minimum of 19 ECTS are covered by the elective courses (averaging 4 semester courses). There are some 50 elective courses in the catalogue to date. 

With the aim to fill the gaps left after undergraduate education, tutors may include bachelor courses within the recommended specialisation courses. The number of ECTS, out of the minimum requirement of 90, which can be obtained by means of bachelor courses, is limited to 6.

Note that some courses might be offered in German and participation for non-German speaking students needs the explicit approval of the teacher.
