Compulsory Module 1: Chemical Reaction Technology I (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students acquire sound theoretical knowledge of the basics of (large-scale) chemical engineering technology, mathematical calculation and treatment of multicomponent systems, the equipment and components of a (large) chemical plants, the process steps of catalysed chemical reactions and the output and separation of product streams.
Compulsory Module 2: Thermal Process Engineering I (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students know relevant thermal unit operations and interpret them graphically as well as numerically in consideration of the essential operating parameters.
Compulsory Module 3: Heat and Mass Transfer (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students acquire knowledge for the fundamental treatment of substance-converting processes and for the calculation of the material and energy balance. Students are familiar with complex (one- and multi-dimensional) processes of material and heat transport processes and they can scale them into process engineering processes using numerical methods.
Compulsory Module 9: Biochemical Process Engineering (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students are able to apply the methods of mechanical, chemical and thermal process engineering to technically used biological reactions taking into account the specific conditions of biochemical processes. The students are able to describe bio-reaction processes mathematically.
Compulsory Module 11: Chemical Reaction Technology Laboratory (7.5 ECTS-Credits, 5 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: positive completion of compulsory module 1
Learning Outcome: The students apply their theoretical knowledge to practical systems and acquire skills in project and time management as well as team dynamics.
Compulsory Module 12: Applied Fluid Mechanics (2.5 ECTS-Credits, 2 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students learn the basics of fluid mechanics and viscosity with regard to CFD-modelling and their relation to other transport phenomena.
Compulsory Module 13: Measurement and Control Technology (2.5 ECTS-Credits, 2 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students acquire knowledge of modern and continuous measuring methods in technical systems, they can read process diagrams and evaluate the relevance of control methods.
Compulsory Module 15: Computerised Process Engineering (5 ECTS-Credits, 3 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students advance their theoretical and practical knowledge of process engineering processes using computer-based methods.
Compulsory Module 16: Master's Thesis (7.5 ECTS-Credits) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: After successful completion of this module, the students will be able to write a brief summary of the content of the planned Master's Thesis (abstract), to outline an antici-pated schedule and to conclude a written Master's Thesis agreement.
Agreement on the topic, the scope and the form of the Master's Thesis on the basis of a brief summary of the contents (abstract) as well as agreement on the work processes and the study progress. Planning of an appropriate time frame for the completion of the Master's Thesis.
Compulsory Module 17: Master's Thesis Defense (2.5 ECTS-Credits) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: positive completion of all other compulsory and elective modules as well as the Master's Thesis
Learning Outcome: The students can present and defend the results of their Master's Thesis in the form of a scientific lecture.
Presentation and defense of the Master's Thesis (Defensio) within the scope of a 20-minute scientific lecture followed by a scientific discussion and questioning by an examination board
