Things to know during your studies
Everything about practice, recognitions and the Environmental Oriented Elective Subject.
Interdisciplinary Internship (IP)
Interdisciplinary internships (IPs), which are not "only" compulsory courses, should represent the entire knowledge of the study programme. In these internships, which can be organized by the students' own commitment, the possibility to implement the acquired knowledge shall be guaranteed.
In group work, a concrete, usually environmentally related problem is dealt with and a solution is worked on. In addition, the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team should be trained, since four different areas of specialization are combined in the ESS programme. Thus, on the one hand, ESS students are confronted with tasks that students of the respective specialization hardly ever come into contact with, and on the other hand, numerous new opportunities develop as a result.
The Environmental Oriented Elective Subject (uoWf).
The Environmental Oriented Elective Subject module is designed to provide knowledge from other disciplines relevant to the environment. It should consist of a bundle of uniform courses, which should, however, have some environmental relevance. The chosen courses should shed light on the subject matter of this subject in depth.
In principle, it is possible to choose a bundle of courses from the fields of
- Mathematics and Statistics
- Systems Science
- one of the ESS specializations
to be chosen.
In addition, students are free to take environmentally relevant courses from studies established under §54 UG 2002.
However, prior approval of the chosen composition by the Curricula Commission for Environmental Systems Sciences is necessary in any case.
Forms of environmentally oriented electives are to be handed in for TU students at the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering, Process Engineering and Biotechnology
ATTENTION: After approval of the uoWf and if nothing changes in the elective bundle, an additional recognition must be made. Once the uoWf has been approved, a change is no longer possible!
Course swap for ESS / MGT
In the new Management Curriculum, there is the possibility to exchange courses for others. In doing so, an individual focus is made possible as long as the goal of the degree programme is not affected. It is important that you observe a few points:
- In the sense of an individual setting of priorities, courses with a total scope of at least 6 ECTS and a maximum of 18 ECTS credits are to be substituted.
- Courses from compulsory modules are generally excluded from course substitutions, with the exception of compulsory elective courses (Module F and Module G are recommended).
- The chosen substitute courses must have a meaningful connection. A module designation is to be determined which reflects the individual focus.
- Applications for course substitutions can only be approved if no negatively or positively assessed examination has yet been taken for the courses to be substituted or if an equivalent examination has been recognised.
As part of the Bachelor's degree programme in Environmental Systems Sciences with a specialisation in Management, students can complete a relevant practical course and a career-oriented practical course as part of the free electives to test and apply the acquired knowledge and skills in practice.
The respective dean's offices/examination departments are responsible for recognizing achievements from other fields of study or achievements completed at other educational institutions:
