Learning Outcome:The students master the methodologies required for independent scientific work in the field of electrical engineering.
They are informed about the current research projects of their fellow students and have deepened their expertise in a field relevant to them beyond the level of their degree program.
  • Researching and citing literature
    - Access to literature via databases and libraries.
    - Evaluation of the literature found.
    - Citing, refering to and using literature.
    - Research the state of the art for a concrete example.
  • Publishing
    - Forms of publication Journal Publication, Letter, Conference Proceedings.
    - Identification of the relevant publication form and medium.
    - Structure of an article or monograph.
    - Presentation of results and evidence in the technical-scientific field.
    - Criteria in peer review and review procedures.
    - Writing a text in a publishable form for a concrete example.
  • Presenting
    - Structure of a technical-scientific talk.
    - Content and formal design of a talk.
    - Design of visual aids.
    - Audience and external framework.
    - Preparation and presentation of your own 20-minute presentation.
  • Planning and execution of research projects
    - Defining research goals.
    - Working methods and schedules.
    - Documentation of results.
    - Teamwork and cooperation.
    - DFG, BMBF and EU funding programmes.
    - Sketch of a concrete research proposal.
  • Discussion of current research results of all participants of the seminar.
  • If necessary, relevant topics for the students will be addressed in the field of electrical engineering.
Recommended Prerequisites:None
Mandatory Prerequisites:None
Forms of Teaching and Proportion:
  • Seminar / 4 Hours per Week per Semester
  • Self organised studies / 120 Hours
Teaching Materials and Literature:will be presented at the beginning of the module
Module Examination:Continuous Assessment (MCA)
Assessment Mode for Module Examination:
  •  Presentation of a literature search, ca. 5 min (25%)
  •  Writing a scientific text in the form of a publication, 2-3 pages (25%)
  •  Presentation of a scientific talk, 20 minutes (25%)
  •  Drafting a project outline (25%)

The partial performances are weighted equally for the calculation of the overall grade.
Evaluation of Module Examination:Performance Verification – graded
Limited Number of Participants:None
Part of the Study Programme:
  • Master (research-oriented) / Elektrotechnik / PO 2014
  • Master (research-oriented) / Elektrotechnik / PO 2019
  • Master (research-oriented) / Elektrotechnik / PO 2023
  • Abschluss im Ausland / Informatik / keine PO
  • Master (research-oriented) / Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen / PO 2019
Remarks:The module is aimed at students who work independently on a research project, e.g. in the context of an assistance activity or a graduation thesis.

In the seminar „Student Group Work“ the students prepare together the presentations in the advanced seminar and impart to each other the technical bases as well as scientific approaches and results of their own research activity.
