Module Number: 13008
Module Title:Research Module II
  Forschungsmodul II
Department: Faculty 1 - Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Seibold, Götz
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: Every semester
Credits: 30
Learning Outcome:After participating in Research Module II, students have the ability to familiarize themselves with the diverse application and research-related fields of activity and special expertise, and to deal with the frequently changing tasks that they will encounter in their later professional lives. They are able to work in a team, have individual skills such as diligence, perseverance, time management and initiative and can hold a technical discussion within the context of international science.
Contents:Research module II consists of a project planning phase, a laboratory internship and a working group seminar. It is usually carried out in the same subject area in which the master's thesis is to be written.
Under the guidance of a supervisor, the students deal with a scientific question in this field. The supervisor is a university lecturer at the BTU or a scientist at a non-university institute. In the second case, the course director names a mentor from the physics department at the beginning of the module, who will be involved in the assessment.

Research module II can include participation in the DPG spring conference.
