learning outcome

With the Master's thesis, the students are able to work independently on a given extensive engineering task within a set time frame.
The students were able to deepen and expand their previously acquired skills in a specific technical topic. They are thus able to thoroughly familiarize themselves with a topic and organize their own thoughts on the problem. Using the theoretical and methodological competences acquired so far, they are able to work on the problem independently according to scientific methods and to classify it in a scientific context. They are able to assess a concrete problem and document it according to scientific standards.
Through the analysis of technical literature regarding the task and their own scientific work, they are trained to apply their acquired knowledge and skills to new systems and the problem.
Students have been able to acquire problem-solving skills and are able to evaluate and classify their own work.
The students are able to present the concern of their worked scientific topic in a lecture in front of a general and/or professionally involved audience, to present the research results in a condensed form in the context of a final colloquium and to both present and defend the gained knowledge in the scientific discussion. They are able to pay attention to comments and appreciate criticism and are able to critically question their work. They are able to pay attention to comments and appreciate criticism and are able to critically challenge their work.
They have learned to present and substantiate their own findings and results in a clear and comprehensible manner and are thus able to write scientifically sound texts on other topics as well.
