Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • Forms of energy conversion and basic definitions
  • Thermal efficiency and thermodynamics of heat engines and heat pump processes and their optimisation
  • Combustion (sysems of combustion and flue gas treatment)
  • Nuclear fission (physical principles and relevant reactor types)
  • Renewable Energy (short overview)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

  • The students are able to describe relevant thermodynamic cycles and compare them with each other as well as to select a suitable cycle for a given application case.
  • They can name and describe the optimisations of cycles and calculate and create specific examples or proposals.
  • They are able to list different methods of combustion and compare them with each other.
  • They know relevant methods of flue gas treatment.
  • The students know variants of nuclear reactions, compare them with each other and they know the technically usable one.
  • They are able to enumerate and describe the steps for the utilisation of this nuclear reaction and to combine them if necessary.
  • They can summarise the relevant renewable energy methods.
