Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to better understand the specific contents and system interrelationships of the energy transition and to put the methods learned into practice in the respective areas of the energy transition.

Subject of course

During the year, several opportunities arise to participate in thematic schools (winter, spring, summer, autumn) where EEG staff members are involved in the organisation and/or as lecturers. 2023 the following schools take/took place (selection). Partly the same or similar are also expected in 2024. Therefore, the list below will be continuously renewed and extended whenever a new school is announced in the upcoming winter/summer term 2023/2024.
