In addition to the competences acquired in a previous Bachelor's degree programme, graduates of the Master's degree programme "Digitalised Energy Systems" possess the following competences:
- name and identify the principles of informatics and transfer them to current developments in the energy industry,
- differentiate and contrast in more detail a sub-area of energy informatics in which they have specialised,
- recognise and assess the techniques and methods to be applied in their special field and their limitations,
- design solutions for complex and novel, possibly imprecisely defined or unusual tasks from the field of energy informatics and evaluate such designs according to the state of the art,
- identify, structure and solve problems also in new or emerging areas of their discipline,
- apply state of the art and innovative methods in investigating and solving problems, drawing on other disciplines where appropriate,
- relate knowledge from different disciplines to each other and apply these synergies in complex situations,
- develop complex energy information systems, processes and data models,
- recognise the limits of current knowledge and technology and contribute to the further scientific and technological development of energy informatics,
- discuss current developments in energy informatics and assess their relevance for specific tasks and the development of digitalised energy systems in general.
- recognise, formalise and investigate problems appropriately using suitable formal methods,
- design and evaluate one or more approaches to a solution,
- evaluate tools, technologies and methods and apply them in a differentiated manner,
- investigate problems on the basis of technical and scientific literature, write an article according to scientific aspects and present their results in a scientific lecture,
- plan time schedules as well as material and personnel resources,
- apply project management techniques,
- creatively develop new and original approaches and methods,
- reflect on problems, also in new or emerging areas of their discipline, and apply computer science methods to investigate and solve them.
- integrate their skills into team processes,
- recognise the achievements of others,
- integrate criticism into their own actions,
- respect the decisions reached in the team,
- communicate convincingly orally and in writing with users and experts,
- identify subtasks and take responsibility for them.
- take on leadership tasks in a team,
- critically follow further developments in informatics in general and in their special field of energy informatics,
- carry out innovative activities in their professional field successfully and on their own responsibility,
- recognise the limits of their competence and expand it in a targeted manner,
- reflect on their self-image and actions from a professional, methodological, social and societal point of view,
- develop and reflect on their own theories on independently formulated hypotheses,
- work independently in their professional field.
