Structure of the degree program

Master Environmental Modelling

Course of studies over the semesters

Semester 1  
Module Introduction to Environmental Modelling: Ring-VL & Project Study 6 CP
3 modules from basic competences (possibly according to the access committee) 18 CP
1 module in the chosen profile area 6 CP
Semester 2  
3 modules combined from specialisation and supplementary area 18 CP
1 module in the chosen profile area 6 CP
Module Practical Seminar Modelling Study 6 CP
Semester 3  
3 modules combined from focus area and supplementary area 18 CP
Module Contact internship/research project 12 CP
Semester 4  
Final module Master's thesis 30 CP

We strongly recommend that you complete the module contact internship/research project before the final module Master's thesis, because in most cases this provides an important decision-making aid for the selection of the Master's thesis and is also frequently associated with the acquisition of knowledge and methodological skills important for the Master's topic.

Exemplary study path

If the student chooses the specialisation Statistical and Stochastic Modelling (SSSM), courses from the specialisation Process- and System-Oriented Modelling in the supplementary area ( EB ), as well as the profile area Environmental Systems and Biodiversity (PUB ), the concrete course of studies could look as follows:
