Program description

Content

The Bachelor-program General Engineering Science (GES) starts with a broad, for all students binding fundamental engineering curricula. With begin of the 3rd Semester students have to choose one of the 9 fields of study (civil engineering, biotechnology, electrical engineering, energy- and environmental engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, medical engineering, naval engineering, process engineering), some of them with further specialisations. GES has with 210 credit points a higher workload compared to other Bachelor study courses. Therefore General Engineering Science is designed for 7 semesters.


Career prospects

The graduates of the Bachelor program General Engineering Science are directly able to enter a career in the field of mechanical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, process engineering or computer science engineering and work responsibly as engineer. They are entitled to use the professional title Ingenieurin or Ingenieur  (Engineer) pursuant to the Engineers Acts (Ingenieurgesetzen) of the states in Germany. 

Possible employers include companies in mechanical, civil, process, electrical and computer science engineering as well as engineering firms.

The Bachelor degree in one of the fields of study enables a consecutive study of one of the corresponding Master studies, of  another technical or of an economic oriented Master study. Most of the modules in the 1st and the 2nd semester of GES are offered in English.

Skills

 At the end of this course the student is able to:

  1. Apply the properties of two- and three-dimensional force systems to the analysis of structural elements and simple structures in equilibrium.
  2. Isolate a body in equilibrium by drawing its free-body diagram on which all forces acting on the body are represented.
  3. Analyse the external effects of forces acting on a single body or a system of bodies in two- and three-dimensional equilibrium using the free-body diagram of the body or system.
  4. Analyse the internal forces in  trusses and  beams.  
  5. Solve problems of equilibrium with account for dry friction.
  6. Determine mass centres and centroids of lines, areas and volumes.

Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

The Non-technical Academic Programms (NTA)

imparts skills that, in view of the TUHH’s training profile, professional engineering studies require but are not able to cover fully. Self-reliance, self-management, collaboration and professional and personnel management competences. The department implements these training objectives in its teaching architecture, in its teaching and learning arrangements, in teaching areas and by means of teaching offerings in which students can qualify by opting for specific competences and a competence level at the Bachelor’s or Master’s level. The teaching offerings are pooled in two different catalogues for nontechnical complementary courses.

The Learning Architecture

consists of a cross-disciplinarily study offering. The centrally designed teaching offering ensures that courses in the nontechnical academic programms follow the specific profiling of TUHH degree courses.

The learning architecture demands and trains independent educational planning as regards the individual development of competences. It also provides orientation knowledge in the form of “profiles”

The subjects that can be studied in parallel throughout the student’s entire study program - if need be, it can be studied in one to two semesters. In view of the adaptation problems that individuals commonly face in their first semesters after making the transition from school to university and in order to encourage individually planned semesters abroad, there is no obligation to study these subjects in one or two specific semesters during the course of studies.

Teaching and Learning Arrangements

provide for students, separated into B.Sc. and M.Sc., to learn with and from each other across semesters. The challenge of dealing with interdisciplinarity and a variety of stages of learning in courses are part of the learning architecture and are deliberately encouraged in specific courses.

Fields of Teaching

are based on research findings from the academic disciplines cultural studies, social studies, arts, historical studies, migration studies, communication studies and sustainability research, and from engineering didactics. In addition, from the winter semester 2014/15 students on all Bachelor’s courses will have the opportunity to learn about business management and start-ups in a goal-oriented way.

The fields of teaching are augmented by soft skills offers and a foreign language offer. Here, the focus is on encouraging goal-oriented communication skills, e.g. the skills required by outgoing engineers in international and intercultural situations.

The Competence Level

of the courses offered in this area is different as regards the basic training objective in the Bachelor’s and Master’s fields. These differences are reflected in the practical examples used, in content topics that refer to different professional application contexts, and in the higher scientific and theoretical level of abstraction in the B.Sc.

This is also reflected in the different quality of soft skills, which relate to the different team positions and different group leadership functions of Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates in their future working life.

Specialized Competence (Knowledge)

Students can

  • locate selected specialized areas with the relevant non-technical mother discipline,
  • outline basic theories, categories, terminology, models, concepts or artistic techniques in the disciplines represented in the learning area,
  • different specialist disciplines relate to their own discipline and differentiate it as well as make connections, 
  • sketch the basic outlines of how scientific disciplines, paradigms, models, instruments, methods and forms of representation in the specialized sciences are subject to individual and socio-cultural interpretation and historicity,
  • Can communicate in a foreign language in a manner appropriate to the subject.
Skills

Professional Competence (Skills)

In selected sub-areas students can

  • apply basic methods of the said scientific disciplines,
  • auestion a specific technical phenomena, models, theories from the viewpoint of another, aforementioned specialist discipline,
  • to handle simple questions in aforementioned scientific disciplines in a sucsessful manner,
  • justify their decisions on forms of organization and application in practical questions in contexts that go beyond the technical relationship to the subject.
Personal Competence
Social Competence

Personal Competences (Social Skills)

Students will be able

  • to learn to collaborate in different manner,
  • to present and analyze problems in the abovementioned fields in a partner or group situation in a manner appropriate to the addressees,
  • to express themselves competently, in a culturally appropriate and gender-sensitive manner in the language of the country (as far as this study-focus would be chosen), 
  • to explain nontechnical items to auditorium with technical background knowledge.


Autonomy

Personal Competences (Self-reliance)

Students are able in selected areas

  • to reflect on their own profession and professionalism in the context of real-life fields of application
  • to organize themselves and their own learning processes      
  • to reflect and decide questions in front of a broad education background
  • to communicate a nontechnical item in a competent way in writen form or verbaly
  • to organize themselves as an entrepreneurial subject country (as far as this study-focus would be chosen)

Basic knowledge in electrical engineering

Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

This module deals with the foundations of the functionality of computing systems. It covers the layers from the assembly-level programming down to gates. The module includes the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Combinational logic: Gates, Boolean algebra, Boolean functions, hardware synthesis, combinational networks
  • Sequential logic: Flip-flops, automata, systematic hardware design
  • Technological foundations
  • Computer arithmetic: Integer addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Basics of computer architecture: Programming models, MIPS single-cycle architecture, pipelining
  • Memories: Memory hierarchies, SRAM, DRAM, caches
  • Input/output: I/O from the perspective of the CPU, principles of passing data, point-to-point connections, busses
Skills

The students perceive computer systems from the architect's perspective, i.e., they identify the internal structure and the physical composition of computer systems. The students can analyze, how highly specific and individual computers can be built based on a collection of few and simple components. They are able to distinguish between and to explain the different abstraction layers of today's computing systems - from gates and circuits up to complete processors.

After successful completion of the module, the students are able to judge the interdependencies between a physical computer system and the software executed on it. In particular, they shall understand the consequences that the execution of software has on the hardware-centric abstraction layers from the assembly language down to gates. This way, they will be enabled to evaluate the impact that these low abstraction levels have on an entire system's performance and to propose feasible options.

Personal Competence
Social Competence

Students are able to solve similar problems alone or in a group and to present the results accordingly.

Autonomy

Students are able to acquire new knowledge from specific literature and to associate this knowledge with other classes.

The lecture gives an introduction into the classical structural dynamics, whereas the focus lies on the practical applications. The theoretical basics are worked out in order to apply them for typical issues in practice. For an effective vibration isolation due to vibration excitations by e.g. railway traffic, operating machines oder moving people, different structural measures are presented. The lecture is completed by performing examples of vibration measurements as well as interactive dynamic experiments in the laboratory.

The following topics are covered:

Particular features in structural dynamics

Basic terms of time-dependent excitations

Free vibrations (natural frequencies)

Induced vibrations

Impact excitations of structures

Methods of amplitude reduction (vibration isolation)

Introduction to soil dynamics

Vibration measurements and requirements for vibration protection

Vibrations induced by people

In the management tutorial, the contents of the lecture will be deepened by practical examples and the application of the discussed tools.

If there is adequate demand, a problem-oriented tutorial will be offered in parallel, which students can choose alternatively. Here, students work in groups on self-selected projects that focus on the elaboration of an innovative business idea from the point of view of an established company or a startup. Again, the business knowledge from the lecture should come to practical use. The group projects are guided by a mentor.

Content

The lecture on drinking water supply provides students with a basic understanding of the entire water supply system, encompassing water catchment, water treatment including pump systems, water storage, and the distribution system that carries water to the consumer.

Initially, basics in hydraulics and pump systems are presented (system curve and pump curve). Students learn how the duty point of the pump is determined.  Students learn about different water resources and will be able to design groundwater wells. Students learn how to determine water demand and derive planning values for designing the different elements of a water supply system (e.g. firefighting requirements). The functions of reservoirs, their design and arrangement in the water supply system are explained.  Students will be able to design simple water distribution systems.

A further part of the lecture deals with the processes involved in drinking water supply. This includes a presentation of the essential mechanisms and layout parameters for sedimentation, filtration, coagulation, membrane treatment, adsorption, water softening, gas exchange, ion exchange and disinfection. The basics of process treatment technology will be built on with parallel analysis of the impacts on chemical and physical water quality parameters.

Specialization Bioprocess Engineering

Biotechnology provides the basics for sustainable manufacturing of products as food, feed, bioenergy, biopolymers and chemicals and for providing the human being wit medicines and other essential goods. It requires interdisciplinary application of natural (especially biology and chemistry) and engineering sciences. Many everyday products are manufactured by means of biotechnical production processes. Biotechnical material conversion is also used to utilize and minimize byproducts and residues in order to achieve sustainable production. Engineers with biotechnical expertise are needed to meet the growing global demand for the development and operation of biotechnical processes by which to manufacture essential everyday products. 

Graduates can explain phenomena that occur in bioprocess engineering and allied disciplines. They can outline the basic bioprocess engineering principles for interpreting, modeling, and simulating biological processes and chemical reactions, energy, material, and momentum transport processes, micro-, meso- and macro-scale separation processes, and for operating the plant required for these processes. They are able to describe the basics of measurement and control technology. They can take into consideration legal aspects that arise in connection with process engineering and production facilities.

Basic knowledge in electrical engineering

Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

This module deals with the foundations of the functionality of computing systems. It covers the layers from the assembly-level programming down to gates. The module includes the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Combinational logic: Gates, Boolean algebra, Boolean functions, hardware synthesis, combinational networks
  • Sequential logic: Flip-flops, automata, systematic hardware design
  • Technological foundations
  • Computer arithmetic: Integer addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Basics of computer architecture: Programming models, MIPS single-cycle architecture, pipelining
  • Memories: Memory hierarchies, SRAM, DRAM, caches
  • Input/output: I/O from the perspective of the CPU, principles of passing data, point-to-point connections, busses
Skills

The students perceive computer systems from the architect's perspective, i.e., they identify the internal structure and the physical composition of computer systems. The students can analyze, how highly specific and individual computers can be built based on a collection of few and simple components. They are able to distinguish between and to explain the different abstraction layers of today's computing systems - from gates and circuits up to complete processors.

After successful completion of the module, the students are able to judge the interdependencies between a physical computer system and the software executed on it. In particular, they shall understand the consequences that the execution of software has on the hardware-centric abstraction layers from the assembly language down to gates. This way, they will be enabled to evaluate the impact that these low abstraction levels have on an entire system's performance and to propose feasible options.

Personal Competence
Social Competence

Students are able to solve similar problems alone or in a group and to present the results accordingly.

Autonomy

Students are able to acquire new knowledge from specific literature and to associate this knowledge with other classes.

The experiment demonstrates the effect of ionic strength on the binding of dissolved zinc and phosphate by soil surfaces. From the results it can be inferred that the potential of soil surfaces is modified by the application of salt. This has consequences for the retention of nutrients and pollutants. The experiment is carried out with iron oxide rich soil material.

Within the lab course students discuss the various technical and scientific tasks, both subject-specific and multidisciplinary. They discuss different approaches to the task as well as it's theoretical or practical implementation.

Knowledge

This module deals with the foundations of the functionality of computing systems. It covers the layers from the assembly-level programming down to gates. The module includes the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Combinational logic: Gates, Boolean algebra, Boolean functions, hardware synthesis, combinational networks
  • Sequential logic: Flip-flops, automata, systematic hardware design
  • Technological foundations
  • Computer arithmetic: Integer addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Basics of computer architecture: Programming models, MIPS single-cycle architecture, pipelining
  • Memories: Memory hierarchies, SRAM, DRAM, caches
  • Input/output: I/O from the perspective of the CPU, principles of passing data, point-to-point connections, busses
Skills

The students perceive computer systems from the architect's perspective, i.e., they identify the internal structure and the physical composition of computer systems. The students can analyze, how highly specific and individual computers can be built based on a collection of few and simple components. They are able to distinguish between and to explain the different abstraction layers of today's computing systems - from gates and circuits up to complete processors.

After successful completion of the module, the students are able to judge the interdependencies between a physical computer system and the software executed on it. In particular, they shall understand the consequences that the execution of software has on the hardware-centric abstraction layers from the assembly language down to gates. This way, they will be enabled to evaluate the impact that these low abstraction levels have on an entire system's performance and to propose feasible options.

Personal Competence
Social Competence

Students are able to solve similar problems alone or in a group and to present the results accordingly.

Autonomy

Students are able to acquire new knowledge from specific literature and to associate this knowledge with other classes.

Specialization Energy and Enviromental Engineering

One of the main challenges in modern society is the reliable, environmentally benign and sustainable supply of energy. An efficient energy supply is moreover essential to secure the economic future of the country.

The exponential increase in world population, the raised living standards and the continuously increasing hunger for feedstocks, acreage and energy make imperative the sustainable handling of natural resources. This includes the reduction of emissions and the minimisation of environmental impact. An example with growing significance is the control of the CO2 emissions that are responsible for the greenhouse effect. For this, possibilities are sought that bring energy savings or involve increased use of renewable energy sources. In a continued utilisation of fossil fuels the reduction of CO2 emissions is pursued by increasing efficiency and also through separation and underground storage of the CO2 emitted. The latter approaches make a close cooperation between Energy Engineering and Environmental Engineering unavoidable.

The study specialisation in Energy and Environmental Engineering of the degree General Engineering Science responds to two developments: on the one hand the increasing significance of environmental protection through CO2 separation in large power stations and, on the other, the growing supply of electricity from regenerative energy sources. Both these key developments in electricity generation are taken into consideration in designing the degree course. Not only for the CO2 separation technologies but also for other environmental protection purposes, as for example air pollution protection, key qualifications in Chemistry play an important role. Conventional and renewable electricity generation technologies are covered in the degree more detailed but still under a generalist viewpoint.

The study specialisation in Energy and Environmental Engineering of the degree General Engineering Science conveys a wide and well-founded multidisciplinary fundamental knowledge in the disciplines of Energy Engineering and of Environmental Engineering. Extending a well-grounded understanding in the core qualifications over basic engineering methods (mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, informatics and engineering construction) additional skills are conveyed in energy technology, environmental assessment, environmental technology, materials science and particle technology, along with non-technical subjects. These provide necessary qualifications for elaborating the supporting processes during system development. At the skills level the Bachelor degree prepares the student for a Master study or even a PhD research too, so that after graduation also professional qualifications suitable for a potential future research career are gained.

Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

This module deals with the foundations of the functionality of computing systems. It covers the layers from the assembly-level programming down to gates. The module includes the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Combinational logic: Gates, Boolean algebra, Boolean functions, hardware synthesis, combinational networks
  • Sequential logic: Flip-flops, automata, systematic hardware design
  • Technological foundations
  • Computer arithmetic: Integer addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Basics of computer architecture: Programming models, MIPS single-cycle architecture, pipelining
  • Memories: Memory hierarchies, SRAM, DRAM, caches
  • Input/output: I/O from the perspective of the CPU, principles of passing data, point-to-point connections, busses
Skills

The students perceive computer systems from the architect's perspective, i.e., they identify the internal structure and the physical composition of computer systems. The students can analyze, how highly specific and individual computers can be built based on a collection of few and simple components. They are able to distinguish between and to explain the different abstraction layers of today's computing systems - from gates and circuits up to complete processors.

After successful completion of the module, the students are able to judge the interdependencies between a physical computer system and the software executed on it. In particular, they shall understand the consequences that the execution of software has on the hardware-centric abstraction layers from the assembly language down to gates. This way, they will be enabled to evaluate the impact that these low abstraction levels have on an entire system's performance and to propose feasible options.

Personal Competence
Social Competence

Students are able to solve similar problems alone or in a group and to present the results accordingly.

Autonomy

Students are able to acquire new knowledge from specific literature and to associate this knowledge with other classes.

In the exercise-lecture the topics from the main lecture are discussed intensively and transferred into application. For that, the students receive example tasks for download. The students solve these problems based on the lecture material either independently or in small groups. The solution is discussed with the students under scientific supervision and parts of the solutions are presented on the chalk board. At the end of each exercise-lecture, the correct solution is presented on the chalk board. Parallel to the exercise-lecture tutorials are held where the student solve exam questions under a set time-frame in small groups and discuss the solutions afterwards.

Content

The students work on eight different experiments in this practical course. For every one of the eight experiments, a colloquium takes place in which the students explain and discuss the theoretical background and its translation into practice with staff and fellow students.

The students work small groups with a high degree of division of labor. For every experiment, the students write a report. They receive instructions in terms of scientific writing as well as feedback on their own reports and level of scientific writing so they can increase their capabilities in this area.

Topics of the practical course:

  • Introduction in the thermal process engineering and to the main features of separation processes
  • Simple equilibrium processes, several steps processes
  • Distillation of binary mixtures, enthalpy-concentration diagrams
  • Extractive and azeotrope distillation, water vapor distillation, stepwise distillation

  • "Technical Thermodynamics I and II"
  • "Heat Transfer"
  • "Fluid Mechanics"
Educational Objectives After taking part successfully, students have reached the following learning results
Professional Competence
Knowledge

The students can evaluate the development of the electricity demand and the energy conversion routes in the thermal power plant, describe the various types of power plant and the layout of the steam generator block. They are also able to determine the operation characteristics of the power plant. Additionally they can describe the exhaust gas cleaning apparatus and the combination possibilities of conventional fossil-fuelled power plants with solar thermal and geothermal power plants or plants equipped with Carbon Capture and Storage.

The students have basic knowledge about the principles, operation and design of turbomachinery

Skills

The students will be able, using theories and methods of the energy technology from fossil fuels and based on well-founded knowledge on the function and construction of gas and steam power plants, to identify basic associations in the production of heat and electricity, so as to develop conceptual solutions. Through analysis of the problem and exposure to the inherent interplay between heat and power generation the students are endowed with the capability and methodology to develop realistic optimal concepts for the generation of electricity and the production of heat. From the technical basics the students become the ability to follow better the deliberations on the electricity mix composition within the energy-political triangle (economy, secure supply and environmental protection).

Within the framework of the exercise the students learn the use of the specialised software suite EBSILON ProfessionalTM. With this tool small practical tasks are solved with the PC, to highlight aspects of the design and development of power plant cycles.

The students are able to do simplified calculations on turbomachinery either as part of a plant, as single component or at stage level.

Personal Competence
Social Competence An excursion within the framework of the lecture is planned for students that are interested. The students get in this manner direct contact with a modern power plant in this region. The students will obtain first-hand experience with a power plant in operation and gain insights into the conflicts between technical and political issues.
Autonomy

The students assisted by the tutors will be able to develop alone simple simulation models and run with these scenario analyses. In this manner the theoretical and practical knowledge from the lecture is consolidated and the potential effects from different process combinations and boundary conditions highlighted. The students are able independently to analyse the operational performance of steam power plants and calculate selected quantities and characteristic curves.
