New Lab course

New Lab Course: Academic Energy Cooperative @ TUM - Project NEIbourhood Neuperlach

New Lab Couse: Academic Energy Cooperative @ TUM - Project NEBourhood Neuperlach

Energy cooperatives have proven successful throughout Germany and other countries. These initiatives, driven by citizen engagement, significantly promote the local transition to sustainable renewable energy. At TUM, we have a unique framework to use the possibilities of an academic energy cooperative. Students, researchers, staff, and professors can contribute their different fields of expertise and apply it in practical ways. As a vibrant community, we can bring together the right people to extend the concept of energy cooperatives beyond rapid transformation towards a sustainable energy system - and connect it to teaching, research, and entrepreneurship by providing a space for practical application and proof-of-concept studies.

You will be part of the EU-funded NEBourhood project, which works on developing neighborhood concepts for better and sustainable coexistence. This project lab will focus on the aspect of decentralized local energy production and supply based on photovoltaics. Two roof areas are already available for this purpose.

Topics to be worked on are:

  • Site analysis with regard to the power generation potential via PV
  • Analysis of the structural and building law requirements for the installation of the PV systems
  • Technical design of PV systems, incl. comparative analysis of available solar panels in technological, ecological, and economic terms

In addition, you will get in contact with the overall activities within the founding process of the Academic Energy Cooperative @ TUM, training also relevant interdisciplinary skills.

This topic is intended for MSC-PE students only. The setting will be a PorpENS project lab:

Due to the short notice, there is no regular registration for this course via TUMonline. If you are interested in participating in the winter semester of 2023/24 please contact asap or your semester representative.

Research Internship (12 ECTS Credits)


The research internship is intended to prepare students for their later scientific activities in research and development by providing them with insight into current research topics during their master studies. The research internship takes the form of project work. Each student in the master program works on an individual project assigned by a professor/supervisor from the respective chair within the scope of the research internship. Upon successful completion of the internship students will be able to draw up (apply learned concepts) and plan a project with an engineering character, to define milestones, as well as to document the progress and results of the project and to present them to an audience.


The research internship covers 12 credits, corresponding to 9 weeks of full-time work. The module may be spread across several blocks of time within a maximum period of half a year. If the internship is divided into blocks, all supervised by the same examiner, a single report of completion of the research internship in the amount of 12 ECTS can be issued at the end of the semester. Absences (e.g. due to illness) of more than three days must be made up.

The research internship has to be carried out under the supervision of a TUM expert examiners. For MSC-PE these are all university professors, lecturers and junior fellows who teach a Core Module or a listed Elective Module. Furthermore, the following professors are nominated as expert examiners for MSC-PE by the Examination Board: Prof. Kreupl, Prof. Alexander Koch, Prof. Lienkamp, Prof. Wen, Prof. Zäh, Prof. Armanini, Prof. Oksanen, Prof. Rudolf Neu, Prof. Daub.

The student must independently seek a place for a research intership and supervision by a TUM expert examiner. There is no allocation of places arranged by the study office.

The student together with his professor/supervisor draws up a work plan defining project objectives, methods and schedule of completion. The supervisor has to send the Research Intership - Registration to the email mentioned on the form.

Upon completion of the project, the student has to write a report and hold a presentation regarding the results of the project. The length and formal requirements of the report and presentation are not specified in the academic and examination regulations of the degree program (FPSO), but defined by the professor. The research internship is completed on a pass/fail basis without a grade.

The supervisor will send the Research Intership - Confirmation form reporting the completion of the research internship directly to the email mentioned on the form. Only this form will be kept by the office. Other documents concerning the research internship, such as written work, presentations or other proofs of work, remain with the professor.

Failed or not completed research internship modules should be reported to the MSC-PE examination board. The module can be repeated as often as necessary.

As with the thesis module, the research internship may be completed externally at a research institution or a research-oriented department of a company, provided the research character of the project work is maintained. If you would like to carry out the research internship in industry or an external institution, you must find a MSC-PE TUM expert examiner who will supervise the intership and give a final grade of "pass" or "fail". Please contact the professors directly on your own. The professor has to agree to the supervision of external projects and draw up a work plan together with the student before starting the external research internship.

Especially if it is conducted as an external internship in industry and it should not count as working days in terms of the "120 full days or 240 half day rule" (see below), the research internship cannot be carried out less than full-time. However, the module may be spread across several blocks of time within a maximum period of half a year.

If you are not a citizen of the European Union or European Economic Area and are aiming for an industrial internship longer than the nine weeks, please note that you may not work more than 120 full days or 240 half days in addition to the mandatory nine-week research internship without permission  (

If you cannot complete the external internship in the lecture-free period alone, you have the option of applying for a leave of absence.

Recognition of previous work as a research internship

The MSC-PE FPSO provides in §37a (3) the possibility of recognition of successfully completed research projects or equivalent achievements as research practice. The decision lies with the MSC-PE Examination Board.

As a rule:

  • Work completed within the scope of a Bachelor or Master degree program that is a prerequisite for admission to the master program MSC-PE cannot be recognized toward the research internship.
  • Work or activities within the scope of a student job held during the master program cannot be later recognized toward the research internship.

In exceptional cases, periods of employment after the bachelor degree and before commencement of the master program may be acknowledged as research internship, provided that the employment encompassed research activities at a research-oriented institution. Students seeking to have employment activities recognized toward fulfillment of the research internship should contact the master examination board. Recognition is only possible if the items on the following "checklist" can all be answered with "yes":

  1. Was the duration of the activity at least three months, of which at least nine weeks were pure research activities (full-time, correspondingly longer in the case of part-time work)?
  2. Was the research activity started after completion of the Bachelor's or Diploma program (the date of the certificate is relevant)?
  3. Was the research activity completed before the start of the MSC-PE (the date of first enrollment is relevant)?
  4. Can a job reference be submitted which states the duration, scope, type of activity and an assessment?
  5. Can the activity be described in the form of a scientific manuscript of at least 10 pages with the following sections:
    • Title
    • Author, course of studies, student’s ID
    • Abstract
    • State of the art (with at least 10 references to scientific publications - conference proceedings or journal articles - no manuals, operating instructions, application notes or similar!)
    • Applied scientific methods and procedures (with at least 5 references to scientific publications conference proceedings, journal articles or textbooks - no manuals, operating instructions, application notes, etc.!)
    • Results and progress achieved beyond the state of the art
    • Conclusion

If these requirements are met, the recognition can be applied for by sending an informal application to The following documents must be attached to the email as a pdf scan:

  • Bachelor's or diploma certificate
  • Proof of first enrollment MSC-PE
  • Job reference
  • Scientific manuscript, as described in more detail above

Master Thesis (30 Credits)

The six-month Master Thesis concludes the MSC-PE Program and it has to be carried out at a chair of TUM expert examiners. For MSC-PE these are all university professors, lecturers and junior fellows who teach a Core Module or an Elective Module. Furthermore, the following professors are nominiated as expert examiners for MSC-PE by the Examination Board: Prof. Kreupl, Prof. Alexander Koch, Prof. Lienkamp, Prof. Wen, Prof. Zäh, Prof. Armanini, Prof. Oksanen, Prof. Rudolf Neu, Prof. Daub.

If you would like to conduct your Master Thesis at an external institution (e.g. chair of a professor not listed as a MSC-PE TUM expert examiner, external research institute or company), this can only be done in agreement and cooperation with one of the above-mentioned MSC-PE TUM expert examiners, who will then be the official topic provider and will carry out the grading of the Master Thesis. The topic of the thesis should be related to the field of power engineering. Please identify and contact the corresponding officially supervising professor or chair by your own and in a timely manner. Please note: We at TUM are not involved in contractual matters between you and the external institution.

Please also note possible offers for master theses under Master Thesis Offers.

Students can start the master thesis if they have passed 65 credits from "Power Engineering Moduls" (Core Modules, Elective Modules, Laboratories, Seminar) plus the research internship.


Before registering, please check carefully whether you really meet the credit requirements for registering for the master thesis (see above) and whether these are correctly displayed in your TUMonline account. Please note that for MSC-PE a confirmation from the program management to you or your supervisor that you fulfill the requirements for the registration for the master thesis is not foreseen.

Registration can be done at any time of the year.

To register for the master's thesis, ask your supervisor to fill out the Master Thesis - Registration form.The supervisor must then send the completed form to the e-mail address indicated on the form. The date indicated in this form under "Date of issue of the Master Thesis" is the official starting point of the 6-month processing period.

Extension (exeptional cases!)

If a student, for reasons beyond his or her control, is prevented from submitting the thesis within the first six-month deadline, the Examination Committee will extend the period for writing the thesis by a maximum of 3 month provided that the student applied for an extension prior to the first deadline and obtained the supervisor’s approval. If a student is able to prove, by a medical certificate, that he/she is prevented from writing the thesis due to illness, the deadline will be suspended.

In those exceptional cases, the TUM supervisor (not student!) must send an email to stating the duration as well as the reason for the extension in addition to the consent.


You must submit the written document of your Master Thesis 6 months (if extension granted, accordingly later) after the "Date of issue of the Master Thesis" indicated on the registration form. The oral presentation can take place later.

After completion of the thesis, the document Master Thesis - Submission has to be filled and submitted in the manner and to the email address mentioned on the form.

The archiving of the Master Thesis is done at the chair where the thesis was written according to its rules. It is not necessary to submit a version (either electronic or hard copy) to the Study & Teaching Office.

If the master thesis was the last achievement of your studies, please refer to the information at End of Study below.

Academic-legal basics

The legal basics regarding the master thesis are fixed here:

General Academic and Examination Regulations → §18

Fachprüfungs- und Studienordnung (FPSO)  → §46

Course Scheduling

Course Schedule

In principle, all modules in the MSC-PE program are electives. Therefore, within limits, you can freely compose the modules according to your interests. There is no predefined study plan. You must or may put together your own study plan with the help of the module descriptions.

However, at the beginning of the program, it is recommended to focus on completing the core modules first.


Upon request and in cooperation with the students, focus areas were identified to deepen specific knowledge. These are

  • "Power Generation" (PG)
  • "Power Storage" (PS)
  • "Power Economics" (PE)
  • "Power IT" (PIT)

In order to simplify the selection of modules in this respect, the modules that students consider particularly relevant for the individual focus groups are marked in the lists accordingly (bold --> particularly suitable; normal --> well suited). This labeling is reviewed at regular intervals with the student representatives to ensure that it is up to date.

Please note that this is only non-binding information and not a sign of quality. Modules that are not labeled are equally suitable for the design of the individual curriculum.

Please also note that a focus in the sense of a specialization is not explicitly mentioned in the final document, but only indirectly results from the modules listed on the certificate.

Registration for courses and exams

Registering for courses is only possible after the start of the respective semester and after you have been completely enrolled

Although for many lecture-based courses registration is not mandatory to attend the lectures, registration is strongly recommended to get full access to the corresponding Moodle course where relevant documents for the course are provided.

Important note: Registering for the course is not sufficient to be registered for the exam! You must register separately for the exam!


The main location for courses is Garching.

Teaching format

The TUM is aiming to offer lectures in presence again from the start of the summer semester 2022. Often, the lecture is additionally offered in parallel in a digital format as an online lecture or video recording. However, the format provided is a decision of the lecturer and may be subject to change. Therefore, please inform yourself via the module description or by contacting the person responsible for the module in which format the respective course is offered.

Schedule conflict

In general, there is no mandatory attendance for courses at TUM. In the case of courses that are also available as video recordings, you therefore have the option of choosing these even if there is a schedule conflict with another course and then learning the content in self-study on a time-shifted basis. There are usually no schedule conflicts with the examination dates.

Selection of modules outside of the MSC-PE module list

In general, for your MSC-PE curriculum, you are not allowed to take courses outside the MSC-PE module list displayed in this wiki. The exception to this is the Interdisciplinary Modules, where you choose modules that are not part of the MSC-PE.

You are of course free to take courses without counting them towards your MSC-PE degree. They will then be shown as additional courses on your degree certificate.

Questions regarding specific modules

If you have any questions or problems (e.g. regarding contents, registration, exams) related to a specific module, please contact the respective person responsible for the module. You can usually find this person in the module description in TUMonline (bottom of the page) or on the homepage of the corresponding chair.

Bringing in / recognition of other modules

The list of modules is binding for the selection. There is no general possibility to bring in modules other than those listed.

Since the MSC-PE modules are elective modules, in general it is also not possible to recognize modules from the previous bachelor degree program with which you applied for the MSC-PE program. For modules taken in a degree program other than the bachelor's degree program with which you applied for MSC-PE, an equivalency check with MSC-PE modules must be performed.

Please contact us to check the individual case.

Extra credits

If you have earned more credits for a particular module group than are assigned for the module group, the total number of credits for that module group will be reduced to the number of credits assigned for that module group. 

Credit of additional Core Modules

You can take more than the required 4 Core Modules Electrical Engineering and 4 Core Modules Mechanical Enginieering. In this case, the additional core modules are brought in as Elective Modules.

Extra modules

If you have successfully completed more module exams than are required for the master's degree, they will be listed on an extra certificate that will be attached to the final degree certificate. Furthermore, these additional modules may replace passed modules in the same category or in the "Interdisciplinary Modules" category (e.g., to improve the overall grade) as long as they meet the specific requirements of that module category. This adjustment is made at the request of the student at the end of the program before the final graduation documents are prepared.

Crediting of modules from study exchange programs abroad

In general, only those modules that correspond to an MSC-PE module in terms of content can be credited. Exeption: For the block „Interdisciplinary modules” the choice is free and also non-MSC-PE modules can be brought in.


Failure of exams

In case of failure of exams (also due to non-attendance of exams without deregistration), they can be repeated several times. There is no limit to the number of retakes in MSC-PE as long as the deadlines of the academic progress control are met.

Failed exams do not affect the overall grade.

There is no obligation to take the repeat exam directly at the next opportunity. However, in the case of elective modules (all MSC-PE modules belong to the category of elective modules), the examiner is not obliged to offer a repeat exam more than once. This may be the case, for example, if lecture content has changed or the module has been dropped entirely. In addition, the examiner may decide to change the format of the repeat exam (written vs. oral).

If there is no possibility of a repeat exam, the module must be taken again or another module must be chosen.

Grade improvment

Passed exams cannot be retaken for grade improvement.

End of Study / Disenrollment

Final grading and additional moduls

The overall grade is calculated as the weighted grade average of all modules (except Research Internship and Interdisciplinary Modules) and the Master's Thesis. The grade weights of the individual modules correspond to the assigned credits.

If you have taken and passed additional modules, they will be listed on the Diploma Supplement and will not count toward the calculation of your final grade. If you would like to include these modules in the calculation of your final grade instead of other modules, please let us know before you apply for your final degree certificates.

Before final grading of your Master Thesis

If you need a confirmation before the final grading of your Master Thesis that you have completed all the requirements and will finish the studies in a timely manner (e.g. for a future employer or to apply for a work visa), please ask your supervisor to send a statement to confirming that the Master's thesis meets the requirements of a pass. 

After final grading of your Master Thesis

If you have completed all your degree requirements and any additional courses you may have taken in the last semester, please send us an email to with a confirmation that all courses are listed correctly in the TUMonline grade report (titles, credits, etc.). We will then initiate the issuing of the final graduation documents. Here you can find information about the Final Graduation Documents.

If you need a preliminary certificate after the final grading (e.g. to apply for a work visa), please refer to the relevant chapter at the aforementioned link. To apply for this preliminary certificate please fill the form Request for postal delivery of preliminary degree certificate – Campus Munich and send it as a signed pdf document to TUM CST/Graduation Office and Academic Records at campus Garching.

If you need a verification of your TUM degree or a confirmation of study data please refer to this link.


Generally, you need to remain enrolled until you have taken your last exam. For the final thesis, enrollment is mandatory until submission. For all other exams, you do not have to re-enroll if you take an examination which is allocated to the previous semester within the first week of the lecture period. This also applies to the obligatory presentation as part of the thesis.

You will be disenrolled at the end of the semester in which you passed your last required module. You may also still take additional courses and complete exams up to the time of exmatriculation. If you would like these courses to be included in the final graduation documents, please make sure by notifying the MSC-PE management that your degree certificate is not issued until the end of the semester so that we can adjust the relevant courses accordingly.
