Sustainable Energy Impact (SEI) is a student project with the aim of providing students with practical experience from scientific projects. The project study follows the problem-based learning approach. It focuses on students actively engaging in solving real-world problems.

Description SuSe 24

Students of the summer semester 2024 can choose to work on the following tasks

  • Upgrade, operation and maintenance of a solar micro-grid on the campus in Bochum used in projects like “Smart City Sustainable Mobility II” (read more)

  • Creation of an Life Cycle Assessment of a fuel cell used in the scientific project “Green Hydrogen for Decentralized Energy Systems in Ghana” (read more)

  • Calculation of efficiencies of the individual energy systems of the Don Bosco Training (read more)

Since the solution of the problem requires the knowledge of several disciplines, we aim to form an interdisciplinary team with different academic backgrounds. 

It is important to us that the students have the opportunity to work practically in addition to research activities. For example, we will dismantle and analyse an old fuel cell for life cycle analyses and carry out repairs or upgrades directly on the solar micro-grid on the campus in Bochum.  

To give students the opportunity to link their acquired knowledge with business practice, a university-sponsored plant visit to our partner company SFC Energy AG is arranged. 

In which faculties is the project study offered? 

Currently, the project study is offered in the faculties of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Sustainability (E), Civil and Environmental Engineering (B) and Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering (M), in which ECTS can be credited for successful participation. Interested students from other departments are asked to contact the project manager by e-mail.

How can I join?

Joining the project team is possible at the beginning of each semester. If you are interested, feel free to contact the project leader by email at any time for more information.

Do I need certain prior knowledge?

No, no previous knowledge is required to join the project and all bachelor or master students can participate. However, the motivation to familiarize oneself with new topics is expected.

Do you have further questions?
