MASTER'S COURSE

The Summer University can be followed by a Master's course. The Master's study starts with a Summer University course and continues with MSc/MEng studies by e-learning. After one year the German Certificate of the "Engineer's Chamber Saxony-Anhalt" "Engineer specialist (Fachingenieur) in renewable energy, environment and climate protection" is awarded. After the second year, another Summer University has to be completed, and the MSc/MEng diploma will be awarded.
