    Announcement of topics: 09.04.2024
    Start of registration: 15.04.2024
    Registration deadline: 28.04.2024
    Announcement of the topics: 30.04.2024



    The processing time of the respective topic is 120 hours, corresponding to 4 ETCS points. Students must successfully complete the topic by the beginning of the following semester. Otherwise, the Energy Technology Teaching Laboratory will be evaluated as failed and must be repeated in the following semester with a new topic. The processing period in the semester is flexible and is agreed upon in consultation between the supervisor and the student.

Procedure for registering for the course Teaching Laboratory: Energy Technology [2171487].

Registration and allocation to the Teaching Lab: Energy Technology takes place in three steps:

1. Announcement of topics: 09.04.2024 

Please read the list of topics carefully. You can then register via the link below during the registration period.

2. Selection of topics in the period: 15.04.2024 - 28.04.2024

Registration takes place via the Campusportal Plus. When registering, you can prioritize the individual topics differently. Please indicate any previous knowledge that would be helpful for working on the topics. Based on the ratings, the best possible distribution of topics to all participants will be carried out after the end of the registration phase. Please note that not all participants will always be assigned their favorite topic.

3. Announcement of the final allocation: 30.04.2024

You will be informed automatically by e-mail which topic you will be working on. Contact your supervisor after the topic allocation (see topic overview). You can find the contact details at:


Please note that registration is binding. In justified exceptional cases, it is possible to return the topic after the allocation has been announced. To do so, please send an e-mail to mail-studienberatung∂

Goals and contents

Learning Objectives:

By participating in this course, students should:

  • be able to work on constructive, experimental, numerical, analytical or theoretical tasks in a scientific framework
  • be able to correctly evaluate obtained data
  • be able to document results and present them in a scientific context
Course Content:At ITS, students work on tasks that are newly compiled each semester by the scientific staff, similar to the topics of bachelor's or master's theses. The topics mentioned below are therefore only intended as examples:
  • Concept development for repeatable positioning of a camera using a robotic arm.
  • Advanced image processing with Python
  • Investigation of fuel atomization with novel mathematical methods in MATLAB®.
  • Development of an evaluation routine to determine the wetted surface from SPH particle data
  • Development of a method to quantify particle disorder in SPH simulations
  • Modeling and calculation of test rig components for heat transfer and
  • temperature profiles with finite element methods
  • Extension of the simulation model for the investigation of spray evaporation with OpenFOAM®.
  • Control of the setting of an acoustic levitator with LabVIEW
Workload:Attendance time: 42h
Self-study: 78h
