Basic computer knowledge; mechanics; mathematical methods for physics and engineering; basic knowledge of wind energy utilization; previous knowledge of metrology, basic knowledge of aerodynamics
Each seminar offered within the module holds for 6 credit points. Thus, students have to register for only one of the offered seminars within the module.
Skills to be acquired in this module
The "Wind Physics Student's Lab" aims to foster the learning process by own research activities of the students in wind physics and additionally to build up skills for scientific and experimental work and scientific writing. Therefore, this course is also intended as preparation for the master thesis. The course is organized as seminar with integrated work in the laboratory. The students will investigate an individual, self-formulated research question and will be guided by the supervisors through the research-based learning process. The work in groups and discussion of solutions aims to improve skills in team working. In order to introduce the students to current wind energy research, the course is offered in three versions. These versions represent the work of the three research groups at ForWind - University Oldenburg.
