Mentoring


Since the Master Course is mostly characterized by being interdisciplinary, the knowledge is primarily imparting the handling with complex issues. On the one hand it offers a multi-option, but on the other hand it also requires problem-oriented work for the projects. This is why it is so important to offer several reference points and a clearly regulated course coaching to the students.
The Master Course relies on a course coaching, in which advisors from two categories are allocated to each student: Mentors and International Consultants. They assist the students during their  studies as well as during the elaboration of the Master Thesis.
 

Mentors:

The Mentors are the main reference persons and consultants during the whole study, concerning the professional as well as the organizational matters. A mentor is allocated to each student. The mentors offer support in choosing elective subjects and projects and supervise the projects also content wise, just as the Master Thesis. Besides that, they give advise concerning the choice of international consultants. For respective technical discussions the students should not only make use of face-to-face-meetings, but also telephone conferences, Skype conferences, et cetera. If necessary, mentors can participate in field trips or organize intermediate and final presentations for the individual credits.
 

International Consultanants:

International Consultants take on the consulting of the students concerning technical issues in the project phases and during the Master Thesis. These consultants are an addition to the mentors. The International Consultants ensure the contact to the professional world on the one hand and they are important reference persons to international students on the other hand. The individual communication can, according to the circumstances, take place in conferences, research travelling, telephone conferences, Skype conferences or email.
