Curriculum

General Competence Courses
Mandatory:

All students should take one of the following three courses. (the course content of the three courses are identical, but the course are places in different 3-week periods).

42501 Innovation in Engineering 5 point June
or
42504 Innovation in Engineering 5 point August
or
42500 Innovation in Engineering 5 point January

Students with advanced innovation competences may take one of the following courses as an alternative to 42500/42501/42504

42505 Facilitating Innovation in Multidisciplinary teams 5 point August
or
42503 Facilitating Innovation in Multidisciplinary teams 5 point June
or
42502 Facilitating Innovation in Multidisciplinary Teams 5 point January

In addition the 5 points achieved in the above courses, all students need to obtain 5 points in other innovation courses. The student can choose between the following courses.

Only 5 points from these courses count as general competences and extra point obtained will count as technological specialization.

26620 Chemistry and Innovation 5 point June
28310 Chemical and Biochemical Product Design 10 point Autumn E2A (Mon 13-17) and January
28485 Biobusiness and Process Innovation 5 point Autumn E1B (Thurs 13-17)
38103 X-Tech Entrepreneurship 10 point Spring F3 (Tues 8-12, Fri 13-17), Autumn E3 (Tues 8-12, Fri 13-17)

Choose at least 20 points among the following courses:
26231 Physical Chemistry 3 5 point Spring F5B (Wed 13-17)
26317 Instrumental chemical analysis 5 point Spring F2B (Thurs 8-12)
26422 Biomolecular Chemistry 5 point Autumn E3A (Tues 8-12)

47339 Solid state and structural chemistry 5 point Autumn E1A (Mon 8-12)
or
26134 Advanced Inorganic Chemistry (Inorganic Chemistry 3) 5 point Autumn E5A (Wed 8-12)

The courses 26134 and 47339 cannot both count as general competence courses

If the total General Competence Courses passed exceed 30 ECTS points, the surplus courses may be used in fulfilling the requirement for Technological Specialization Courses.

Elective Courses

Any course classified as MSc course in DTU's course base may be taken for credit as an elective course. This includes general competence and technological specialization courses in excess of the minimal requirements. Master students are allowed to take Bachelor DTU courses with the objective to obtaining basic skills not originally obtained in the qualifying bachelor degree (maximum 10 ECTS)
