Interdisciplinary Project

Energy engineers are continuously confronted with diverse issues external to their background or expertise. Furthermore, companies generally prefer to employ people with dissimilar proficiency in order to create a diverse and strong team. An interdisciplinary work environment and tasks freestanding from one’s familiarities necessitate a large scale of skills that can only be gained with experience.

The goal of the module is to familiarize students with: 

  • Analysis and research methods of scientific working
  • Independent completion of research and studies in interdisciplinary groups
  • Work on unfamiliar challenging topics
  • Report writing and presentation skills. 

Goal of this module is to teach the students the significance of interdisciplinary collaboration as well as to make students experience the challenges and benefits of intercultural and cross-disciplinary team work. After participating in this module, the students will be able to tackle a problem, formulate the right research questions, find and evaluate possible solutions, conduct a feasibility study, and present their research work. 

The topics tackled in the Interdisciplinary Project alter annually. The content is adjusted to confront latest issues in the field of sustainability and will differ from contents of other modules as energy engineering, water engineering and urban development students participate. In interactive input sessions the students will be provided with the necessary concepts, knowledge and skills to tackle the Interdisciplinary Term Project. Visiting professors, external experts, and the organizing team will conduct lectures, workshops and seminars to cover the related subjects. Determined by the terms task technical background, sustainability, feasibility study, questionnaire design, and report writing will be issued. Interactive lectures, Group work, discussions, and presentations dominate the project. Result of the Project is a joint report.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Nytsch-Geusen, Institute for Building Supply Planning and Technology, Universität der Künste Berlin


Prof. Nytsch-Geusen conducted his diploma in energy engineering and his PhD on energy efficiency of buildings at the Technische Universität Berlin. With work experienve as an project engineer and as a research assistant at two diffrenet institutes of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Prof. Nytsch-Geusen was assigned as university professor in the field of “Care Planning and Supply Technology " within a degree program in Architecture at the University of Arts in Berlin.
