mb-cn is a specific program of the Chemical Engineering Master’s program at Paderborn University:

  • Required subjects
    The required subjects consist of four basic mandatory modules.

  • Technical required electives
    Five technical required electives have to be registered for. In the mb-cn program, the modules "Chinese" and "Technical communication in China" are mandatory technical required electives. The other required electives can be selected freely.
  • Non-technical module
    The non-technical module is determined by "Intercultural competence".

  • Industrial internship
    The industrial internship is an engineering internship with the primary purpose to acquire some practical experience mainly related to chemical engineering.

  • Student research paper
    "mb-cn" students carry out their student research paper as part of a semester abroad at our partner university in Qingdao under the supervision of German scientists. At the same time, they offer tutorials for Chinese students with German language skills: learning by doing!
  • Master's thesis
    The Master's thesis is carried out at least in part at a plant of one of our German partner companies in China, optionally in conjunction with an internship.
  • "mb-cn" summer school
    The summer school is a four-week program and takes place in September prior to the start of the semester in Qingdao.

Degree: Master of Science (M. Sc.), complemented by a diploma supplement "mb-cn"
