Supplemental Examination
Supplemental examination in applied geometry is required before completion of the bachelor's degree programme if this subject was not completed satisfactorily with at least 4 credit hours at a higher-level secondary school ("Oberstufe") after the eighth grade.

The curriculum is the basis of a degree programme. A look at the curriculum for the Bachelor Mechatronics gives you a detailed overview of the structure, content, examination regulations and qualification profile of this Bachelor's degree.

The curriculum can clarify several important questions before you start your studies. For example, which criteria must be fulfilled for enrolment in the Bachelor Mechatronics, how long the programme lasts, which modules must be completed and much more.

The 2011W curriculum is currently valid for the Bachelor's programme Mechatronics.

Studies Induction and Orientation Stage (STEOP)

(1) During the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage, the following course examinations, which may be repeated fourth, must be completed satisfactorily:

1. Mathematics 1 (VO4, 5 ECTS-Credits, § 7 par. 1 no 1 lit a),
2. Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering 1 (VO2, 3 ECTS-Credits, § 7 par. 1 no. 4 lit a).

(2) Successful passing of all exams of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage entitles to passing all further courses and examinations as well as to writing the Bachelor's Thesis.

(3) Before successful completion of the Studies Induction and Orientation Stage courses amounting to 22.0 ECTS-Credits may be passed. The requirements specified in the curriculum must be met.

General Information

Recommended Course Sequence

The exemplary course sequence given below is recommended for full-time students beginning their study programme in the winter semester. The table shows one possible course sequence for the bachelor's programme and is not compulsory. Delays resulting from repeated examinations are not taken into account.

The standard duration of the study programme is 6 semesters or 180 ECTS-Credits, whereby according to the Universities Act of 2002, a workload of 1,500 (real) hours per academic year must be fulfilled, corresponding to 60 ECTS-Credits (one ECTS-Credit is equivalent to a workload of 25 hours).
