Structure and Contents of Your Study Program

Zeitmanagement The electrical engineering and information technology course and the corresponding industrial engineering course are demanding and each is a full-time course. This means that you will have to spend an average of 40 hours a week on your studies. You will attend courses only for a fraction of this time. For a considerable part of this time, you will work independently and in learning groups on topics that were taken up in the courses. The semster breakesare no exceptions, since this is where the exams are and you will have to prepare accordingly.

With the seven semesters of the comparatively long bachelor’s program, we prepare you well for a scientifically oriented master’s program. The master's program at TF comprises three semesters, so that you can theoretically complete your studies in ten semesters. However, it is advantageous not to have a particularly short study period, but rather to focus on the quality of your studies. In addition to professional competence, this includes involvement in student councils, clubs and associations, discovering other languages ​​and cultures during stays abroad and last but not least developing your own personality.

Even before the first semester, you will have a variety of opportunities to prepare yourself professionally and, above all, to get to know your future fellow students and your study environment. You can find more information about these offers here.

In the second week of the semester, your studies then start according to the timetable that you have put together. In order to understand which courses you should attend in the first semester, you must first find out about them:

Zeitmanagement At the TF, courses are thematically combined into modules. For example, a module can include a lecture, an exercise and an internship, each of which is dedicated to a specific topic. An overview of the course of studies as well as detailed information on the modules can be found in the respective module handbook of your course.

In the module manuals, all courses of the respective course are listed and described in detail. The courses are also related to each other. For example, you can find out whether you must have passed another course before completing one course. You will also find out which module the corresponding course belongs to.

The module handbook also explains in detail the goals and contents of the course and the modules and courses offered.

In the  examination regulations for your degree program, you will find all the guidelines that are equally binding for you as a student and for the lecturers. The examination regulations have the character of a statute and define, for example, how examinations are to be carried out and the criteria according to which theses are to be assessed.

Attachment 1 to the examination regulations - the study schedule (usually on page 8) - is very important for your start of your studies. It contains the arrangement of the modules planned by the lecturers in your respective semester. Especially in the first semester, it is highly recommended to stick to this course of study plan. Later, if necessary, you can complete modules earlier than planned or postpone processing to a following semester.
