Information about coursework and examinations

  • Can examinations and coursework from another degree programme be recognised?

    Successfully completed examinations and coursework can be recognised under certain conditions. At the beginning of the degree programme, the correct application should be submitted to the <link en faculty committees-commissions examination-boards pruefungsausschuss-et>Examination Board for Electrical Engineering. Further information can be found in the Examination Regulations under § 10.

  • What is the module handbook and why do I need it?

    The module handbook lists the modules and lectures which you can attend according to the examination regulations of your degree programme. By clicking on your degree programme, you can search the database directly. For each degree programme, you will find different PDF editions of the module handbook database. Twice a year, the module handbook for the upcoming semester are checked by the Committee on Teaching and the Curriculum to ensure that they enable you to study properly. All courses listed in the module handbook should also be found in both the LUH course catalogue and Stud.IP, ideally under the same title.

  • How do I register for conditional examinations?

    Registration for the conditional examinations takes place directly at the respective institute.

  • How do I register for an exam?

    Each semester, you must register online for examinations and coursework with the Examination Office, during the corresponding registration period.

  • How can I have my coursework and examinations certified?

    As a rule, the results of completed examinations and coursework are entered directly into your online examination account by the lecturer. In individual cases, this is not possible, e.g., in the case of freely selectable, cross-degree-programme examinations or coursework. In this case, please ask the examiner/lecturer to issue a certificate (called a "Schein" in German) bearing the result. You should then submit this certificate to the Examination Office.

  • Which courses can I attend in Studium Generale and how are my credit points certified?

    To further deepen and supplement the subject-specific and interdisciplinary knowledge, courses are taken in the competence field "Additional and Key Competences" within the framework of the Studium Generale. The subjects are recognised with the credit points of the offering institution. The content of the competence field is divided into a subject-related and a free Studium Generale. A selection list with the allocation of the courses to the subject-related and free Studium Generale results from the information in the faculty-internal module catalogue (Modkat). Further information can be found on the pages of the Examination Board.

  • What are advanced level labs and what do I have to consider when registering them?

    An advanced-level laboratory exercise (lab) is one of many specialty labs offered by different subject-specific sections, consisting of 8 afternoon experimental sessions plus preparation, follow-up and assessment discussions, which are rewarded with a total of 4 credit points. The allocation of places for advanced level labs follows the central registration and allocation procedure of the faculty.

    The advanced-level labs are not the coursework labs belonging to the modules, but instead more substantial independent labs. The labs which are offered exclusively for (technical) computer scientists require registration directly with the institutes. Please refer to the Stud.IP for announcements.

    For further information please see the FAQ.

  • How do I register for my master’s degree thesis?

    At least 80 credit points are required before you can register for the master’s degree thesis. First, please submit the appropriate form to the Examination Office for approval, and then to your first and second examiners for their signatures. Without the approval of the Examination Office, neither a topic can be issued nor the thesis started. After successful registration, the topic can be issued and thus work on the master’s degree thesis can begin. The completed master’s degree thesis must be submitted in paper form and additionally in electronic form within six months of the topic’s issue. The master’s degree thesis should be normally be assessed by both examiners within one month of submission, but at the latest within two months. A declaration must be submitted together with the master 's degree thesis. The thesis is submitted directly to the responsible institute.

  • Which Examination Board is responsible for me?

    The <link en faculty committees-commissions examination-boards pruefungsausschuss-et>Electrical Engineering Examination Board is responsible for the degree programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Sc./M.Sc.), Power Engineering (B.Sc./M.Sc.) and Mechatronics (B.Sc.). It monitors the examinations offered and decides extraordinary questions. The head of the Examination Board is Prof. Hofmann. Please always contact the responsible person at the Examination Office first, Ms. Julia Schleining.
