- Type of instruction
The teaching is a mix between lectures and assignments, hands-on and group work.
The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)Exam in one or more subjectsSubject/module is tested with the following modulesType of examCombined written and oral examinationThe part-exams that are weighted 20% are written exams.
The part-exams test whether the learning objectives for the individual semester modules have been. However, the part-exams that are weighted 20% focus mainly on the learning objectives for the knowledge and skills categories.
The part-exam that is weighted 60% is a written assignment with an individual oral defence.
It is the project submitted by the student that serves as the starting point for the oral part of the part-exam that is weighted 60%. The 60% part-exam tests the learning objectives within the categories of knowledge, skills and competencies for all the semester modules.
The oral exam lasts 30 min. incl. grading. An overall grade is given according to the 7-point grading scale.
At the start of the semester, the Head of Programme may decide that the two part-exams that are weighted 20% each can be combined into one part-exam weighted 30%. If so, the weighting of the 60% part-exam will be increased to 70%. Students will be informed about such a combination of part-exams at the start of the semester.
If part-exams weighted 20% each are combined, the resulting 30% part-exam need not be passed. The part-exam that is weighted 70% must be passed, and the total weighted result must be at least 02. The grade of 02 cannot be obtained by rounding up.
The overall grade for the second semester is the weighted average of module 4 case,module 5 case and theexam project.The total grade is rounded to the nearest grade in the 7-point grading scaleaccording to the arithmetic rounding method.However, there is no rounding up to the grade of 02. The total grade for the 2. semester is the weighted average of the grade for the module 4 case(weights 20%)!The grade forthe module 5 case (weights 20%) Grades for exam project (weights 60%)The semester is passed when the student achieves a total grade of 02 as a minimum and meets the prerequisite conditions for each module and the exam project.
