The basis for the compilation of the study schedule is the module list for your subject. For the field of vehicle technology there are two main groups of modules: the basics of the study field and the field of specialization and application.
For the field of basic study we offer two courses with a total of 18 ECTS.
|Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics||6 ECTS,
SoSe 2014, portfolio-examination||The course was
previously called "Vehicle Dynamics
|Fundamentals of Automotive
Engineering||12 ECTS, WiSe 2014/15, written
In addition we recommend visiting the course at the department Combustion engine:
- Powertrains - Introduction (6 ECTS, written exam)
In the field specialization and application we offer two courses with 12 ECTS in total.
|Course||ECTS, Date, Examination
|Analysis of Traffic Accidents||6 ECTS, WiSe
2014/15, written exam|
|Matlab/Simulink using examples of Vehicle
Dynamics||6 LP, every Semester as block course,
portfolio-examination||Requires "Fundamentals of
Vehicle Dynamics". Course size is limited to 14 students. Further
information can be found in the course
In addition we recommend visiting the following courses:
- Combustion engines (12 ECTS, portfolio-examination)
- Transmission technology (6 ECTS, portfolio-examination)
- Mobile agricultural machinery (6 ECTS, portfolio-examination)
Thus equipped, you should have a very good basis for managing the postgraduaded study or the career start.
Types of Examination
- An oral exam is carried out by at least one examiner in the presence of an observer. Exams may be conducted in groups or as individual exams.
- Within the scope of an oral exam, tasks may also be assigned to a reasonable extent for written treatment provided that the verbal character is not reversed.
- The oral exam must be carried out within three months of enrollment. The examiner and the candidate may agree on exceptions with the consent of the examination board and extend the deadline.
- If there are several authorized examiners for a module in which an oral exam is scheduled, the candidate is entitled to select an examiner from among them. On important grounds, in particular in case of excessive examination workload on the selected examiner, the examination board may nominate another examiner upon reasoned application of the examiner, in consultation with the candidate.
- The exam duration per candidate is at least 20 minutes and a maximum of 60 minutes. The maximum duration can be exceeded where appropriate, with the candidate’s consent.

The examiner may restrict the number of potential candidates by specifying transparent criteria. Enrollment for the oral re-examination at the responsible body of the Central University Administration is not required. The oral exam is assessed as “pass” or “fail”.
- If the oral re-examination is deemed “pass”, the assessment shall be set to “sufficient” (4.0) for the written exam.
- The portfolio examination constitutes a standard type of exam, in which students can continuously provide Different types of specific results within the teaching units of a module. On the one hand, the portfolio examination allows for adequate adjustment of the exam type to curriculum content and learning materials, and on the other hand is ideally suited to establishing that the relevant skills objectives have been achieved.
