Description of modules

In the Module Database you can gather more information on learning targets, contents, examination modalities etc of all Computer Science modules.

Examinations

Registration procedures for examinations differ according to the modules chosen:

Modules Business Information Technology, Computer Science, Mathematics and Data Protection

Register via the students' database (StudiDB). Current examination dates are published on the  webpages of the examination office . There you can also find notes on  registration deadlines and on the publication of the examination results for the named modules.

Modules Economics and Business Studies

The modules Economics and Business Studies und the modules Basics of Economics and Statistics  are offered by the Faculty of of Business, Economics and Social Sciences. Therefore the Studienkolleg Business Administration  is responsible.

Registration for courses of the Bachelor and Master degrees Business Management, Chemistry and Business Administration and Business Information Technology and for degrees Computer Science and Mathematics with minor Business Administration is done via OLAT.

The publication of the examination dates and the registration for examinations can be done via Klausur-Online.  (Login: username = immatriculation number, password = RZ-PIN)

Law modules

The modules Civil Law and IT Law are offered by the Faculty of Law. The registration for examinations is done via QIS (Login: username = immatriculation number, password = RZ-PIN).

Compensation for disadvantages

Regulations on compensation for disadvantages for handicapped students can be found under §12 in the examination procedures.

 

Module exam certificates / achievement certificates

Students received module exam certificates for successfully passed modules up to SS 2010.

These can be acquired at the examination office Computer Science. Please bring a valid student card or identity card.

From SS 2010 onwards, Bachelor- and Master-students of Computer Science and Business Information Technology and diploma students of Computer Science will not receive module exam certificates / achievement certificates any longer. These achievements can now be checked in the StudiDB.

In singular cases, Diploma-/Magister-students (not Bachelor/Master) of other degree programmes receive course certificates on request with the university teacher responsible. Alternatively, the examination office on request can compile an achievement overview. This overview is generally accepted by other examination offices.

Transitional arrangements

Over the last months the examination regulations Business Information Technology have been revised to successfully pass the accreditation of the degree program.

Students in the third or higher therefore should change the examination regulations applicable and take the respective courses of the third semester: 

Commercial Application Systems
Software engineering
General Management
Civil Law for students of Economics and Business Studies

The lecture Operating Systems therefore does not need to be passed any longer. Should you already have passed General Management in the first semester, then attend the lectures Accounting and Financial Statements as well as Cost and Activity Accounting.

All further semesters should also follow the new study course plan. Modules of the first two semesters will generally be acknowledged (e.g. P1 for (the more extensive module) Business Information Technology I). 
All in all, take care to reach 180 ECTS-points at the end of your studies and to have about the amount of points per subject (Business Information Technology, Computer Science, Economics and Business Studiesm Basics and Surrounding) required in the new study course plan.

For further, individual questions, contact the departmental student advisor,  Prof. Dr. Andreas Speck,  or the managing director of the examination office,  Private lecturer. Dr. Frank Huch, who will gladly assist you.
