Most of the Bachelor's modules are offered in German. Students with German language skills can therefore attend the corresponding courses. In many cases, English-speaking students are provided with literature lists by the lecturers; English-speaking students prepare themselves independently for the examination of the respective Bachelor's module on the basis of the literature. Of course, the lecturers and their academic staff are available to answer any questions you may have about the module and the learning content.

While you register online for examinations for the Master’s modules of your degree program, you register in written form for the examinations for the Bachelor’s modules. Online registration is not possible for you for these Bachelor’s examinations. You will find the form for the written registration of a Bachelor’s examination on the website of the Examination Office for Electrical and Informatiion Engineering.
