Orientation Examination

You have to take the course-related orientation examination for the first time after the 2nd term at the latest and have to pass it by the 3rd term. There is no possibility to repeat the examination after failing two times! The orientation examination consists of different module examinations. Please find detailed information in the module handbook or the examination regulations.

 

Mandatory Modules

The core part consists of mandatory modules of the subjects "Theoretical Informatics", "Practical Informatics", "Computer Engineering", and "Mathematics" aswell as other Key Qualifications. Please find information on these courses in the module handbook.

 

Optional Modules

You also have to complete optional modules for up to 29 credit points (depending upon the mathematics lecture). You have to attend at least two core modules and one pro-seminar.
The module handbook offers a complete list of the different optional modules.

 

Complementary Modules

Complementary modules give the formal core element a practical touch and demonstrate how Informatics can be applied in (real) working life.

In the course of the selected complementary programme, you have to attend modules with a scope of 21 credit points.

Electable courses are:

  • Grundlagen des Rechts (Foundations of Law)
  • Elektro- und Informationstechnik (Electronic Engineering and Information Technology)
  • Maschinenbau (Engineering)
  • Mathematik (Mathematics)
  • Physik (Physics)
  • Wirtschaftswissenschaften (Economics)

Again the module handbook offers further information.

 

Key Qualifications

Key and interdisciplinary qualifications train skills that are not directly related to an Informatics course but which are nevertheless advantageous in your later professional life. The key qualifications module  provides 6 credit points.
The main provider of courses are the House of Competence (HoC), the Centre for Cultural and General Studies (ZAK) and the KIT Sprachzentrum.

 

Bachelor Thesis

You finish your studies by writing the Bachelor thesis which will give you 15 credit points.

Admission requirements:

  • Normally, the student is in his oder her third session;
  • A maximum ofone mandatory module of the first two sessions has not been passed yet;
  • The application for admission has been filed three month prior to taking the
    module examination at the latest.

 

You can find the bachelor theses being offered at the time in the announcements of the chairs (notice-board, website).
