Examinations and study regulations ("Prüfungsordnung")

The Prüfungsordnung is a legal document, adopted by the University Senate, which determines what students of the Master Program SSE must do (fulfill) in order to achieve the Master's degree in Sustainable Systems Engineering (SSE). Regulations for different programs can be different; so always make sure you know the regulations which are valid for you.

The Prüfungsordnung is currently available in German here. An English translation will follow soon. In the meantime, the most important regulations will be summarized in easy words below (soon).


Exam registration interdisciplinary profile

Exam registration in case of courses taken at other faculties - usually courses of the “interdisciplinary profile” - is often not possible via HISINONE for technical reasons.

We have therefore created a form specifically for the SSE that you may (and must) use for the registration of exams in the framework of the interdisciplinary profile at OTHER faculties.

Please use the form only for those exams that you cannot register for in HISINONE and which you have taken in the framework of the interdisciplinary profile.

Please note that all other registration and de-registration rules apply as usual. That means you must also de-register via this form and you need to submit the form on time to the Prüfungsamt.

Course registration

The registration for courses at the faculty of engineering in summer term 2018 will take place from 05.03.2017 until 01.04.2017. The dates are published on this website of our faculty.

The week after this, seats in courses with limited capacity will be allocated via a lottery system (Losverfahren) or via module priority system. Thus, from 02.04. until 06.04. no registration or de-registration will be possible.

Starting from 07.04.2018, you may register and de-register again. This is also the date when you will know whether or not you got a seat in a course with limited capacity. Please always deregister from courses once you know you are no longer interested – particularly if they have limited capacity or are laboratories.

Other faculties than the faculty of engineering may have other deadlines and rules; some have not shifted to HISINONE yet for example, so that manual registration might be necessary. Please always check out their websites, too, if you consider taking a course from another faculty (e.g. in the interdisciplinary profile).
