FAQ Bachelor Informatics Exam Regulation 2010
Only. the following can be brought into the Bachelor's program:
- Courses listed in the module handbook
- Seminars and project work offered by the computer science departments
- Seminars and project work offered in the chosen field of application (provided that the requirements correspond to those in computer science)
The following applies to examinations for basic modules for which the first attempt was made in the summer semester 2008 or later: If such an examination is failed for the first time, the second examination attempt must be registered and executed within 4 semesters and the third examination attempt within 6 semesters after the first failure. If an excused non-attendance leads to exceeding the time period, the attempt must be repeated in the next examination period. The examination board decides on exceptions. This regulation applies only to the named examinations: Examinations for main modules and examinations for basic modules for which the first attempt was in or before WS 07/08 may be repeated at any time.
Do the project and seminar modules have to match the application area in terms of content? What about the bachelor thesis?
The examination regulations stipulate that the modules project, seminar, elective focus and bachelor thesis must be assigned to the same focus. This will often be related to the application area, but may also correspond to an independently chosen sub-area of computer science. For the assignment a content-related reference is sufficient, formal criteria do not have to be met.
It is possible to complete two projects of 6CP each, in the same or different subject areas, instead of one project of 12CP.
When student involvement (to the extent of 3CP) is brought in, the division 9 + 3 is also permissible.
Can tutoring activities and participation in student self-government be brought into the study program?
These activities can be included in the module Key Competences to the extent of a maximum of 3 CP and additionally in the module Project to the extent of 3 CP. These activities are not graded, i.e. the module grade results from the grade of the other CP brought into the module. The following regulations apply:
Tutoring activities must relate to a course in the Computer Science program offered by an examiner in the Computer Science teaching unit. The examiner must assess the performance as passed. The scope and assessment criteria are agreed upon before the activity begins.
Activities in student self-administration can only be recognized if there is active participation of at least 3 semesters. The elected student council certifies these scopes. In addition, a report of approximately 5 pages must be prepared and evaluated by the Dean of Studies as passed. The report contains an outline of the activities carried out with a focus on personal achievements and a reflection. The Dean of Studies may call in other examiners (e.g. committee chairs) to evaluate the performance.
Can any project/seminar offered by computer science departments be included in the Project or Seminar modules?
No, the course must be suitable for Bachelor students (check with the lecturer). Some courses are aimed at both Bachelor and Master students (with different requirements). When registering in the HIS system, make sure that the course is marked as a Bachelor course!
Can I add other projects or seminars to the study program in addition to the Project and Seminar modules?
The inclusion of further projects is not possible. Further seminars can be brought in if this is provided for in the module handbook (e.g. in WP Practical Computer Science).
According to the examination regulations, registration is only possible after you have successfully completed all basic modules. You will need the following documents for registration:
- Certificate of company internship
- Key competence certificates, if not listed in the HIS system
- Registration form for the Bachelor thesis (2 copies and signed)
- Details of chosen project/seminar and WP focus, if not already completed (see examination regulations). Please contact Mrs. Landefeld for the registration.
Compulsory courses are usually offered annually. In contrast, there are no guarantees for the remaining courses (elective, applied, SRW/key competencies), i.e., the handbook is to be understood as a list of courses that can be credited in the degree program, not as the sole basis for long-term study planning (unlike the Master's Handbook). Although many courses are offered annually or biennially, longer intervals are possible and a course may have been offered only in the past but dropped in the future. Events for the current semester are listed in the HIS-LSF. For long-term planning, you can only inquire in advance with the respective lecturers (e.g. of the application area).
