Semesters and ECTS

Learn about the subjects and ECTS credits on the Automation Engineering programme

Programme structure

Subjects and modules are interwoven so that the students learn to apply all their skills and competences on a complex set of problems and not only on isolated single subject problems. 

Incoming students therefore have to follow all activities of a semester, meaning they have to follow all 30 ECTS of one semester - students cannot be exempt from single subjects or mix subjects from different courses and different semesters.

The Automation Engineering programme equals a total of 120 ECTS credits.
