  • autonomously carry out development and applied, engineering and technical organisational work and address individual well-defined tasks in the field of mechanical engineering.

Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).


In order to progress to the second year, students must pass first-year examinations totalling at least 45 ECTS credits.
In order to progress to the third year, students must have passed all first-year examinations (60 credits) and second-year examinations totalling at least 40 credits.
