The first year (B1) consists of a study burden of 60 EC (European Credits). If you do not meet the standard, you will receive a negative binding recommendation no later than on the final day of the academic year (31 August). This means that you cannot continue the programme. Also, after a negative recommendation you cannot enrol for the same programme for a period of three academic years after the date of the binding recommendation.
The rules are described in detail in the Students’ Charter for Civil Engineering.
