Study overview Bachelor Advanced Technology

Challenging problems, practical solutions

During the first year of the Bachelor’s programme Advanced Technology you will become familiar with the basis of technical and scientific disciplines. In the projects and practical assignments – which together make up around 20% of your programme – you can immediately apply the knowledge you gain. The second year is about broadening and deepening your knowledge and you can start to pursue your own interests by getting familiar with popular Master’s programmes. The third year is made up of elective modules in which you will prepare yourself for the Master’s programme of your choice and for your graduation assignment – the final step you must take before you can call yourself a Bachelor of Science.

First time at university

When you are a first-year student, you experience many new things. Here we start explaining at least a few of them. 

You complete modules

At university you will come across something called study credits, also known as EC(s). The abbreviation EC is derived from the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which was designed for the comparison of courses internationally. One credit equals 28 hours of work; you need to acquire 60 credits each year. You will receive credits for every assignment you pass. Your programme assigns fixed numbers of hours to each assignment, project report or exam. In the first year you need to get at least 45 out of 60 points to be able to continue to the second year.

Study points - how do they work?

Did you obtain 45 or more credit points? Then you can continue to the 2nd year

Our goal is to get you to the right place as quickly as possible, which is why we apply the principle of a binding recommendation. All first-year students receive this at the end of the year. You will receive positive advice if you have achieved 45 or more of the 60 EC in the first year. Negative advice is binding and means that you have to quit the course. Under certain circumstances, despite a too low score, we can still give you a positive recommendation, for example, if we have sufficient confidence that you are in the right place. Do personal circumstances such as illness or problems interfere with your study performance? Student Affairs Coaching & Counselling (SACC) will help you further.
