Deadlines summer term 2024:

(For details, please click the corresponding item!)

  • Registration for study achievements: until May 15th, 2024

    You can register for study achievements (e.g. mandatory submission of exercises, lab assignments, homework, seminars, project work, if applicable also as a prerequisite for examinations) in this semester from 01.03.2024 until 15.05.2024 at the latest. As long as you are not registered for the study achievement, you cannot and may not submit any achievements! Please check the module descriptions (see below!) to see in which modules you have to complete a study achievement.

  • Registration for written examinations: until 14 days before the exam

    Registration for written examinations runs from 21.05.2024 until 14 days before the written examination (unisono calculates to the exact time!).
    In the PO 2012, registration for core and elective subjects is only possible if a mentor approval has been obtained. The submission deadline for this semester is 05.07.2024.

    Please note different deadlines for examinations in modules that are imported from other degree programs. Information on this can be found at the examination office of the exporting degree program.
    The deadlines mentioned are hard; registration after the deadline is only possible in justified cases of hardship by submitting a written application to the Examination Board!
  • Registration for oral examinations: until 7 days before the exam

    Registration for oral examinations (online registration in unisono and subsequent coordination of a date with the examiner) must take place at least 7 days before the examination date (preferably well in advance!).

    Important: Registered oral examinations that will no longer take place in the registered semester must be deregistered no later than 8 days before the end of the semester. Exam registrations that are not taken will not be carried over to the following semester and it is no longer possible to deregister or re-register. In this case, you will automatically be marked as " not present" (this means a grade of 5.0).
  • Deregistration: until 7 days before the exam, cancellation due to illness: until 3 working days after the exam

    Regular deregistration from exams (i.e. without a medical certificate) is possible in unisono up to 7 days before the exam. Please note that the unisono system calculates this deadline based on the actual time of the exam.

    In the event of illness: The withdrawal form must be sent to the Examination Office in writing or by e-mail (PDF) together with a medical certificate no later than three working days (PO 2012: five working days) after the examination. If submitted by post, the date of the postmark applies.

Examination and organizational Matters

  • Examination planning

  • Recognition of Examinations and Study Achievements

    • If you wish to receive recognition of achievements in your degree program that you have completed at another university, please fill out this form and send it to the Examinations Office. Please note that you must apply for recognition of all achievements from the other university at the same time with a single application form.

      • You must enclose a handwritten signed declaration in your thesis that you have written your work independently - in the case of group work, your appropriately marked share of the work - and have not used any sources or aids other than those indicated, and that you have marked quotations.
      • If possible, please submit your theses in person during the opening hours of the Examination Office Electrical Engineering or Computer Science.

        If this is not possible, send the thesis in due time by post by the deadline (the date of the postmark applies) to:

        Fakultät IV
        Prüfungsamt ETI
        Hölderlinstr. 3

Mentor's approval

Information on Changing the Examination Regulations (PO 2012 --> FPO 2021)

Validity of the old Examination Regulations (PO 2012)

Please note that the old examination regulations from 2012 will expire in the foreseeable future and you will have to complete your studies by then or change to the new subject-specific examination regulations of 2021:

  • Bachelor Computer Science: until September 30, 2025
  • Bachelor Dual Study Computer Science: until March 31, 2026 
The Master Computer Science with exam regulations from 2012 has already expired on March 31, 2024!

Change of examination regulations (from PO 2012 to FPO 2021)

Students of the old PO 2012 can transfer to the studies according to the new subject-specific examination regulations 2021 at the beginning of each semester at the International Office (Study Secretariat), if they wish to do so. It can be advantageous to switch if you are still at the beginning of your studies and/or have not yet achieved many credit points.

Due to the changed structure of the study program, you should in any case check beforehand to what extent your already completed credits will be automatically transferred or can be recognized upon application. Please refer to the relevant applications for recognition for the Bachelor's- and Master's programs, which must be submitted to the Examination Office.

Some important formal differences between PO 2012 and FPO 2021 (without guarantee of completeness!)

  • The FPO 2021 no longer allows a completely free choice of specialization, but only four fixed specialization areas. The need for mentor approvals is thereby eliminated.
    In the Bachelor's program, the specialization must be selected at the latest with the first registration of a study performance or examination in the specialization area. The choice is made via the campus management system unisono, usually after the third or fourth semester. It can be changed once upon request.
    In the Master's program, the specialization must already be selected with the application / enrollment.
  • The FPO 2021 also allows compulsory courses in English in the Bachelor and in the Master. It is possible to study the Master completely in English.
  • In contrast to the PO 2012, the FPO 2021 provides for certain compensation options for elective modules from the specialization that are ultimately not passed (maximum of two choices of another module; if necessary, one change of specialization; §10(4) FPO-B or FPO-M).
  • The deadline for withdrawing from exams due to illness or other compelling reasons is three working days after the exam in FPO 2021 (§18(3) of the Framework Examination Regulations). In PO 2012 it was five working days (§25(2) of the Uniform Regulations).
  • According to the FPO 2021, a free attempt for an examination is no longer possible if the examination has already been repeated regularly (due to non-passing) (§10a of the FPO-B or FPO-M).
  • The processing time for final theses in the FPO 2021 is 18 weeks (Bachelor) or 26 weeks (Master), instead of 4 or 6 months in the PO 2012.
    In the FPO 2021, a colloquium (20 min. talk + discussion) is mandatory for the final thesis, whose result is included in the grade by 25%.
