Curriculum Workshop

The curricula of the majors were developed, and in part fundamentally redesigned in accordance with the program ProfiL², in curriculum workshops during the accreditation and reaccreditation process: The module objectives were comprehensively derived from the objectives of the degree program, which are based on the requirements of the labor market and are oriented towards sustainable educability.

Educators in the faculty for Process Engineering, Energy and Mechanical Systems regularly meet to discuss and evaluate the module objectives. In these discussions, the educators critically discuss the learning success in the modules and – if necessary – prepare revisions in the teaching concepts. The learning objectives stated in the modules are used as indicators to qualitatively review the teaching quality in accordance with a quality assurance cycle. Successfully achieving the learning objectives from one module is a requirement for continuing onto a new module in the next semester. If the educators in this module observe that these entry requirements are only partially fulfilled, they can alert their respective colleagues to this fact in the curriculum workshop. Being able to commonly determine the teaching content every semester ensures a continuous evaluation of the teaching content as well as ensuring that it matches the competency profiles required of the graduates, if necessary through corrective measures. This exacting and time consuming process contributes greatly to quality assurance in teaching and was developed together with the educators.
