B.Eng. Automotive Engineering

Step-by-Step Guide for International Students

1.    Choose the modules you would like to enrol for

The module handbook provides you with all the necessary information about your study programme. Consult the study plan on page 5 to get an overview of the offered modules and the semester in which they take place. Please note that some modules may only be offered in a certain period: 1st and 3rd are offered only in winter (WS), 2nd and 4th only in summer (SS), 5th to 7th in winter and summer. An English translation and other useful information can be found in the document Overview.

The following two steps are not applicable for the first Learning Agreement since the timetables are only published one month prior to the beginning of the next semester. 

2.    Consult the general timetable

The timetables are normally published one month prior to the beginning of the lectures. Please note that there are several timetables corresponding to the semester numbers in the study plan. If you have difficulties recognising the abbreviations in the timetables, please consult the above-mentioned document.

3.    Create your own timetable

You can choose your lectures from the three columns. On the left you see the lecturers' last name or its abbreviation and in the middle the abbreviations of the lecture. If you would like to choose courses from different semesters or columns, please make sure that they do not overlap.

In addition to the obligatory modules there are optional modules, so called electives (Wahlmodule). Please keep in mind that not all of them are offered in both semesters and that there is a limited number of participants. International students should enquire free capacity by contacting the lecturers via email. You can find their names in the module handbook and their contact details in the official list of staff of the TH Köln.
