The order of the experiments has changed from winter term 2019/20. In order to enable the completion of the "old" modules, the old sequence will still be offered once in WiSe2019/20 and SoSe2020. It is recommended to complete the "old" modules as soon as possible. The transitional arrangement will then end and only the "new" sequence in the module will be available!
In the second semester, you have the opportunity to choose a basic technical course for the first time. Your study plan includes three technical foundation modules, each of which consists of two subjects. You can choose from the five modules with the subjects:
- Components (materials and semiconductor components)
- Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering II (Power Engineering and Measurement Technology)
- Signal and system theory (signal theory and system theory
- Theory of Electrical Engineering (Field Theory and Electromagnetic Waves)
- Electrical Engineering for Electrical Engineers (Basics of Technical Computer Science and Basics of Computer Architecture
In addition, the second semester not only includes the choice of a basic technical course, but also a laboratory practical, if applicable.
The choice of the basic technical courses also influences your options in the laboratory practical and in the later advanced studies. The laboratory practicals build on the respective basic technical subjects. Your study plan states that you have to choose two of the three laboratory practicals. The choice of laboratory practicals should depend on the chosen basic technical courses, so that the preparation and execution of the experiments is more successful.
With the module combination of Components, Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering II and Signal and System Theory, Laboratory Practicals A and C would be a suitable choice. These modules support the specialisation in Automation Technology.
The module combination Basics of Electrical Engineering II, Signal and System Theory and Technical Computer Science for Electrical Engineers is also a suitable choice for the Laboratory Practicals A and C. However, these modules facilitate the subjects from the specialisation Information Technology.
A module combination of Components, Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering II and Theory of Electrical Engineering are a suitable basis for the specialisation in Microsystems Engineering, as well as for the practical laboratory sessions A and C.
With the module combination of Components, Signal and System Theory and Computer Science for Electrical Engineers, Laboratory Practicals A and B would be a suitable choice. The specialisation in information technology can be supported by this choice.
