(1) A vocational first degree comprising at least 210 credit points (CP).

(2) In specially justified individual cases, applicants who meet less than 210 CP as admission requirements but the subject-specific admission requirements in accordance with (5) may complete a certificate module totalling 30 CP based on § 4 Para. 7 Sentence 7 of the Higher Education Examination Ordinance of 04 March 2015 (GVBl.

The certificate module comprises a project of 15 CP to be defined by the course spokesperson and evaluated by a university lecturer, as well as three binding, supporting courses of 5 CP each. The project must be concretely definable and have a task definition from the field of technical management. The result of the project is presented in a written project documentation of approx. 30 pages. The project documentation is assessed as an examination performance for the certificate module undifferentiated with "with success" / "without success". Evaluation criteria for the project documentation are the quality of the content, consistency of the structure and argumentation, the technical documentation, a reflection of the project results and experiences as well as conclusions from the project. Courses offered are "Modellierung und Simulation", "Verkehrslogistik" and "Spezifikation technischer Systeme". The successful participation in the examinations in these courses will be assessed as an examination achievement for the certificate module undifferentiated with "with success" / "without success". The total of 30 CP from the certificate module must be proven by the beginning of the Master's programme.
