Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Bachelor Thesis
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011
Module code: FT32
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 7
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Research paper (thesis) and oral presentation

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have advanced and trained their engineering working methods in a complex working environment with specialist knowledge and an overview of technical contexts, thereby strengthening and developing their ability to organize themselves and their work.
This will enable them to solve engineering and automotive tasks in an industrial or lab environment by applying scientific methods independently and within a specified time frame.
The presentation during the colloquium will strengthen their ability to independently and comprehensibly present and explain the development and implementation of their solutions and defend them competently.

Module content:
Independent work on an automotive engineering problem. The Bachelor thesis is an examination requirement. Its purpose is to show that students are able to solve an automotive engineering problem independently using engineering methods within a given timeframe and to present the results in a structured and concentrated manner.
In addition, procedures and results must be presented and defended orally within the framework of a presentation.
