FT69 Automotive Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 6, optional course, technical, course inactive since 27.02.2023
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):

Learning outcomes:
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is not only the basic requirement of any electronics development in the automotive sector, but also a legally required product specification. In this module, students will learn the basic terms, principles and topics related to EMC. After successfully completing this module, students will be able to understand the basic requirements of EMC in vehicles and analyze and identify the causes of interference problems in circuits and systems.
