Lab Course: Systems Theory and Control Engineering

(course inactive since 04.10.2021)

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Lab Course: Systems Theory and Control Engineering
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Mechatronics and Sensor Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2020
Module code: MST2.PSYS
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 άbung), 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.
4P (4 hours 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: 5
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Term paper

[updated 25.05.2021]
Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

MST2.PSYS (P231-0118) Mechatronics and Sensor Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 5, optional course, technical, course inactive since 04.10.2021
MST2.PSYS (P231-0118) Mechatronics and Sensor Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2020 , semester 5, optional course, technical, course inactive since 04.10.2021

Suitable for exchange students (learning agreement)
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):
MST2.ELE Electronics
MST2.ELT Electrical Engineering
MST2.SYS1 System Theory and Control Engineering 1
