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

MAB_19_IP_5.05.MST (P241-0278, P241-0279) Mechanical and Process Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 5, mandatory course, Specialization Industrial Production
PRI-PUQ (P223-0010) Production Informatics, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2023 , semester 5, mandatory course
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).
45 class hours (= 33.75 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 56.25 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
