The below information particularly serves enrolled students in academic and organizational matters.

Examination Regulations

The Examination Regulations are the legal basis of your course of studies: they determine the scope of your studies and inform about all rules and regulations regarding admission, exams, course structure, master thesis etc. These rules are regularly updated. Please refer to the version as indicated for your year of intake.

Curriculum Changes

Please refer to this website of the faculty of Mechanical Engineering for a detailled description of how to change your curriculum.

The curriculum change process encompasses all the steps necessary to receive an amended curriculum from the standard M. Sc. CAME curriculum. This particularly applies to:

  • Taking modules in an elective field outside of the elective catalogue in order to create an individual academic profile.
  • Taking additional subjects (e.g. language courses) that will be listed on the transcript.
  • Taking modules outside of the course of study in preparation for changing a course of study.
  • Stays abroad, during which alternative courses are completed.


Additionally we would like to share some PDFs in the below download section, which provide further information for CAME students.
